How to Make the Best Pomegranate Smoothie

The beauty of this smoothie is that you can put everything in the blender at once and blend.

When you start with frozen blueberries and raspberries, you don’t even need ice to make this recipe. That makes things a little easier on your blender and it helps keep your smoothie thick and full of flavor, not diluted by melting ice. 

I love to add a dash of vanilla extract to the blender to heighten the flavors of the berries and the yogurt. However, if you’re out of vanilla or find the flavor too strong, feel free to leave it out. 

The salt in the smoothie is great for balancing the sweetness. In addition, the sweeter berries balance out the tartness of the pomegranate juice.

Tip: I recommend putting the pomegranate juice in the blender first. Having the liquid on the bottom will help the blades move smoothly as the rest of the ingredients move downward.

What Kind of Juice is Best?

My favorite juice for this smoothie is Pom Wonderful Pomegranate Juice. It has a tart flavor that’s the perfect complement to sweet berries and vanilla yogurt. You can find it at most grocery stores and at Costco!

Frozen vs. Fresh Berries for Smoothies

I prefer using frozen fruit in this smoothie. It adds a thicker, creamier texture. However, fresh blueberries and raspberries will also work. If you’re using fresh fruit, however, you may want to add a handful of ice to make your smoothie colder and thicker.

Serving Suggestions

You can sip this creamy fruit smoothie out of a tall glass or with a reusable stainless-steel straw as-is if you like. For more crunch and heartiness, serve it as a smoothie bowl. Simply pour the smoothie from the blender into a bowl and add your favorite toppings. Here are some tasty smoothie bowl toppings to try:

  • Almond Raisin Granola
  • Fresh pomegranate seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Sliced almonds or walnuts
  • Fresh or frozen blueberries or raspberries
  • Sliced banana
  • Chia seeds

Storing Leftover Smoothie

If you have leftover pomegranate smoothie, store it in an airtight container or travel mug in the fridge. Be sure to stir the smoothie well before serving. It will last for up to one day. 

If you like to prep breakfast ahead, you can make the smoothie the night before. Leave it in the blender container for storage, then give it a quick blend in the morning. 

You can also freeze smoothies for up to three months in an airtight container. Just let it defrost overnight in the fridge, and you’ll be ready to grab your breakfast and take it on the go.
