When I concoct a smoothie I love, it tends to become my default somewhat indefinitely – like this berry-blend I wrote about not too long ago. But this morning I was forced to deviate, having unexpectedly run out of the mixed berries we usually have stocked in the freezer.
Luckily, we happened to have unopened bags of frozen organic peach slices and frozen organic tart cherries (both Costco!), just waiting to be put to good use. And, I also had a few dwindling fresh ingredients in the fridge needing to be finished and not wasted (greens and strawberries), and half of a banana left over from Peter’s smoothie. Voila, a new recipe was born!
I also just yesterday bought Pomegranate Powder by Navitas Naturals (from the local Natural Grocers, where it was much cheaper than on the Navitas website), my curiosity piqued after reading a few excellent reviews of this new product. It’s hard to discern whether I can actually taste it or not, but it blended really nicely into this smoothie, and I love the nutrient boost it adds! Navitas makes across-the-board consistently great products – some of my favorites in the superfood category – so I’m not surprised.
