Pomegranate Strawberry Smoothie

My husband and I start most mornings with a smoothie and our favorite base are strawberry smoothies.  He requests a plain strawberry smoothie most mornings but I like to kick it up just a notch.  This easy to make Pomegranate Strawberry Smoothie is just the thing.    By using pomegranate juice I don’t have to spend forever trying to dig out the little pomegranate arils (often referred to as seeds).

Not only does the pomegranate juice add a punch of flavor that I love but it’s a great way to start the morning.  Pomegranates have a variety of healthy benefits that make it worthy to add to more than just strawberry smoothies and according to the Huffington Post below are a few key ones we should all keep in mind!

    • Reduce dangerous LDL-cholesterol in blood

    • Improve blood flow to the heart in patients with coronary artery disease

    • Reduce thickening of the arteries that supply blood to the brain

    • Lower the level of systolic blood pressure
