Delicious! 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.:) Read More

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. Pros: Tasty filling. Cons: Not as sweet as I like. Read More

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! Read More
