I know Persimmons as Sharon fruits and they were one of my ffavourite fruit as a kid. 😋
Persimmon and banana make such a wonderful puree or smoothie for older toodlers. I would add full fat cow milk or coconut milk.
Persimmons are bursting with flavor and Vitamin C. One little persimmon contains almost 17 mg of Vitamin C! This fruit is great to serve to your little one to aid in Iron absorption.
There are 2 types of persimmon, the Fuyu and the Hachiya. The one in the picture is Fuyu which I prefer more.
- 1 ripe banana (cut)
- 1 persimmon (skin removed & cut) (can be steamed for 5 mins if prefered)
- Blend until desired consistency.
For older babies, simply cut them up in bite sizes and serve as finger food known as baby led weaning (blw).
