Pom Wonderful Taste Test!
I was contacted by Ryan from the Pom Wonderful company. If you're not familar with this company, please visit this link to learn more. They sell the highest quality pomegranate juice I've personally ever had as well as the best tasting.
Imagine our excitement today when we went out to the mail and found a box of 6 - 8oz containers of Pom juice. The kids were very excited to try it. I must say I was a bit apprehensive because of another brand I had tried in the past. That other brand of pomegranate juice was not that good at all. In fact, I believe I dumped it down the drain. So as you can imagine, I was hoping this would be at least a bit better than the previous brand I had tried.
I openend the first bottle and took a little sip. Then another and yet another. This juice is so yummy! It was a little sweet and a bit tart. The flavor was absolutely wonderful! Next up was the kids. As you can see in the pictures, they very much enjoyed it! They didn't want to put the bottle down for pictures. lol! Jon even showed off his pom mustache.
Next up we decided to try a recipe like they have on their website. We could not find all the ingredients for any recipe they had so we made up our own - A Pomegranate, Blueberry and Banana Smoothie! The kids went wild for it. Next time I think I'd probably add in an extra frozen banana. That said, it was very yummy.
Pomegranate, Blueberry and Banana Smoothie
1 cup frozen blueberries
1-2 frozen bananas
1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil
1 - 8 ounce bottle pomegranate juice (Pom Wonderful brand)
1 teaspoon raw honey (or to taste)
1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend till smooth.
