Tangy Orange Pomegranate Smoothie Bowl

May 21, 2012 at 6:03 am 3 comments

Have you ever eaten (or slurped) a smoothie out of a bowl like soup? Apparently, this is a blog/food trend that I missed…

Naturally, I had to give it a try…it was an experience, but I admit that I prefer to sip a smoothie from a glass. Now, if I added some crunchy granola on top I might be singing a different tune. Or maybe I was quite hungry and the spoon got in the way :)

Whether enjoyed in a bowl or glass, this smoothie is a refreshing breakfast, snack or light meal. The pomegranate and orange juice combo really hit the spot and the tangy citrus notes and slightly sour arils remind me of summer. Hot days here we come!


Tangy Orange Pomegranate Smoothie Bowl 

Ingredients

1/4 cup pomegranate arils
1/3 – 1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
splash of pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (cottage cheese, silken tofu, or non-dairy yogurt – use tofu/non-dairy for vegan)
drizzle of honey/agave, 1 date or a pinch of stevia – optional for added sweetness
1 Tbsp chia seed or chia meal (for extra nutrition, flax would also be a great addition)

Pomegranate arils for garnish and texture, optional
For an extra protein boost, add 1/2 to 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder
Serving suggestion: Crunchy Superfood Buckwheat Granola or other cereal for serving

Directions

1. Add all ingredients except to a blender and blend until completely smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. Pour into a bowl (or glass), sprinkle with arils and/or granola and enjoy!

    I haven’t try that either, but I just love to have the smoothies in a glass and a silly coloured straw. Nice touch with the pomegranate arils. Have a wonderfull day!

    Beautiful looking smoothie! Pomegranate arils are so pretty. I’ve actually never ate a smoothie out of a bowl like this, but sometimes I make really thick smoothies that would probably be really good served like that.

    I’ve never had pomegranate or had a smoothie from a bowl (intentionally). I didn’t realize that was a thing! The other day we were out of glasses and so I had to put my smoothie a bowl and I thought it was kind of lame. But this doesn’t look lame! It looks delicious. :)
