The Review: I was very surprised that I really liked the taste of the juice. Golfergirl however did not like the taste. She said it tasted "weird". Not sure what that means to a nine year old. I liked the health benefits that POM Wonderful has, so I really wanted to find a way for Golfergirl to still get the benefits. I was very happy that the POM Wonderful website has some wonderful recipes that use the juice.
Golfergirl loves smoothies so I decided to make the POM Morning Shake for her. I was a little sneaky since she did not know I was going to use the pomegranate juice.
1 Cup POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
3/4 Cup Low-Fat milk
2 Ice Cubes
1 Large banana peeled broken into chunks
2 Tablespoons sliced almonds (left these out of Golfergirls)
2 Tablespoons protein powder(optional) (left out of Golfergirls)
1 Teaspoon honey or to taste.
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for 30 seconds. Pour into two glasses and serve immediately.
She loved it and wanted more. When I told her it had the juice in it she just gave me one of her "Mommy you got me looks" and kept drinking.
I liked it both by itself and in the smoothie. I have to say the smoothie was delicious. I am going to try to some more of the recipes.
