With the warm weather slowly approaching, we’re always looking for ways to cool down and get our bodies bathing suit ready by eating our fruits and veggies. With that in mind, smoothies are always a great option for a snack on-the-go and a great way to pack in extra servings of fruit we need to stay healthy.
Pomegranates seeds are jam packed with antioxidants, which may help prevent heart disease and cancer, and their sweet tart taste make it a perfect ingredient for a smoothie without having to add extra sugar. While fewer and fewer pomegranates are available in the market, we don’t have to kiss the pomegranate goodbye just yet. Especially when we always have pomegranate juice at our reach!
Try this Pomegranate Blueberry Banana Smoothie for an extra healthful boost in the morning or a sweet treat at the end of your day! For a vegan version, use soy yogurt instead.
