Pomegranate Smoothie

Since the summer 2013 I have practically made smoothie every morning. In my smoothies I mostly use mango, bananas, oranges, pineapples, avocados, strawberries, blueberries etc.

On Friday there were pomegranates in the supermarket. I bought two. Long ago I bought one. I, back then, after trying to get the seeds out, found it messy and  threw it all into the garbage can. I had no idea how to properly get the seeds out. That was before the internet. Now it’s easy as you can find on the web just anything you need. I looked up how to seed a pomegranate and found many useful video clips and blogs. I used the instructions of how to seed the fruit from a clip by Rocking Robin’s on YouTube.

Cut the top off. Gently not to harm the seeds. Make 6-8 cuts not all the way to the bottom. Loosen the parts up little by little. Start knocking it with a wooden spoon to get the seeds out. I used just my fingers to pick them out as I didn’t want any of the white membrane into my bowl. For the smoothie yesterday I put the seeds into the blender and then used a strainer to get rid of all the tiny hard parts of the seeds. Then I poured the juice back and added frozen strawberries, bananas and Greek yogurt. Today I was lazy and used the tiny hard parts too. I have to say, in my opinion, it is much nicer without them.

    oh, looks so delicious! unfortunately i don’t even have any patience to make any smoothie, LOL!

    i’m so happy to see that you also make avocado smoothie. i’ve been trying to “sell” it to my husband, telling him that avocado is good as a sweet drink (back in Indonesia we make it as a juice, mix it a bit with condensed chocolate milk). but he thinks avocado is only good as salty food. hmph.

      Thank you 🙂 Why not make the avocado-banana-milk smoothie. In my opinion it’s the easiest and quickest one to make. After you advised to add condensed milk chocolate powder to it my husband likes the avocado smoothie which he before really disliked it.
