Antioxident Pomegranate Smoothie

Antioxident Pomegranate Smoothie

1 large pomegranate, deseeded
1 medium banana
6-8 pieces frozen mango (Mango is not in season at the moment, so I would recommend frozen!)
3-4 pieces fresh or frozen strawberries
1/2 – 1 cup rice milk
1. Remove seeds from pomegranate by opening and scooping out the seeds.
2. Blend all ingredients until smooth. Add more rice milk to desired consistency.
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!?!

Note: Super juicy and messy…don’t wear your favorite white blouse while doing this! It will turn pink!

I am entering this recipe into a contest hosted by POM Wonderful Pomegranate. If you have a favorite dish, beverage or dessert that uses pomegranates, be sure to enter your recipe here.

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!
