A few weeks ago, the nice folks at POM Wonderful contacted me and asked if I was interested in trying some of their 100% pure pomegranate juice. In case you were wondering, of course I said yes! Especially when they said all I had to do was try the juice and give them my honest opinion. I'd never had pomegranate juice before, so I thought why not!?
Plus, pomegranates are known for their antioxidants and Runner's World even recently tagged POM Wonderful as a good recovery drink! (something about something in it helping with inflammation..)
A few days later a case of 100% pure pomegranate juice showed up on my doorstep. My first impression was that the tiny little bottles they come in are SO CUTE! I would think something like that though, wouldn't I? Then I tasted it. The taste of it was a little tart and slightly bitter, kind of like cranberry or grape juice. It was different and I definitely liked it!
My favorite thing to do with it was make smoothies!
I mixed frozen strawberries, half a banana, a little bit of milk, some Equal (to taste), and an 8oz bottle of the POM Wonderful. I think the pomegranate juice is the secret ingredient that all of my strawberry smoothies have been missing! It added that extra little kick to create the perfect smoothie! DELICIOUS!
They have plenty of recipes to try out on their website. I think I will definitely be adding pomegranate juice to my grocery list from now on! Thank you, POM Wonderful!
Please note that I had the sincere pleasure of receiving a complementary case of POM Wonderful in exchange for a review about their product. The opinions expressed are fully mine and I was not paid to say I like this product.
