Ingredients
  • ¼ cup pomegranate seeds or pomegranate juice, plus additional pomegranate seeds for topping
  • 1 large frozen, ripe banana
  • ¾ cup vanilla dairy-free milk beverage, plus more as needed (I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons protein powder (see note below), nut Butter, or sunflower seed butter
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon or ginger
Instructions
  1. Blend the ¼ cup of pomegranate seeds or juice and all remaining ingredients in your blender until nice and smooth.
  2. I use a lesser amount of milk alternative for a thick spoonable shake-style smoothie, but you can add more.
  3. Top with some additional seeds for taste and asthetics.
Notes
For protein powder, I recommend using an unflavored plain variety or vanilla. To keep it dairy-free, you can use egg white protein powder (this option is not vegan), rice protein powder, pea protein powder, hemp protein powder, or even a nut-based protein powder! If soy isn't a problem for you, there are also many dairy-free soy protein powders on the market.
