Happy Monday everyone. We had a beautiful weekend, hope you did too! Today we feature a fabulous smoothie to kick your week off right!!!
It is autumn and the proof is in the pomegranates. They are everywhere! I love them and have been thinking of how many ways I can use them. There is an amazing sale on them this week, so we are stocking up. Did you know a pomegranate will last up to 2 months in the refrigerator and up to a month on the counter? Also that you can remove the arils (seeds and the surrounding water-laden pulp) and freeze them? I can’t tell you all the ways that I can think of using these. Smoothies, cocktails, sauces, salad dressings, pies, savory dishes…
AboutPomegranate.com provided these wonderful facts; pomegranate is not only delicious but one of the most nutritious fruits to eat. It is rich in vitamin C, vitamin B5, potassium and also polyphenols, a potent form of antioxidants. It is also considered one of the high-fiber fruits. A ½ cup of pomegranate arils contains only 80 calories, but is packed with 5g of fiber and 180mg of potassium.
Today we are sharing our favorite smoothie this season (although I am sure there are plenty more to come) Pomegranate Banana Smoothie. As Chad put it: its perfect. Don’t change a thing! I hope you enjoy it, it got rave reviews from all 3 of us. Em drank almost a whole glass on her own!!!
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
