Why I Love This Recipe

Pomegranate Juice – a National Academy of Sciences study showed that pomegranate juice reduces cholesterol plaque buildup and increases nitric oxide production (nitric oxide helps reduce arterial plaque), making it a perfect cholesterol lowering food. It’s also been shown to improve fertility. Try these recipes:

Recently, the PR team from Tropical Smoothie Café sent me two recipes from their new ‘supercharged’ smoothie line to share with my readers! These smoothies contain antioxidant-packed fruits such as pomegranates, goji berries, and acai berries. I included two smoothie recipes below and my thoughts on each.


Ingredients You'll Need

Pomegranate Plunge

1 cup pomegranate arils
1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
2 tablespoon turbinado sugar
3/4 cup water
1 ripe banana
4-5 strawberries, hulled


Directions

I made the Pomegranate Plunge last night and decided to leave out the sugar. To me, it was plenty sweet already. But if you like a sweeter taste, turbinado sugar is a less-processed and healthier version of regular white sugar.
