I do not eat fruit. However, when I tried forcing myself to drink smothies (I hated most of them) I tried this one and I fell in love! This smothie taist wonderful my taste buds dance when ever I have it; I have never taisted anything so great. I was skeptical when I saw cottage cheese in the recipe, but me and my whole family LOVE this smoothie, I make it three times a week and my body loves the smoothie every time!

This berry smoothie is made with pomegranate juice and packs lots of satisfaction from banana and cottage cheese.
3 Reviews for Pomegranate Berry Smoothie
I cut the ingredients in half, used 4% milkfat cottage cheese (only adds 2.5g fat) and added two dates to sweeten if up. Maybe an extremely ripened banana would have helped. Yum, yum.
This is a wonderfully smooth and delicious breakfast. However, if you are like me and you are likely going to eat the this smoothie as one serving instead of two, so to cut out a lot of the sugar and some calories, reduce the pomegranate juice down to 1/4 cup. You will get a thicker smoothie and still plenty of pom flavor. Also, I recommend using reduced fat cottage cheese instead of fat free because it improves the texture quite a bit. I'm convinced that the little bit of added fat helps me stay full a bit longer in the morning, too - added bonus!
