GrowingGreat at TEDx Event in Manhattan Beach
GrowingGreat will be at the TEDx “Game Changers” event this Saturday, November 15th, from 9-3pm at Manhattan Beach Middle School – more event details here. We will be passing out tastes of a yummy persimmon “pumpkin pie” smoothie (recipe below). We hope to see you there!
Persimmon Pumpkin Pie Spiced Smoothie
- 2 Persimmons, peeled and roughly chopped – either Fuyu short & firm or Hachiya soft & long
- 1 banana rough chopped~ frozen is great and brown ones are best. If bananas aren’t frozen add 1 cup of ice.

- 1 C Hazelnut milk OR other favorite alternative milk like almond
- 1 Tbl coconut butter or oil
- 1 Tbl flaxseeds (freshly ground if not using a VitaMix blender)
- 1 Tbl Chia seeds (the more you add the ticker the consistency)
- 1 Tbl Pumpkin Pie Spice (Spice Hunter is our favorite)

Whirl in blender and serve!
