This pomegranate creamsicle smoothie contains more antioxidants than green tea and features some of the best ingredients for immunity and glowing skin! Oh – and it also tastes like a creamsicle, but 10x better – mainly because of the pomegranate and blueberry addition, which bring it up a whole other level!
Pomegranates contain tannins, which help prevent your skin from aging (in fact, many cosmetic skin care companies utilize tannins for their anti-aging effects!). They are also great for enhancing the immune system, along with the blueberries and oranges, which are renowned for their antioxidant and immune-boosting effects.
1 cup pomegranate seeds
1 large ripe, spotty banana (or 2 smaller)
1 cup orange, peeled & cubed
1 cup organic blueberries
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup almond milk (or homemade banana milk!)
Blend all of the above ingredients in a high-speed blender, such as the Vitamix, and enjoy!
I was wondering what to do with my leftover pomegranate – never thought to put it in a smoothie but it's delicious!
