Antioxidant Berry Blast

Healthy Breakfast Smoothies - Antioxidant Blend

Well I was making a Costco run the other day cause I was all out of frozen strawberries for my healthy breakfast smoothies and much to my dismay so was Costco! Was totally bummed but then this bag of mixed berries caught my eye, ‘Organic Antioxidant Blend. Its full of antioxidant rich berries such as strawberries, blueberries, cherries, raspberries (without the annoying seeds) and pomegranate. So I picked it up to give it a try and it has become one of my favorite smoothie mixes.

  • 1 1/2 Cups of Antioxidant Blend
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Cup of Goodbelly Blueberry Acai
  • any other little additives (I put in a packet of Amazing Grass )

Thats it! Tastes awesome and very healthy. Want another great taste switch the Goodbelly Blueberry with the Goodbelly Mango. Mmmmmm love that one

Pomegranate Blueberry Banana Green Smoothie

pomegranate_seedsThis recipe is sort of a guest post as it comes from Shelley Alexander of A Harmony Healing, a website dedicated to helping you live a more healthy and holistic life.

We have discussed the benefits of pomegranates before with our Pom Berry Smoothie with Pom Juice. This one goes a bit more organic and uses the actual pomegranate seeds! Coupled with bananas, blueberries and spinach this makes a very healthy and energetic smoothie to start your day with!

Pomegranate Blueberry Banana Green Energy Smoothie

  • 3 cups unsweetened almond milk (or rice!)
  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 banana- chopped into pieces and frozen
  • 2–3 cups organic baby spinach
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Your favorite natural sweetener to taste

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Makes about 2 servings.

Here is a helpful tip for removing pomegranate seeds from Shelly

Cut pomegranate in half. Place a bowl in front of you and hold the cut side of the pomegranate half down. Hit the back of the pomegranate half with a large spoon until seeds fall out into the bowl. Discard the white pith and outer skin.

Hope you enjoy this recipe and visit A Harmony Healing for some more healthy and tasty recipes!

Yummy Pomegranate Smoothies

Another refreshing recipe using one of my favorite juices, pomegranate, and the antioxidant power of blueberries! Of course a banana for creaminess, and a bit of yogurt for added protein. This makes a very tasty way to start your day or a refreshing way to cool off in the afternoon.

  • 1 12 oz. pkg of frozen unsweetend bluberries
  • 1 large banana sliced
  • 1 cup Pom pure pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1 cup greek yogurt, plain.

Place it all in the blender and blend away! Remember liquids and soft items first, frozen items last (smaller of these first)! You may need to add a bit of water to get things moving if it is to thick for you. Makes 3-4 servings

Pom-Berry Breakfast Smoothie

POM Wonderful Pomegranate JuiceI was wandering around costco the other day and ran across this big bottle of POM pomegranate juice and thought, hmmm that would be good in a smoothie. Pomegranate juice is packed with antioxidants, in fact more than any other juice. Studies have shown that pomegranate juice may help prevent hardening of the arteries as well as protect you from heart disease, cholesterol and even stress! The great thing about POM is its 100% pomegranate juice, nothing else, so makes a great healthy and natural smoothies additive. This is what I threw together the other day and in fact have had it a couple times since its so good.

1 1/2 Cup POM wonderful juice
1 Banana
1 Cup frozen strawberries
1/2 Cup frozen cranberries
1/2 Cup frozen raspberries
1 Tablespoon rice vanilla protein powder (optional)

Mix in blender for 30-60 seconds till smooth. Makes about 2 large glasses of a delicious tangy berry smoothie
