blueberry & pomegranate smoothie

Around here we always seem to be “on the go” and it’s a daily task to keep our lunches healthy and fast. One way we keep the fast food line at bay are smoothies. Smoothies are very enticing for kids and delicious year round. The best part about packing a smoothie for your children’s school lunch or a meal at work is to make it the night before, store it in a freezable container, freeze it, pack it the next day, and once it’s time to eat lunch the smoothie has thawed into a cold delicious treat. One of our favorites is this Blueberry & Pomegranate Smoothie.

Blueberry & Pomegranate Smoothie makes 1 cup

  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup fat-free or 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 tsp honey, optional

1.Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on medium until mixed and smooth. If serving immediately, pour into a cup and serve.

2.If packing the smoothie for a lunch on the go: Pour into a freezable cup with a lid. A BPA free cup is preferred.

3. Place in the freezer and freeze overnight.

4. Place the frozen smoothie in a lunch box and by the time you’re ready for lunch the smoothie will be thawed and perfectly cold and delicious.

cooks notes: If planing to serve right away, use frozen blueberries for a thicker colder smoothie.

    What a great idea to send a smoothie for lunch. I’d never have thought of that.
