Pomegranates have strong anti-inflammatory effects. Be sure to use unsweetened pomegranate juice (not concentrate) for a smoothie with no added sugar. For a beverage with more protein, add 1/2 cup almond or cashew milk or a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
What others are saying
Tiana D. says:
The blend of cashews with the banana and berries is really good. I prepped these in advance and keep them for later in my fridge. I put some greek yogurt in this for some extra protein and creaminess.
Greg Jones says:
This smoothie was so good! The cashews gave it a really creamy texture. In addition to pomegranate juice, I also added pomegranate arils. Delicious!
Caro Hodgin says:
this was so refreshing and tasty. i didn't have time to soak the cashews so just used them as is. worked fine, maybe had a little more texture than it was supposed to but i didn't mind.
