Fall has finally made its way to the lovely Southern California coast! The +70 degree weather might not be showing it, but our farmers market is… Persimmons have arrived! These delectable fall fruits are a personal favorite in the Curry household, especially in our Pumpkin Spice Smoothies. Persimmons are an excellent source of vitamin A, C, B6, manganese and potassium, as well as soluble fiber—which is shown to protect against heart disease and lower blood sugar levels. Give them a try at your local farmer markets!
