Pomegranate Blueberry Smoothie Recipe


This smoothie recipe is low carb and features the healthy power of pomegranates and blueberries. Delicious!

Pomegranate Blueberry Smoothie Recipe I list the weight of each item to show how my nutrition information was calculated. You don't have to match the weight :). If you do choose to weigh your own ingredients, you can then enter them into the spreadsheet below to get your exact nutritional details.

Ingredients:
1 banana - 128g
1 cup unsweetened almond milk - 234g
1 scoop vanilla protein powder - 35g
1 Tbsp agave - 20g
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds - 34g
1/2 cup blueberries - 83g
6 strawberries - 300g
1 cup spinach - 60g
1 carrot - 48g
ice

We use a BlendTec blender which churns through the ice with no problem. Depending on how your blender works, you may want to pre-crush the ice. Other than that, just dump everything into the blender. We pre-cut the carrot up, but that's about it.

Whirr until it's a good consistency, then enjoy!

The one in the photo has some sugar-free chocolate syrup, sugar-free sprinkles, and a dash of cool whip in the middle for added fun. You don't need to do that of course. It's just as tasty without the decorations.

This makes two servings. The values per serving are:

Calories: 272.5
fat: 2.2
cholesterol: 31.8
sodium: 194.5
total carbs: 46.6
fiber: 7.3
net carbs: 39.3
protein: 15.3
vitamin C: 142.8%

It costs us $2.36 per serving to make this, with most of that being those strawberries. Maybe it's time to start growing some of those indoors in a container ...

So, as you can see, this wouldn't be something to eat during the first two weeks of low carbing, but after that it makes a delightful treat which provides a lot of protein, fiber, and Vitamin C. The more variety you can build into your menu arsenal, the more you'll have fun each day deciding what to try next!

Swing on by the forums to let us know what variations you enjoy.
