Anyone else already combating colds like crazy this season? Me me me (raising my hand). Lucky me (blah!). But there is nothing more refreshing for a sore throat then an icy, fruity smoothie like so. This Wild Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie has been one of my go to smoothies lately and I love all the vibrant flavors in it, plus the blueberry and pomegranate flavors just go together.
This is a smoothie my whole family loves and I love that it’s packed with good for you ingredients. I made this smoothie in my favorite blender – my Blendtec Blender. We could probably say these blenders are life changing without that statement seeming too dramatic :). But really, I used to use a lower end blender because I didn’t want to pay over $90 for a blender. And it wasn’t until I was probably on my fourth blender, and 5 minutes a blend because I’d have to keep stoping and stirring and even add more liquid than should be necessary, and I finally realized it’s worth the investment to buy a Blendtec Blender. These blenders are built to last (plus you can have peace of mind with the 8-year warranty they offer).
Simply put I really love my Blendtec Blender (I have this model). I leave it on my counter and never put it away (which is a big deal around here because I have a lot of different cooking gadgets and what not) but this blender is definitely one of my favorite kitchen tools. I use it nearly every day and if you are looking to buy a new blender I highly recommend this blender. And yes, with the holidays just around the corner it would be a great thing to ask for (send this post to a loved one – hint hint :). Or just a great thing to gift to yourself because we all need to treat ourselves sometimes.
Try this smoothie soon! It makes for a great breakfast and it’s a smoothie you can enjoy year round since it uses frozen blueberries and the pomegranate juice is also sold year round.
