Pomegranate Smoothie

Yields2 ServingsPrep Time12 minsTotal Time12 mins

While Pomegranates do not grow near me, I always look forward to late autumn and early winter when they are available in stores locally. Pomegranates are loaded with beneficial nutrients . The punicic acid found in them are shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Health benefits aside, they taste so delicious. A good pomegranate should feel heavy and its skin should be firm and taught.

 1 Pomegranate
 1 Orange, Peeled, quartered and any seeds removed
 2 Scoops Unflavoured Collagen Protein
 3 Dates, soaked in hot water for 5 minutes, then pitted
 ½ cup Non Dairy Milk or your choice
 ½ cup Plain Unsweetened Diary Free Yogurt
 1 1 inch piece of Ginger root, peeled and cut in half
 ½ tsp Red Beet Root Powder

Roll the pomegrante gently to loosen the seeds. Cut the fruit in half width wise and tear it open into halves. I prefer to do this over a bowl in the sink as it can get very messy. Hold each half over a bowl facing down and tap the skin with a wooden spoon. Squeeze it a little to release the seeds. Remove any white membrane that attaches to the seeds.


Place all of the ingredients in a high powered blender and whir until smooth, approximatley 2 minutes. This makes 2 servings so you can place one serving in the fridge for the next day.
