Around here we drink smoothies all year long! I love creating yummy blends with both fruits and colors that encompass the current season. This Beet & Pomegranate Smoothie includes two of my favorite winter produce items; beets and pomegranates!

I am into special occasion breakfasts. I love a pile of french toast or a giant cinnamon roll as much as the next person.

This Beet & Pomegranate Green Smoothie is a fun & healthy special occasion breakfast that won’t leave you too sugared out to enjoy the rest of the day. It’s loaded with antioxidants, fiber, fruits and veggies so you can start the day energized!

Plus, if you give it a fancy name like Santa Slush or Rudolph Fuel your kids will totally buy in and love it for a Christmas breakfast. When I served it to my family Gabe exclaimed, “Mom this is so good! Can you make it every day?!”

Beet & Pomegranate Smoothie: Ingredient Substitutions

  • Almond milk. Substitute any milk you’d prefer in this recipe – dairy milk, coconut milk, oat milk etc.
  • Honey. If you like your smoothies a bit more tart you can omit the honey. I have found that in order for my kids to love smoothies I need to add at least 1 TBS of honey. Use maple syrup for a vegan version.
  • Spinach. Any leafy greens work well in this recipe! I suggest spinach and kale.

How to make a pomegranate smoothie

This recipe is as easy as putting all the ingredients in a blender and turning it on! Nothing fancy and it takes like 3 minutes to make. As always, I recommend using a Vitamix to make this beauty.

  1. Done this smoothy and accidentally used cooked Beetroot instead of raw…so I am wondering whether that has offset the colour a bit since mine ended up looking quite dull in colour and certainly not the vibrant red that is shown on the picture. The taste is nice however.

  2. 4 stars
    I added regular milk, didn’t add any banana or spinach, coz I had neither. The taste could have been better, but I can’t blame the recipe for that. Still looking for a pomegranate recipe my kid would like. Thanks a bunch for this one. It was promising.
