I just love POM pomegranate juice!  It is good by itself and good mixed with other juices or in smoothies!  Recently the wonderful people at POM sent me a few samples of their pomegranate juice!  I've been enjoying it and the family has been as well! 

Greenberry Shakeology is pretty good with POM in it too!  It makes it a nice pink color! 

POM is 100% pomegranate juice and comes in a variety of sizes!  I like the 8 oz bottles - easy to throw in a gym bag or purse, but at home the larger bottles are handy for making yummy smoothies!

POM Morning Shake:

juice from 2-3 large POM Wonderful Pomegranates* or 1 cup POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
3/4 cup vanilla soymilk or regular low-fat milk
2 ice cubes
1 large banana, peeled and broken into chunks
2 tablespoons slivered or sliced almonds
2-4 tablespoons protein powder (optional)
1 teaspoon honey or to taste


Prepare fresh pomegranate juice
In a blender combine the pomegranate juice with soymilk, ice cubes, banana, almonds, protein powder (optional), and honey to taste. Cover and blend on high speed for 30 seconds.
Pour into 2 tall glasses and serve immediately.
