So easy, you have no excuse not to try it.

Persimmon Gelato. So easy, you have no excuse not to try it.

We get a box of produce delivered to my house once a month.  It’s not our monthly supply, since my husband has a bottomless pit acting as a stomach.  But here’s why I love it: we get to try out new ingredients, and them turn into new recipes.

Which you can do too.  I’m not saying to go out and subscribe to a produce delivery service today, this is more of an invitation to be creative in the kitchen.  You never know what will come up.  Watching my husband look up a few recipes online, then get busy in the kitchen impressed me.  I smiled and was curious about his diligence, adventurousness and short time it took to prepare me something delicious.

Honestly, I was just going to eat the persimmons as fresh fruit.  They’re sweet and at their peak this time of year.  He chopped and peeled those frozen sweet chunks of fruit, put them in the VitaMix with a dash of vanilla, a single clove, simple syrup and soy creamer made the most delicious and creamy dessert I’ve had in awhile.  It tasted perfect last night.  And I just feasted on it this afternoon.  The clove flavor comes out even more, so does the vanilla.  And the sweetness is at a minimum.

And guess what?  I’ll reward him when he gets home.  Have I mentioned this blog is called Cook This…Get Laid?  Yeah, I thought so.

Persimmon Gelato

  • 3 medium sized persimmons
  • one 1/4 cup of simple syrup
  • a dash of vanilla extract
  • a single clove
  • a 1/4 cup of soy creamer (or heavy cream)

Peel and cut up the persimmons in quarters.  Place them in the freezer for at least 2 hours or as long as you can.  Place them in a VitaMix (or Magic Bullet or food processor), remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.  You may need to add a little more creamer to get it moving around. Once it’s done, you can eat it right away.  Or, place in a bowl and in the freezer overnight for an even better treat.

    I think this will be just the ticket of the Christmas over indulgence. You are indeed a genius!

    Dessert is the usually sweet course that concludes a meal. The food that composes the dessert course includes but is not limited to sweet foods. There is a wide variety of desserts in western cultures now including cakes, cookies, biscuits, gelatins, pastries, ice creams, pies, pudding, and candies. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its natural sweetness…
