Persimmon Pumpkin Chai Smoothie

BY : PUBLISHED : December 14th, 2014 UPDATED: August 25th, 2021

This a smoothie you’ll definitely want to make before fall is officially over! It comes out a beautiful orange color and is ultra creamy and flavorful, while still being a healthy option. This is a very budget-friendly recipe because it features some of that pumpkin you have leftover from other recipes, along with nuts bought in bulk and fruit from the freezer. Make it for breakfast, lunch, or dessert if you like!
