Ingredients + Notes
- Banana: Naturally sweet, bananas are always a great base for a fruit smoothie. I always recommend using frozen banana for an extra creamy smoothie.
- Pomegranate: Fresh or frozen, pomegranate delivers on vitamin C and loads of antioxidants.
- Strawberries: Strawberries add that extra hit of sweetness while treating you to more vitamins and minerals. If you don’t have strawberries, you can use fresh blueberries instead. Or mix them both in together! Yum!
- Oat Milk: Oat milk gives that creamy flavor and feeling without dairy products. Alternatively, you could use your favorite plant milk that you have on hand, such as soy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk.
1. Place all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend for about 60 seconds.
2. Pour the smoothie into glasses.
3. Serve with sliced strawberries or pomegranate arils sprinkled on top.
While the natural flavors in this recipe all play well together, you can absolutely add to it and swap things around. While adding to the smoothie will change its flavor, you can add toppings instead.
- Berries: This recipe calls for strawberries which is a great combo because it makes it sweeter. It you want to lean into the sour, then raspberries could be a good option for you. Alternatively, using whatever berries you might have on hand is always easiest. (I have to say a blueberry pomegranate smoothie is delicious!)
- Vegan Greek Yogurt: Talk about adding to the creamy texture of this fresh fruit smoothie.
- Greens: Adding fresh greens like spinach, kale, collards, or swiss chard will take this delicious drink into a green smoothie recipe. Do keep in mind that it will alter the beautiful vibrant pink color.
- Nut Butters & Seed Butters: Different kinds of nut butter like peanut butter, cashew butter, and almond butter would taste delicious drizzled over this
- Seeds: Chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, would all be great toppings to this smoothie!
If you have any smoothie left over, put it in an airtight mason jar. It’s best to consume this immediately, but if you simply can’t finish it up, the leftovers will be good in the fridge for 12-24 hours.
Pomegranate mixes well with grapefruit, mango, pineapple, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, and watermelon.
Absolutely! If you’d prefer a different texture though, you can blend them separately, strain them with a cheesecloth, and then mix them with the remaining ingredients.
