Coconut Persimmon Smoothie

The Persimmon is a edible fruit which is yellow-orange color when ripe or dark red- orange depending on the species and variety. The ripe fruit has a high glucose content and has balanced protein profile. Like tomatoes, persimmons are not popularly considered as berries, but in terms of botanical morphology the fruit is in fact a berry.
