Pomegranate and Red Beet Smoothie


Move over green smoothie! Sip this fuchsia blended beverage and know you're getting a good dose of B vitamins, folate, manganese, potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, antioxidants (three different types of polyphenols) and more. Give it a whirl!

And yes, it really is THAT pink ... Pepto-Bismol pink. My kiddos think this smoothie is the coolest!

Pomegranate & Red Beet Smoothie
Serves: 2-4

In a high-powered blender, blend until super smooth:

1/2 cup POM Wonderful® 100% PURE POMEGRANATE JUICE
1 cup NON-DAIRY MILK (how to make Almond Milk)
1/4-1/2 of a medium steamed and peeled RED BEET (how to steam a beet)
One generous handful of frozen STRAWBERRIES
One small handful of raw WALNUTS
20 drops SweetLeaf® Vanilla Crème LIQUID STEVIA
1 teaspoon gluten-free VANILLA EXTRACT
Sweeten to taste, if needed, with runny HONEY or sweetener of choice

Add and blend until smooth:


1/2 cup ICE

Cheers!

Yum Lexie, I love the addition of POM! I recently fell in love with beet smoothies. Beets + bananas = awesomeness.

Blushing beets! Thanks for your sweet words :) I am so glad you tried it! Amazing how any earthy taste just gets masked by the other ingredients. Just read your post on it (everyone check out this great site tiny-morsels.blogspot.com)! From your profile, we have a lot in common ... meat and potatoes husbands, picky 4-year olds and we're both graphic designers. Love your blog, too. And a big thank you for posting that zucchini salad recipe. We get our next load of produce tomorrow and I am still drowning in last weeks! Lots of zukes!
