Pomegranate Smoothie Skinny Shake

My skinny shake recipe makes a scrumptious pomegranate smoothie, to enjoy once a day, mid-morning. If you love smoothies, you’ll flip for the strawberry and pomegranate flavors here. They are fruity, bright and insanely delicious!!

If you love fruit flavored drinks but you don’t need anything particularly healthy, make a strawberry banana smoothie instead!

Other drink recipes that are sure to become family favorites are blueberry banana smoothies and banana orange smoothies.

What’s a Skinny Shake?

So, a few years ago on the Dr. Oz show, a 7-Day crash diet was featured that really piqued my interest.  Dr. Joel Fuhrman was the guest.

He discussed many ways to kick start fat burning in your body, and who doesn’t want that?! One of my favorite parts of Dr. Fuhrman’s plan is this detoxifying drink, which he calls a “Skinny Shake”.

Ingredient Notes

This pomegranate smoothie doesn’t get any simpler to make. It’s just pure, healthy fresh fruit and water!

  • Pomegranates are classified as a superfruit because of its antioxidant properties, and they’re full of vitamins and nutrients.
  • Strawberries, as well as other berries, are lower in carbs, so they don’t spike blood sugar like other high sugar fruits can.

Needless to say, this is my favorite healthy drink. My entire family loves it, and it’s packed with flavor and it’s really refreshing. A skinny shake smoothie makes the perfect mid morning pick me up.

We try to balance eating healthy, and little treats like this one certainly help.

A healthy breakfast and a fat burning morning snack sure make the occasional treat a lot easier on the hips.

Tips for Making Your Pomegranate Smoothie

  • Be sure to layer the ingredients in the blender.
  • Scrape the sides down as often as necessary.
  • Use a high powered blender for best results.
  • If you have a standard blender and not a high speed model, try using 1/4 fresh strawberries and 3/4 frozen. This will help make the blending easier.
  • For a super thick shake-like consistency, add a few ice cubes to the blender.

  1. My husband will want this for breakfast – soon! Printed and can't wait to give it a try! Happy New Year Donna.

    1. Skip the pomegranate juice and substitute actual pomegranate kernels or blueberries. Also, you should be able to find unsweetened pomegranate juice or unsweetened cranberry juice in a local health market.

  2. I put the recipe into my go meals app because I am diabetic and for the whole recipe it looks like 324 cal., 78g carbs, 4g protein, and 0 fat. It says the recipe is 2 serving so I hope that gives you all an idea. I am going to be trying this �� Thank you for the recipe. Love to all <3

  3. I put this into my go meals. I am diabetic. 324 calories, 78g carbs, 4g protein, and 0 fat. This is for the whole recipe which is 2 servings. I hope this helps. I will be trying this and thanks for the recipe. (Strawberry and pomegranate)

  4. Well I had my husband go out and buy the ingredients to make this smoothie and I am not sure it is for diabetics. So for the full recipe with the ingredients I got it is 500 calories, 138g carbs, 0 fat, and 3g protein. Now she did say that the recipe was two servings so it would break down to 250 calories, 69g carbs, 0 fat and 1.5 protein. Still for diabetics (at least for me) I am restricted to 45g of carbs. I guess if you are just watching your calorie intake and not your carbs this doesn't seem bad at all. I just know I will have to reduce my quantity even more to be able to drink it, but I am still going to give it a try. Love to all and I hope this helps. xoxo ~A

  5. I used the strawberries and added some Greek yoghurt to thicken because I used coconut water instead of the juice.

  6. I looked this recipe up on the Dr. Oz site and this is not the original recipe. The original recipe is:
    1 cup ice
    4 oz pomegranate juice
    1 cup frozen strawberries
    Squeeze of lemon

  7. I tried this pomegranate juice recipe and this tastes just awesome. I recommend everyone to try this recipe they will love this recipe.
    Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  8. Since many of my husband's final classes involve tasting alcohol or visiting restaurants,  Best 3 day detox cleanse

  9. This looks awesome!!! I've been looking for a smoothie recipe for my son whobis allergic to dairy, bananas, nuts (including nut milk) and soy.
