Just a week until Christmas and the start of the holiday indulgence.
It is so hard to make it into the New Year without gaining a few pound around this time of the year. Since the middle of December a lot of people go to Christmas parties, whether with colleagues from work or with friends that they won't be able to see on Christmas Day, both ways there is always so many temptations around the festive table - fancy looking appetizers, delicious festive meals and warm-up drinks. A party is after all about celebrating.
That's why it is a good idea to start the after-party morning with healthy breakfast that will cleanse out your body - and I am talking about a vitamin rich smoothie.
The recipe I am offering you is super easy to make, but at the same time it is all you are going to need after having heavy dinner the previous day.
Pomegranate and Banana Christmas Smoothie
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 5 minutes
- Yield: 3
This pomegranate and banana smoothie can be served as a nice Christmas drink.
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1 cup banana (peeled and sliced)
- 1 cup yogurt
- If your are using fresh pomegranate fruit, you will need a large one so that the juice is approx. 200 ml. Cut the fruit and remove the grains. Blend them and put the mixture through a strainer to remove the seeds. Now you have freshly squeezed pomegranate juice that is so much richer an vitamins and nutrients than the store-bought version.
- Place the pomegranate juice, the banana slices and the yogurt in a blender and blend until desired consistency.
- Serve and enjoy that festive smoothie!
