Great snack you can enjoy during the fall, or any other season if you freeze leftover persimmons like I do. Adjust the spices to your own tasting. Sprinkle with extra coconut or nutmeg if desired.

Cook's Notes:

When I use frozen persimmons (I always freeze leftover ripe persimmons), I leave out the ice. Feel free to leave out shredded coconut and use coconut milk instead of regular milk. When I tried with ginger ale (while leaving out ground ginger), it tasted different but just as good!

Great smoothie. I used coconut milk to make it non-dairy and no ice since that would make it too thick for my taste. Read More

I made it with soy milk. While it was really good I think I'll try it again with dairy. Makes quite a lot. Read More
