Persimmon Smoothie from Catherine McCord's Smoothie Project | Photograph by Colin Price for Abrams Books

You might not be able to put your finger on what makes this smoothie from Catherine McCord’s cookbook, Smoothie Project: The 28-Day Plan to Feel Happy and Healthy No Matter Your Age, unique, but you’ll want to keep drinking it over and over again. The secret ingredient is persimmon, which provides sweetness and creaminess while letting the mango shine through. This smoothie tastes like the freshest, healthiest Creamsicle you’ve ever had.

If you’ve never had persimmon before, you must try it! They are both delicious and a game-changing ingredient in smoothie making. Persimmons are known for their sweet honey-like flavor and the wildly divergent textures of the two main varieties.

Fuyu persimmons resemble apples in both shape and crispness of their flesh, while Hachiya persimmons are more oblong and their flesh has a delicate, creamy, jelly-like consistency, which makes them perfect for eating with a spoon — or, even better, putting in your smoothies. Fuyu are great for smoothies, too, but no matter the variety you pick, make sure they super ripe before going into the blender.

There’s plenty of protein in this smoothie from the almond butter and hemp seeds and a boost of finger from the fruit, veg, and flax.
