Have you ever wondered what to do with sharon fruit? Wonder no more!
Having bought some sharon fruits (persimmons) that looked beautiful and not having a clue what to do with sharon fruit, I made a delicious sharon fruit pudding!
Sharon fruits are very good for you, as they contain iron, calcium and vitamin C.
They’re also low in calories even though they’re sweet, so they’re good to eat if you are watching your weight.
But I like them because they make a beautiful pudding with the most gorgeous colors!
You will need
A blender or hand blender
- ½ cup/60g almonds, cashews, brazils, or walnuts (optional; will give you a thicker, more “milky” pudding. Soak and drain them first for best results)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup, honey, or xylitol (or 4 pitted dates if desired; soak the dates in warm water first if they aren’t soft)
- 2 ripe mangos, persimmons (also known as sharon fruit), or any large and yummy fruit of your choice
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup/130g frozen strawberries or other frozen berries
How you do it
Put everything in the blender and push the button!
