Who doesn't love pomegranate? It's sweet. It's refreshing. It's fun to eat. And its loaded with health promoting nutrients. Pomegranates boast inflammation fighting flavanols which can help prevent and treat arthritis and polyphenols which can improve cardiovascular health by lowering blood pressure and reducing plaque in the carotid arteries. They even stimulate probiotic bacteria in your gut.
It's one of my favorite fruits because it even looks festive and is so strongly associated with the holiday season. So naturally, I created this special holiday pomegranate smoothie. I hope you love it!
