What benefits are in pomegranate?
Pomegranate smoothie or juice is jam packed with antioxidants but it also happens to be delicious and adds just the right tart-sweet component to this smoothie. Just make sure you pick up a brand that is pure pomegranate juice, not a mixture that contains a bunch of sugar. I used fresh pomegranate arils but feel free to use also ready-made juice if you can’t find some or it is not the season.
