Oh how I miss my smoothies.
I haven't had a decent one since late summer. It's about time for one don't you think? So off to the market I went in search of some fresh fruit that I could use. Craving berries I found some fresh blackberries and proceeded to the check out pronto. I was going to make a Blackberry Pomegranate Smoothie.
I often keep some Pomegranate juice in the frig and this would be a great substitution for the milk. The rest is pretty much the same. I typically follow the same formula in my smoothies. Since I like them creamy I add yogurt and bananas, and ice to give it that frozen feel. Yum!
Try this, you'll love the flavors. Plus it's healthy for you and a great breakfast item, or for a snack. It's the new year, time to start some new healthy habits, and juices and smoothies fit right in.
