Last week, my lovely friend and photographer Christina, gave to me a big basket of organic persimmons from her boyfriend’s garden.

Persimmons are relatively high in calories, but very low in fat. These orange round fruits are also a really good source of Vitamins C, antioxidants and dietary fiber. I like to serve my Persimmons Cake for breakfast with a warm matcha tea or as a dessert combined with diary-free vanilla ice cream.

For this porridge I normally use blueberries, raspberries and blackberries mixed together. Berries are a very good source of vitamin C, that will boost your Immune System.
