[tweetmeme source=”VeganChickie”] Pomegranate has always been a favourite of mine. When I was growing up we had a pomegranate tree in our backyard and I used to love picking them and eating them seed by seed until my finger tips were stained red, unfortunately we aren’t able to get them in the town where I live but at the moment bare-chested-chef and I are on holidays in sunny QLD so I am able to experience pomegranate joy once more.

Pomegranate Smoothie


1 pomegranate, seeds only
1 banana
1 apple
3 handfuls of spinach leaves
1 tbs ground chia seeds (optional)
1/2 cup water


1. Place your fruit in the blender, add water and blend until smooth, add your ‘greens’ and blend again until smooth. Add your chia seeds and blend until they are mixed through. Serve.

Amounts above will be enough for 2 smoothies.

NOTE: The amount of water you use will depend on how thick you like your smoothie, I just use enough to get the blender going nice and fast, if you like your mixture to be less thick, add more water.
