Raspberry Pomegranate Smoothie | Vegan | Raw | G-free



Here's a quick and easy recipe for a pick-me-up smoothie with tons of health benefits:
  • seeds and juice from 1 pomegranate
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • juice of 1 fresh orange
  • raw honey (or other sweetener) to taste
Swirl everything together in the blender until smooth.

Renown as a "super-food" pomegranates have a long list of health benefits, including:
  • Polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that aid in heart health and anti-cancer benefits
  • These polyphenols may also help prevent plaque buildup in arteries 
  • The seeds have more antioxidant power than cranberry juice or green tea
  • Lowered blood pressure and delay the oxidation of LDL cholesterol in patients with coronary heart disease
  • Improved blood flow
  • May slow the progression of prostate cancer
  • An excellent source of fibre, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium
  • One pomegranate supplies one-quarter of a day’s worth of folate (a B vitamin needed to synthesize and repair DNA) and one-third of your daily vitamin C
  • One medium pomegranate contains: 3.5 grams fiber, 9 milligrams vitamin C, 14 micrograms vitamin K and 205 milligrams potassium, as well as being an excellent source of polyphenols.
So go ahead and add a little pom to your next smoothie.
