Pomegranate Blueberry Green Energy Smoothie is a fantastic way to start your day with energy and lots of healing foods! Green energy smoothies taste just like fruit smoothies but the color is green. the exception to this green color is when you use dark colored berries. These smoothies are the easiest way to get lots of fresh fruits and vegetables into your daily diet!
I have written a post about all the benefits of drinking green smoothies which you can check out once you try this recipe.
I promise that once you start drinking green smoothies everyday you will love the taste and the way they make you feel.
This tasty smoothie features wild blueberries, banana, baby spinach, and pomegranate seeds or juice in one delicious blend.
I used frozen chopped banana and frozen wild blueberries to make the smoothie cold and creamy along with almond milk. I used organic stevia for the sweetener but you can leave it out if the smoothie is sweet enough for your taste.
Blueberries are “super berries” because blueberries are full of fiber, polyphenols, antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids, iron, potassium, and magnesium. Blueberries also contain over 25 phytochemicals, which protect the body from free radicals.
Pomegranate Seeds or Juice
Pomegranate seeds and it’s juice contribute a tart and sweet bite along with key antioxidants, vitamin C, B vitamins, potassium, and fiber.
The banana adds vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, fiber, and great sweetness to the smoothie.
Spinach is a mild leafy green that is great for someone who is new to drinking green smoothies since you cannot taste the spinach at all. Spinach is a wonderful source of antioxidants, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin K, calcium, chlorophyll, and fiber. Spinach is also rich in iron which promotes healthy red blood cells and keeps our immune system strong.
By combining the powerful wild blueberries, pomegranate seeds, banana, and spinach, you get a smoothie that can help protect you against a wide range of degenerative diseases.

HELPFUL TIP FOR REMOVING POMEGRANATE SEEDS

Hit the back of the pomegranate half with a large spoon until seeds fall out into the bowl.
