Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

Blueberry-POM Smoothie

1 container light/fat free vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup POM juice
1 cup ice
1 cup frozen blueberries

1/4 cup Wheat germ*
Mix together in blender and enjoy!
I love love love wheat germ.it is a great source of fiber, folic acid and vitamin E and lends a yummy nutty taste.

Thanks to the POM folks for sending me a big ol case of POM juice. I love the juice and Pomegranates. However getting the arils out of the Pomegranate is a royal pain in the ass and for some reason when I do, my fingers turn green! HUH? Does this happen to anyone else? Bizarre. If you are unaware of off the super dupper health benefits of Pomegranates, then click here and read all about them.

    P.S. I’ve seen some of the Food Network chefs tap the pom things out by hitting the rind with a spoon and they just fall out. No green fingers there!

    I have one bottle of that POM left and you have given me inspiration with your gorgeous creation!

  20. 20

    Gosh that sounds so healthy and the color is amazing!

    After all the years on this earth, I finally learned how to eat an unprepared pom this year from my sister in law. My fingers turned bright red but not green. This sounds (insert any awesome word here). I usually add some flax seed to my smoothies but wheat germ – of course! That’s getting added to this weeks shopping list. Thanks.

    Sorry that I’ve been an absent commenter; I just finished up my law school exams and am finally getting around to my google reader. This treat looks fabulous! I love all the anti-oxidant goodness going on here. YUM!

    Hi Housewife…

    Foodie here in Land O’Lakes just up the road from you. Just discovered your blog and am enjoying it.

    Here’s another POM recipe that I think you’ll enjoy: http://www.tasteasyougo.com/2009/04/fiery-pomegranate-sauce.html

    Looking forward to reading more of your stuff.

    I’m a pretty accomplished cook but I just don’t have anything interesting to say for a blog and my photo skills are lacking :)

    Cheers!
