This is a delicious magenta colored smoothie that I made up tonight w/ ingredients I had on hand. It turned out quite delicious so I figured I would try sharing. I didn't measure ingredients when mixing so I have estimated them, but I think they are fairly close and I am sure can be played w/ to meet personal tastes. Its also a non-dairy drink which is a bonus! And its very nutritious. Recipe Zaar tries recognizing the pomegranate blueberry juice as just bluberry juice and leaves it out of the nutrition info, but that is where many of the health benefits are.
- 1⁄2 large ripe banana
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 cup pomegranate-blueberry juice (Tropicana Pure)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄8 teaspoon coconut extract
- Blend all ingredients in blender on high, until smooth.
- Push mixture through sieve to remove most of the seeds.
Wonderful! I skipped the sugar, and since I had only pomegranate juice, added a couple handfuls of blueberries. It tasted wonderful even without sieving! Of course, then I had raspberry seeds stuck in my teeth ;-)
YUM! I enjoyed this for breakfast. Quick and easy. I did skip the sugar and extract. Plenty of goodness that you really don`t need it. If I make this for a cocktail I will add coconut rum for a nice kick. Thanks!
