Pomegranate Smoothie with Blueberry Flax Seed

Standard

Summer is coming and on a hot day there’s nothing better than an icey cold smoothie.

You don’t have to necessarily go out to buy special ingredients for this drink–you can generally use what you have in the house. I love the blender I purchased off of Amazon. For this smoothie I used pomegranate seeds which I believe are in season from September through February. They come in neat packages pre-seeded from Trader Joe’s. They are delicious!

I generally go to the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays and I pick up all of the in-season produce I want. Some of you don’t like pineapple, some of you love strawberries, some of you hate apples, some of you love oranges–so you can really have fun here experimenting with your favorite delicious fruits. Just be careful, as too much fruit might make you feel sick and give you a really strong sugar high. Your smoothie really only needs ice, some dairy product (yogurt or milk) and fruits. I have added some other ingredients but you don’t have to.

I bought this special flax seed from Trader Joe’s because a trainer once told me to.
