When persimmons came into season, I bought a basket of them and froze the ones I couldn´t eat at the time. Last night, I wanted to make a raw pie and made this up for the topping. I wanted it to be more of a pudding, but as an ice cream it is perfect! You could experiment and add more pumpkin pie spices, I´m sure it...

Recipe Directions

If like me, you freeze your persimmons whole, just run them under water for a few seconds or immerse in a bowl of slightly warmish water. The skin will literally peel off with absolutely no hassle whatsoever. Not like peeling frozen bananas ;)

Put the ingredients in the blender or food processor and process away. It shouldn´t need any extra liquid, I think it would take away from the gorgeous texture. I suppose you could use frozen bananas as well, but I think they add an extra creaminess that I wouldn´t want to tamper with.

Wait until they ripen and then freeze them. Part of the ice creaminess comes from blending the frozen permimmons.

I bought persimmons, kaki fruit, last thursday on the market and I was thinking on doing an ice cream. I will try your recipe, but I think I will froze the bananas. I do not like to pure or process fresh bananas as they become brown, oxidate, very easily, but it will definitely add extra creaminess like an soft ice cream. Thanks for sharing your ecipe with us.
