Why is this a smoothie you should try? It packs a wealth of healthy antioxidants and nutrients with incredibe deliciousness. Drinking fruit smoothies as a post-workout breakfast is what I look forward to during the week – it’s my guilty pleasure. This POMegranate smoothie is like drinking a glass of red wine and a portion of your favorite dessert all wrapped up in one – but these are the calories you want. This drink warms my heart and it makes my soul smile – that’s Heavenly!
For this smoothie, I wanted to incorporate pomegranate juice which contains higher levels of antioxidants than most other fruit juices. [I love to use the juice from fresh pomegranates during the September to February months when they are in season.] For all of my followers who cannot use dairy products in smoothies, this is a great recipe that may work for you – the pomegranate juice coupled with the creamy texture of avocado gives it the thickness a quality smoothie demands. To bring this powerful drink to life, I added fresh frozen organic blueberries, fresh pineapple chunks, fresh mint, fresh ginger, fresh lime juice, cardamom and peanut butter for protein.
I hope you enjoy sipping on this delicious and healthy smoothie as much as I do. I welcome your feedback, comment or question. Use the reply feature at the bottom of the recipe or use the contact page. Thanks for stopping by.

POMegranate and Fruit Smoothie
- 1/2 cup pomegranate Juice (I use the Pom Wonderful Brand)
- 1/2 cup fresh frozen organic blueberries
- 1 cup fresh pineapples chunks
- 1/2 of a small haas avocado (1/4 of a larger one)
- 1 small thin slice of fresh ginger peeled and chopped
- 4 small fresh mint leaves
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1/2 of a lime juiced
- 1 cup crushed ice
Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend until desired smoothie texture.
Pour in your favorite glass, sip and enjoy.
For this recipe you can substitute, almond butter or use some fresh walnuts. I love to use peanuts - it's great for my skin. You can also use a cup of the blueberries and 1/2 cup pineapple - depending on which taste you like better. Either way it is great.
