CAQUI (Persimmon) YOGURT SMOOTHIE




Caqui / Persimmon,( pronounced - Ka-ki) an exotic, seasonal fruit looks very much like a tomato. You're likely to mistake it for a tomato at first glance. It has a marvelous texture and exquisite taste,(like chickoo/sapota) but also has some wonderful nutritional properties.In terms of nutrition, the caqui is a very low calorie fruit, ranging between 75 to 85 calories per 100 gram serving, making it a potential winner with diet enthusiasts. It's also a very good course of vitamins A, B1, B2 and E, as well as calcium, iron and protein.

Ingredients:
Caqui ..... 1 ripe
Yogurt .... 1 cup
Peel the caqui and blend it with yogurt. The fruit is so sweet that you don't need to add any sugar or honey. Perfect breakfast idea for kids. For variation you can even add crunchy cereal to it.
Serve chilled.
