Several of the POM Wonderful varieties we originally trialed have been discontinued. So this is an informational review post only. I cannot yet give it a rating or offer personal notes on the taste of the different varieties. But if you have tried any of them, please do leave a comment with your own review!
How to Use Pomegranate Juice
Though juices and blends are almost always dairy free, Pom Wonderful provided intrigue that I couldn’t resist sharing. Those attractive hourglass bottles of pomegranate juice offer a sweet-tart punch that I enjoyed as is, and is positively delicious in smoothies. If you prefer apple juice over cranberry juice, look elsewhere, because pomegranate juice isn’t super sweet. Nonetheless, if you like a little contrast, it is definitely worth a try by the glass or in some dairy-free recipes:
- Watermelon Raspberry Spinach Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette
- Quinoa with Peppery Watercress, Pears, and Pomegranate
- Perfectly Pomegranate Smoothie
- Eskimo Kiss Spiced Pom-Apple Cider
- Pomegranate Mocktail
- Pomegranate Lemonade
- Amazing Pom-Mango Smoothie
Mixing Things Up: POM Wonderful Juice Blends
POM Wonderful also makes several types of juice blends. I’m lumping their 100% juice combos, official “blends” and Super Teas all into this category. Any of these varieties will work in smoothies and other recipes, but are more drinkable on their own.
The 100% Pomegranate Juices include Pomegranate Cherry and Pomegranate Blueberry. That’s it, just pomegranate and berries. Although the Blueberry does contain natural flavors.
The refreshing Super Teas come in enticing pomegranate juice-spiked blends, including Peach Passion White Tea, Lemonade Tea, Sweet Tea, Honey Green Tea. I did get to try the Super Teas several years ago, however most of the flavors that I sampled have been discontinued. Of the current flavors, Tony and I both enjoyed the Peach Passion, which was a sweeter, milder tea with pleasant fruit notes.
The Juice Blends are tropically inspired juice, coconut water and fruit puree combinations in Hula, Coconut, and Mango. I’m just dying to try the Mango and know that Tony would love the pineapple juice-spiked Hula.
