Whether you enjoy smoothies for breakfast or the occasional afternoon treat, the joy is pretty easy to grasp. Why else would smoothie and juice bars exist and be able to charge crazy mark-ups for blends that largely consist of fruit, juice, and ice? 😉

Fortunately, smoothies are one of the most obviously accessible treats to make yourself at home. As long as you have a decent blender, you can make your own on demand, which is way more economical, and gives you total control over the ingredients, taste, and consistency.

Strawberry and pomegranate are a match made in smoothie heaven, so I know you’ll adore this simple blend as much as we do. It gets an enthusiastic two thumbs-up from every taste-tester!

Why you’ll love this smoothie

  • Creamy yet dairy-free
  • Rich in antioxidants and vitamin C
  • Simple, easy-to-find ingredients
  • No added sugar or sweeteners
  • All fruit = very kid-friendly

Both strawberries and pomegranate juice are very high in vitamin C and antioxidants, in addition to other vitamins and minerals. As an added bonus to those of us just trying to make good choices, these fruits have plenty of all-natural sweetness, meaning there’s no need for any extra sugar to make this smoothie delicious.

Can I use fresh fruit?

Using frozen strawberries and banana is important to achieve the creamy, frosty effect without adding yogurt or ice. In a pinch, one fruit or the other can be fresh, just be prepared for the smoothie to be a bit thinner.

Optional add-ins

For added nutrition, try adding one or two teaspoons of fiber-rich chia seeds. You can also throw in a small handful of spinach leaves; it will slightly alter the color, but if your blender is high-powered enough, they will break down and not really change the consistency.

Of course you can swap the pomegranate for another type of juice, and swap the water with almond or any other type of milk for an even more creamy consistency; it will be almost like a milkshake!
