Deliciously sweet, vibrant in color and in season here in New England, persimmons are a wonderful compliment to juicing this winter! The bright orange hue of this juice let’s us know it’s loaded with immune boosting nutrients like beta-carotene, phenolic phytonutrients, vitamin C and metabolism supporting manganese. One study found persimmons may be more effective than apples at helping reduce heart disease in part due to their high soluble fiber content. While the skin which is extracted in juicing is high in fiber, soluble fiber persists into the juice.
