Valentine’s day or just showing some affection in general for your loved one is so much more than heart shaped chocolate (although very delicious if I say so myself). When I visited Greece last year I discovered that the pomegranate is a symbol of love. This goes all the way back to ancient Greece times. This inspired me to make this pomegranate smoothie.
It seems that the pomegranate is one of the world’s most ancient foods and so beautiful bursting with its ruby-red jewel like seeds.
For this pomegranate smoothie you only have to throw in a few ingredients in your blender. It’s a simple, yet delicious smoothie.
Pomegranate contains quite a few health benefits. It contains antioxidants and it is great for the skin.
If you’re using almond milk for this smoothie recipe make sure you check the ingredients on the store bought versions (many brands contain added sugar). Alternately, you can make your own almond milk.
The smoothie with pomegranate is a delicious twist on your regular smoothie and jam-packed with antioxidants.
- 1 ½ cup almond milk or coconut milk
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 cup (frozen) pomegranate seeds (I used the seeds of 1,5 pomegranate)
- 1 date
- Add the almond milk, date, pomegranate seeds, and bananas to your blender. Blend until the smoothie is smooth and the pomegranate seeds are fully blended.
