Around here we drink smoothies all year long! I love creating healthy, smoothie recipes with in-season fruits & veggies. This beet & pomegranate smoothie recipe includes two of my favorite winter produce items; beets and pomegranates!

This pomegranate smoothie is packed full of 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 – it can be a great addition to a Christmas breakfast. One morning my son took a sip and exclaimed, “Mom this is so good! Can you make it every day”

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 Tablespoon 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! As always, I recommend using a Vitamix to make your smoothies.

Put the ingredients in the order listed in the recipe card into the blender – always begin with liquid ingredients (except honey).

Serve

Serve the pomegranate smoothie immediately with your favorite breakfast recipes. Also, don’t forget to try all of our favorite smoothie recipes.

  1. These are so bright and beautiful!! They’re perfect for this time of year, I love the beets in there! I need to start doing that 🙂

  2. Mmm…. It looks and sounds so good. I love that you put two yummy pink/red fruits/veggies in it; it’s such a brilliant color, and I can imagine that it would taste so delicious.

  3. I love smoothies and think they should be enjoyed year round! I have everything I need to make this and am trying it — that color is gorgeous!

  4. I just love smoothies ALL year long. Especially with beets! The color of this is so pretty and festive – so perfect for December if you ask me!
