The Original Super Juice – Pomegranate â¤ï¸

September 4, 2015

I am officially back from my summer holidays. We had an absolutely lovely time away, lots of swimming, fresh fruits and vegetables and sunshine. Now its time to start the new school year with all the energy and enthusiasm we can master.

We ate very healthily whilst away, plenty of melon, watermelon, peaches filled with vitamins and nutrients for our bodies. You can actually feel and see the difference of healthy eating and exercise very quickly. Brighter clearer skin and an overall feeling of energy.

  
One juice which I could not stop drinking whilst abroad was pomegranate juice. A deep red juice which was not too sweet but more tart and totally refreshing.

The Pomegranate is one of the oldest known fruits, this nutrient filled, antioxidant rich fruit has been known as a symbol of health, fertility and eternal life for a very long time. 

Pomegranate Juice

Pomegranate juice is available all year round, but fresh pomegranates are in season from September through to January.  Delicious as a juice or just as they are – sprinkle the seeds on a salad for a brilliantly colorful, crunchy, and nutritious addition.

So now I’m back home I’ve been looking for a store bought pomegranate juice, and have found a winner! 

  

Pom Wonderful is just as it’s name says, ‘wonderful!’ Each 710ml bottle contains the juice of six Californian grown pomegranates! Absolutely no artificial ingredients or cheap filler juices. The tartness makes it so refreshing and is just delicious over ice. 

Delicious, healthy & refreshing

Here are a few of the benefits of this super drink –

  •  no added sugars, preservatives or colorants
  • good source of potassium
  • gluten-free
  • flash pasteurized to retain both flavor and nutrients

Here is a lovely recipe for adults to enjoy, my husband and I enjoyed a glass each in the garden last night once the boys were in bed.

Vodka & Pomegranate Fizz (makes 2)

Ingredients-

– 1 part Vodka

– 3 parts Pom Pomegranate juice

– 2 parts Sparkling Mineral Water

– Freshly sliced lemon & pomegranate seeds to garnish

Method –

Place all the ingredients in a large cocktail pitcher, stir and mix well with a spoon. Fill two tall glasses with crushed ice. Pour over the cocktail mix and garnish with a large slice of lemon & pomegranate seeds ❤️

If you want to enjoy a non alcoholic version just leave out the Vodka for a refreshing summer drink. 

My boys find pomegranate juice a little tart as it is, but the geniuses at Pom Wonderful have created different combinations which would be lovely I’m sure. I cannot wait to try more!
