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!

    Sounds yummy! I happen to have all the ingredients for this right now, sounds like breakfast tomorrow! :)

    Another way to open a pomegranate: cut it in half, then place it in a big bowl full of water. Now just break it apart in your hands – the water keeps the juice from squirting on you, and the inedible bits naturally float to the top to separate the seeds from the inedible white fruit. :)
