Grapefruit Pomegranate Smoothie by Better Me For Life - BetterMeforLife.comIf you’re like me, you’ll love the tartness of this grapefruit pomegranate smoothie. The flavors of grapefruit, pomegranate, and strawberry blend together to give it a tart, yet full-bodied flavor. This smoothie also boasts high nutritional benefits including helping with digestion, immunity boosts, and anti-inflammatory properties. Grapefruit is known to have many health benefits, and is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants. Pomegranates aren’t shy in the nutritional area, either. Like grapefruit, they contain lots of vitamin C. They are also loaded with fiber, protein, vitamin K, folate, and potassium.

The strawberries in this recipe add the sweetness to help tame the other flavors. Although they are milder in flavor than the grapefruit and pomegranate in this smoothie, they are powerful when it comes to health benefits. Strawberries have a unique combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients. Research supports the health benefits of strawberries for cardiovascular health and helping with blood sugar regulation.

This recipe calls for 3/4 cup of pomegranate juice. I am not a fan of buying fruit juice because the juice processing removes many of the beneficial nutrients from the fruits. Making your own pomegranate juice is really easy – just follow the instructions here.
