You can use fresh and/or frozen bananas. Frozen bananas with give the smoothie a thick, creamy texture.

If you’d like to make “nice cream,” just add less water and more frozen bananas.

Start by putting the water and persimmons into the blender.

This will help ensure there is enough liquid so that the blades are able to move freely and don’t get caught up on the denser, frozen fruit.

If you have a food processor, that would work also well for making nice cream.

Once the persimmons are in, add the bananas (ideally cut into chunks or halves).

Pulse the blender (and adjust the water) until the mixture takes on your preferred consistency.

You can use almond milk (or other plant-based milk) instead of water if you would like a creamier smoothie. It also adds a little extra flavour.

Pour the smoothie into a mug, or scoop the nice cream into a bowl.

Top it all off with a dash of cinnamon, and enjoy!
