Pomegranate Blueberry Banana Smoothie

School is in full swing around my house and we are slowly falling into our new daily routine. Do you feel like you have found your groove yet?  It takes a while to find your groove that is for sure. Smoothies, like this Pomegranate Blueberry Banana Smoothie, are a really nice way to throw together a nutritious breakfast or snack on those busy days. If you are like me you are in and out of the car a lot during the day with carpooling the kids around. Smoothies to the rescue!

You can even prep small smoothie bags ahead of time with all of the ingredients in a medium freezer friendly ziplock bag and just add the milk and yogurt when you are ready to make the smoothie. It makes smoothie making a snap–just pull a smoothie pack out of the freezer, add the milk and yogurt, blend and enjoy!

We should talk for a minute about today’s Pomegranate Blueberry Banana Smoothie. It is a powerhouse. It is filled with antioxidants, calcium, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins. If you are looking for a delicious smoothie to add to the morning mix or to refuel you in the afternoon, this is the one for you!

I have always like the combination of blueberries and pomegranate seeds together. The blueberries compliment the pomegranate flavor nicely and the banana and honey of course add sweetness as well. When I make smoothies I try to use a milk and a yogurt, particularly Greek yogurt, to help me get a boost of protein and calcium. While I like to use Greek yogurt, it is by no means necessary. You can use any variety of yogurt you like and you can also try whatever milk or milk substitute you like.

I like to call today’s smoothie a super-smoothie, since it is packed with a few superfoods.

Lets take a quick look at some of the healthy ingredients in this Pomegranate Blueberry Banana Smoothie:

  • The spinach adds iron and a dose of leafy greens to your day as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Pomegranate seeds {or arils} are rich in fiber, vitamin C and K and antioxidants.  Blueberries are also rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, A and E
  • Greek yogurt not only helps to create a creamy smoothie, it provides you with protein, probiotics and B12 {necessary for energy and healthy brain function}.
  • Chia seeds offer antioxidants, protein and fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

If that isn’t enough to convince you to give this smoothie a try, did I mention it tastes delicious! The sweet fruit mixed with the creamy yogurt will leave you thinking you had dessert for breakfast.

Whenever I make smoothies for myself I always have to double the recipe for my sons. They go crazy for smoothies, and I love knowing that what they are putting in their body is nutritious and going to help fuel their busy, active days.

You can modify this smoothie in many ways from changing up the yogurt or milk, to adding kale or a different leafy green, to a scoop or flax meal or protein powder. There are so many options when it comes to customizing smoothies to your tastes.
