pomegranate smoothie recipe

I have extracted the pomegranate juice first and then blended with almond milk. The almond milk which I used was flavored with cocoa, hence the light chocolate color of the smoothie. Though even plain almond milk can be used.

Usually most fruit smoothies I make are without dairy milk. Milk along with milk products and certain fruits are an incompatible combination according to ayurveda. It can cause indigestion, bloating and sluggishness of the digestive system.

Hence I make Milkshakes or smoothies with almond milk or coconut milk instead of dairy milk. Even for everyday recipes like Apple milkshake or Banana milkshake i avoid using dairy milk.

In the pomegranate smoothie recipe I have extracted the Pomegranate juice. if you do not extract the juice and blend the pomegranate arils directly, then the smoothie will have gritty sand like consistency. If you have ready pomegranate juice, then you can add 1 cup of it.

Since summers have arrived, I will be sharing some more juices and smoothie recipes. Both juices and smoothies keep the body hydrated during summers and also supply it with essential nutrients. One also feels refreshed after having any fresh fruit juice.

This smoothie recipe serves 1 tall glass or 2 small glasses. You can easily double or triple the recipe.
