Raspberry, Pomegranate & Ginger Smoothie
Recipe type: Drink
Serves: About 2 cups
  • 1 fresh pomegranate
  • 1/3 cup raspberries (I used frozen)
  • 1/2 banana (I used frozen)
  • 1/4 cup plain, unsweetened yoghurt
  • Peeled 1 inch knob of ginger
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (or other favourite seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses (or honey, or pure maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon blackcurrant powder or maca powder (or other favourite supplement)
  • About 1 cup almond milk (or rice milk, or filtered water)
  1. Extract the arils from the pomegranate (I use the good old whacking method) and add the arils and juice to your blender.
  2. Add the frozen raspberries, banana, yoghurt, ginger, chia seeds, pomegranate molasses and blackcurrant powder. Top up with almond milk and blitz in a high-powered blender (you'll need to blend for longer than normal to pulverize those arils).
  3. Taste test and adjust for sweetening if necessary. If it needs thickening, add a bit more banana; if it needs thinning, add more almond milk. Serve immediately.
