Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

I can’t believe the crazy amount of stuff we accomplished today and this weekend. We finished up some homemade orange liqueur. We made cake, scones, fish tacos, corn fritters, and of course, a cocktail. And, I got a ton of laundry done. But it’s been a hot one. The windows are all open and they will be all night. We’ve been drinking tons of water to stay cool. Kind of makes me want to have this smoothie again for breakfast:

I was shooting for a client recently and had an enlightenment: coconut water is so good in a smoothie. It was used instead of dairy in a smoothie I was shooting and I have to say, I’m a huge fan.

And, I got this pomegranate juice for another project, but I was excited to use it to make this smoothie have a little more pucker.

I don’t know what I’m going to do when summer is over and there aren’t berries growing everywhere. Cry, probably, into my frozen fruit smoothie. Heh.


Here’s what you need for two 20oz smoothies:

I've mentioned this before, but I'll say it again. I love making meals that center around fresh produce. Look at all this color (and vitamins. And fiber. And and and).
