Berry, Banana & Pomegranate Smoothie

Tested & Perfected Recipes

smoothie

This fruit-packed smoothie is a little sweet, a little tart and a whole lot of healthy. Frozen fruit and low fat Greek yogurt make it extra thick and creamy — a treat! Make it for breakfast and you’ll feel satisfied until lunchtime.

ingredients

Five simple ingredients is all you’ll need. As you can see, I buy bagged frozen berries. These are a great freezer staple because they keep for months on end, and are cheaper and more convenient than fresh berries. You can’t buy frozen bananas, so it’s a good idea to keep a stash of peeled ripe bananas in the freezer so you can make a smoothie whenever the mood strikes you.

about-to-blend

Simply combine all of the ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth. Depending on the type of blender you have and how powerful it is, you may need to stop and stir every once in a while to help it along.

That’s all there is to it. Pour into glasses and enjoy!

  • Is there a good way to cut back on the sugar?

    • Hi Deborah, You can definitely omit the honey, or just add it to taste. Hope that helps!

  • Fantastic recipe! Adding some ice cubes and about a 1/4 cup more pomegranate juice really gives the flavor a boost, but other than that, they were some great guidelines!

  • So good! My husband and I usually double the recipe and split three ways with our teenage son. I have found that the honey is not necessary as the berries and banana are sweet enough, but that is just a personal preference. This is also a great basic starter recipe – the possible combinations of fruit and juices are infinite as long as you keep the proportions the same.

  • Is it possible to use the actual pomegranate seeds instead of the juice? And if so, what would you recommend for a measurement?

    • Unless you have a really strong blender, I wouldn’t recommend it. I think the texture would be too seedy/grainy. Sorry!

  • Wonderful smoothie recipe,

    As a side note it is rally hard to see the site due to all the banner ads. I already subscribe to your weekly emails so I don’t need to see that one. The LED lightbulb as is obnoxious. You close it and it keeps opening. I finally printed a hard copy of the recipe just so I could see the ingredients. Ads on the side are fine.

  • Thanks for the great smoothie recipe! I’ve always wanted to make a smoothie but never really knew how to make one…. I used cranberry juice instead of pomegranate juice and it was still delicious!
