I'm new to healthy eating and smoothies but this is the most delicious one I've found!
I only make half since it's just for me and I used low fat cottage cheese as a prior reviewer suggested. The second time I made it, I added some baby spinach leaves and a flax/chia powder blend - and it seems to be true that it didn't affect the flavor to me!
I don't know if POM juice is really healthy or not - fruit juices tend to have a lot of sugar and it seems everything I read has conflicting information... But I figure 1/4 cup can't be too bad. And maybe it is good for me. :)

This is FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

The most delicious thing ever!!!! And healthy!
Even half is enough!

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.

Tasty, filling.
Some tweaks make this an awesome breakfast

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!
