Pomegranate Cacao Goji Smoothie

We love pom and since it is available only during this time (fall to early winter), we try to consume quite a bit of it during the thanksgiving season. Till recently though, taking the seeds out was a chore in itself, requiring a lot of patience and time. Not anymore, we got this savior video from Lifehacker to do this easily in no time. Since then eating pom is a piece of cake :-)

This smoothie is inspired by Cacao-goji smoothie from Passionately Raw. I thought the addition of pom into this smoothie would make a delicious and nutritious breakfast. So Enjoy pom while it is in season...




  • Pomegranate - 1
  • Raw cacao powder - 1/4 cup
  • Organic dried goji berries - a handful (soaked in filtered water overnight)
  • Organic raisins - a handful (soaked in filtered water overnight)
  • Organic raw almonds - a handful (soaked in a cup of filtered water overnight)
  • Organic banana - 1
  • Organic frozen cherries - a handful
  • Virgin cold pressed coconut oil - 2 Tbs.

  • Take seeds out of pom, see this awesome video for an easy way to do this.
  • Reserve a handful for topping.
  • Blend everything in a high speed blender.
  • Serve topped with pom seeds. Enjoy !!
  • I also serve it in a bowl sometimes with sliced fruits and homemade granola for a more filling breakfast :-)

  1. What a colourful combination! I have another pomegranate handy, and might have to use some of it to make this!

  2. YUM! I've never used pom in a smoothie before. LOVE how you add it to a creamy, chocolatey recipe. How pretty the topper looks too!
