Blueberry-Pomegranate Smoothie

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.5

This is a great smoothie recipe. I usually just throw stuff in the blender so you never know how it will turn out. I was looking for something with pomegranate juice in it. It is so healthy but does not taste great all by itself but sure Tastes great in this smoothie.

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie
Recipe by

8oz pomegranate juice
1/2 C frozen blueberries
1/2 C roughly chopped strawberries (3-4 berries)
1 orange, peeled
 1 C crushed ice
optional: honey

Place all ingredients into a blender in the order listed.  Process until smooth.  If it's too tart for your liking, add a drizzle of honey!

POM Wonderful Juice: POM Wonderful is well known for its anti-oxidants. POM Wonderful has more naturally occurring antioxidants than just about anything. In addition to being an antioxidant super power, POM juice is clinically proven to improve both cardiovascular and prostate health.

Blueberries: Blueberries are another antioxidant super power. In addition to that, they're high in vitamin C and E and science supports that they are beneficial for anti-aging, especially with memory skills and motor function. Plus they are super cute and they taste good :) Here's some great blueberry facts.

Oranges: Just one orange provides over 100% of your daily vitamin C needs, helping boost your immune system and fight off nasty things like colds. They are also a great source of fiber and help prevent cardiovascular disease. Don't believe me? See here.

Strawberries: one cup of strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange. They're also rich in antioxidants and have tons of other beneficial phytonutrients.

This smoothie isn't just delicious, it's great for your health.
