Recipe: Berry Pomegranate Smoothie

Craft & Design Food & Beverage

In the Kitchen

By Katie Goodman
I love smoothies for breakfast or afternoon snacks in the summer. They’re cool and full of great fruity flavors. While I definitely enjoy going to the smoothie shop occasionally (they do have a super duper blender that purees much better than mine), it does get expensive, and smoothies are really simple to make at home.
This is my take on a smoothie that our local smoothie shop makes. Packed with pomegranate juice and berries, it’s definitely a healthy and refreshing treat. Greek yogurt adds a little bit of protein. If you’d like, add a half a banana as well, but it doesn’t really need it.

Step 3: Garnish with additional berries and a mint leaf for a pretty presentation.
You can use this ratio as a guide to creating other smoothies: 1 cup fruit, 2/3 cup liquid, and 1/3 cup yogurt or sorbet.
