Berry Pomegranate Smoothie Bowl

A beautiful and healthy way to start your day.

Pomegranate Basics

  • Depending on the variety and degree of ripeness, pomegranates can be sweet, slightly sour or very sharp – similar to tart cherries. 
  • Pomegranate seeds (or arils) get their vibrant red hue from polyphenols – micronutrients with powerful antioxidant properties. 
  • The arils are easy to extract. Simply cut off the top of the fruit, then cut into segments (as you would for an orange) and gently pop the seeds from the white pith.

Smoothie Bowl

  • ½ cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup any berry, such as blueberries
  • 1 tbs yogurt
  • 1 tbs nut butter 

Optional Toppings

  • Oats or muesli
  • Fresh berries
  • Nuts or seeds
  • Coconut flakes
  • Cocoa nibs
  • Pomegranate arils
  1. Simple no-fuss juicing method: Place the arils in a Ziploc bag. Remove the air and seal the bag. 
  2. Gently smash the seeds with a rolling pin. 
  3. Once all the arils are crushed, cut a tiny hole in the corner of the Ziploc bag. 
  4. Gently squeeze the juice out of the bag into a cup or jug. 
  5. Place the juice and the other smoothie ingredients in a blender. 
  6. If using frozen banana or berries, add a splash of milk to loosen the mixture. Blend until smooth.
  7. Pour smoothie into a shallow bowl and add toppings.
