Pomegranate and Banana Green Smoothie

Posted by on Nov 25, 2013 in Recipes | 2 comments

One thing I love about this time of year is pomegranates! I first fell in love with pomegranates when I spent time in the Caucasus where they are both a staple part of the cuisine and the culture.  In Armenia, for example, pomegranates symbolize good luck and fertility and they feature in Armenian art, crafts and literature. I even picked up some beautiful pomegranate silver earrings there!  

This green smoothie recipe combines pomegranate arils, banana, kale and hemp protein to make a superfood-packed, filling and healthful breakfast. It’s delicious!
