Now, before you read the ingredients below, see “pomegranate seeds” and think “no thanks…those are more trouble than they’re worth,” give it a second longer. Why? I know, pomegranates do seem like a bit too much effort. But you can’t overlook the benefits of these gorgeously hued fruits in these smoothies, like my Orange Pomegranate Smoothie.
Heath benefits of pomegranate
Packed with vitamin C and a long list of antioxidants, pomegranate seeds and juice are full of anti-inflammatory compounds and plenty of healthy fiber. Add the power of the pomegranate to the health benefits of oranges, and you will begin craving my Healthy Orange Pomegranate Paradise Smoothie at any time of the day. After all, oranges are famous for their vitamin C content!
This orange pomegranate smoothie is simple, fast, nutrient dense and an amazing shade of fuchsia!
