POM Wonderful Smoothie

After going through the ringer this winter with cold and flue season nothing helps boosts your immune system back up than a antioxidant and vitamin C packed smoothie! The health benefits of blueberries and pomegranate are almost mind blowing:

Blueberries

  • Good source of vitamin K
  • Contain vitamin C, fiber, manganese and other antioxidants (notably anthocyanins)
  • Contains high levels of antioxidants
  • Some nutritionists believe that if you make only one change to your diet, it should be to add blueberries.

Pomegranates

  • Helps Fight Cancer.
  • Decreases Hypertension.
  • Boosts Heart Health.
  • Relieves Osteoarthritis.
  • Improves Memory.
  • Provides Lots of Antioxidants.
  • Fights Inflammation.

 

I actually threw this together with the ingredients I had in my kitchen and it’s probably one of THE BEST smoothies I’ve had in awhile ~ I surprise myself sometimes with the things that I can whip up! Doesn’t happen often!

 

Ingredients:

Handful of blueberries

i c of POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice

1 c of yogurt ( I used Oikos Vanilla yogurt)

1 orange freshly squeezed

1/2 lemon freshly squeezed

 

Blend and oh-my-goodness-gracious ENJOY!
