Healthy Pomegranate Smoothie |

We love smoothies and it’s a great way to eat fruit that you might not normally just pick up and eat.  Like pomegranates!  Don’t be scared of them!  I show you how to cut and use pomegranates here.

Antioxidant Pomegranate Smoothie

Yield – 4 – 1/2 cup servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 0 minutes


  • 1 large pomegranate, deseeded
  • 1 medium banana
  • 6-8 pieces fresh or frozen mango
  • 3-4 pieces fresh or frozen strawberries

Here are some photos of my smoothie making effort this morning! Anyone know how to get rid of the seeds in the smoothie??? I thought they would get blended, but they didn’t. My smoothie was too thick to strain. Any ideas would be helpful!?

HI there, I know that what works well when taking the seeds out of the pomegranite is having the water icy cold. For some reason it works better than luke warm water. Sounds like a good recipe

pomegranate tip: skip taking out all the seeds if all you want is the juice. cut the fruit in half and juice it like you would an orange. takes way less time too.

I’ve been trying to teach my teenage girls to eat healthy. I had heard about the the powerful antioxidants and nutrients that pomegranates contain so we tried one. They are only in our grocery store a couple of months out of the year, but when they are we buy several. The girls eat the seeds like nuts. But they are a little messier!

@Tonya Conley,

I’m looking forward to “pomegranate season” too! Shouldn’t be too much longer before they are in stores!
