Super Acai Antioxidant Blast Smoothie Recipe with Pomegranate

Pomegranates, blueberry and acai berry are all extremely rich in antioxidants. They also go great together in a smoothie!

Acai (pronounced “ah-sigh-ee”) is a tiny berry that grows on a species of palm tree in Brazil. It is praised for it’s super high antioxidant load and possible disease-fighting phytonutrients. The flavor is sometimes described as a combination of red wine and chocolate. The berry is low in sugar too.

Acai, with it’s “red wine and chocolate” flavor mixes well with pomegranate and blueberries to provide a rich, complex flavor.

You can use bottled pomegranate juice but I prefer to use the actual arils since it will not have been pasteurized and I know that it’s fresh and the most potent in antioxidants.

To remove the seeds from a pomegranate, simply cut it in half and use a metal spoon smack the peel as hard as you can while holding the cut end over your blender.

As with most of our smoothie recipes, you can make this a green smoothie by adding fresh baby spinach, romaine lettuce or other leafy green of your choice. Strong, bitter greens like kale or dandelion might interfere with the flavor of this particular blend.

Adding raw cacao powderto this smoothie will give it a tasty chocolate flavor.

Super Antioxidant Blast Smoothie Recipe

  • 1/2 cup fresh pomegranate arils
  • 100 grams of frozen acai berry puree
  • 1/2 cup blueberries

Start by adding the liquid to your blender (see my blender recommendations), followed by the soft fruit. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.
