Recipe: Persimmon-Berry Smoothie with Tonic Herbs

This was a very nice, refreshing organic smoothie made with local California farmers market strawberries, raspberries, persimmons and dates. I also added organic bananas, coconut water/meat and wild extracts of goji, rhodiola, eleuthero and schisandra. 


Blend (of course this recipe does not have to be exact, nature will work her magic): 
- 2 bananas
- 1 persimmon (remove pits)
- handful strawberries
- handful raspberries
- 3 dates (remove pits)
- water & meat of 1 young Thai coconut
- Four Sigma Foods Sport Herbs: goji, rhodiola, eleuthero, schisandra
- pinch Himalayan pink salt

Now feel amazing.
