Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup frozen or fresh pomegranate arils plus extra for garnish
  • 1/2 cup almond milk or other non-dairy milk or dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup plain 2 % Greek yogurt
  • juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pine nuts for garnish
  • ice for serving

Instructions

  • Combine all pomegranate arils, almond, or other, milk, lemon juice, spices, and sea salt in a blender, and blend until smooth.
  • Pour over ice, garnish with extra pomegranate arils and pine nuts, and serve.

Notes

  1. Vegan Option: Swap honey with maple syrup and use non-dairy milk + non=dairy yogurt.
  2. Low FODMAP Option: Swap honey with maple syrup. Make with lactose free milk or low FODMAP dairy free milk, and with lactose free yogurt {i.e. Green Valley Organic}.
  3. Tasting note: If you've never added sea salt to a smoothie before, try it! Just a pinch of salt is a great way to enhance the flavors in any recipe.
