Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

As part of my goal to eat healthier, I am experimenting with new smoothie recipes.  The first two I created use some of my favorite fall fruits, pomegranate and persimmon.  You can see the recipe for my Persimmon Orange Smoothie here

One key ingredient in all of my smoothies is Stonyfield Organic Smooth & Creamy Lowfat Plain Yogurt.  It's organic, certified gluten free, and full of good probiotics. 

I bought kale for the first time in my life after enjoying it in a smoothie at Skyebird in the East End Market. 

I decided to purchase organic frozen fruit for my smoothie experiments. 

Lucky for me, Costco has been stocking pomegranate for a great price and I don't have to do any work. 

My favorite part of this smoothie was the pomegranate garnish.  It gave it such a nice crunch and a great burst of flavor in every sip.  I kept adding more as I drank my smoothie. 

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie


1 C frozen blueberries
1 C orange juice
1/2 C kale (leaves pulled off the stem)
1/2 C plain lowfat yogurt
1/2 banana
pomegranate for garnish


Blend the blueberries, orange juice, kale, yogurt, and banana together until smooth.  Garnish with pomegranate.
