Persimmon Smoothie

If your Thanksgiving was anything like mine, it was filled with all sorts of indulgences.

I ate a little bit of everything I don’t usually eat — from the not-so-unhealthy sweet rolls and green bean casserole with bacon… to the criminally unhealthy supersize Cheetos (I know — don’t ask).
