This 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.
