Sunset on the Water
by Gabriel Constans
Persimmons are rich in carbohydrates and potassium and have a wonderful blood-red color: Asian countries have grown them for years, although the United States now leads the world in production of these sugary fruits. This smoothie is the perfect accompaniment to sitting outside and watching the sun go down.
Yield: 4 cups
1/2 persimmon, peeled and seeded
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup raisins
2 cups filtered water
1 tablespoon brown rice syrup
Place all the ingredients in a blender, and mix on medium speed for 1 minute.
Pour into clear glasses and watch the colors upon the horizon.
