Ever since Kara and I first tried a pomegranate we’ve been totally hooked and we’ve since tried it sweet, savory and now healthy. They’re tart and weird (in a good way) and super healthy. We decided that incorporating pomegranate into a smoothie would be perfect for right after the new year as pomegranates are readily available and light and healthy is in and unhealthy is out. I’m sure we’ll be back to sugary sweets and pasta in no time though, don’t worry!
We didn’t have our blender handy so we just dumped all the ingredients into a large measuring cup and used our immersion blender. Worked like a charm and we used…maybe 2 dishes. Kara doesn’t like banana so I made a special smoothe for her without banana and that one turned out really yummy too. Whenever I make smoothies I always think to myself that I need to make them more often because they are refreshing and filling. I think healthy smoothies will be a goal for me in 2013.
Also…my adorable dog made herself comfortable right in Cliff’s shot so we went with it. I think it adds something special to the picture. She’s so cute I can’t even take it.
Servings: 2 smoothies
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup plain greek yogurt (we used nonfat)
½ (to 1) cup 100% pomegranate juice
Put all the ingredients into a large measuring cup (with spout) or blender. If you have a Magic Bullet that will work good too. Blend until combined and smooth. Pour into cups and serve immediately.
