If you don't already know, be sure your persimmons are ripe. An unripe persimmon is very astringent and nowhere near as pleasurable as the sweetness of a slightly overripe one. When they're ripe they'll be very soft, almost jelly-like inside, and incredibly delicious.
- 4 Persimmons (no need to peel)
- 1/4 cup Chia Seeds
- 1 or 2 tsp Vanilla Essence
- 1/4 cup Maple Syrup (or to your preference of sweetness)
- 1 heap teaspoon Pumpkin Spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, lemon peel, cardamom, ginger)
- 1/2 cup water
Blend and serve
If you want it a little thicker, set it in the fridge for a few minutes and let the chia seeds do their work. Sprinkle chopped dates and walnuts or nut of your choosing on top. Enjoy!
