Persimmon Matcha Grapefruit Smoothie

Persimmon Matcha Grapefruit Smoothie

It's time for our first smoothie recipe. Made with love by Julia from the south of Germany.

We decided to keep it simple, with just 4 ingredients. Banana, grapefruit, matcha tea and persimmon fruit.

Juicing the grapefruit

Persimmon fruit are powerhouses of nutrition. They're packed full of vitamin A, vitamin C, B vitamins, antioxidants and dietary fibre. Here's some of their health benefits:

  • Anti-tumor
  • Anti-aging
  • Eye health
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Better circulation
  • Increased metabolism (boost energy, immune system, improved digestion, boost immune system)
