POMEGRANATE JUICE

A big hai to all u there. Hope just like me, u all too have enjoyed ur holidays and new year 2009. Days went soo soon and now am back with my routine period. We have been to LA and San diego with my cousine and obviously it was fun. After returning from trip we celebrated potluck new year which was also very excited and memorable one. Again wishing u all a very happy new year. On this, I have come up with an attractive and tasty drink 'POMEGRANATE JUICE'. The pomegranate fruit has lots of benefits like it prevents breast cancer, protects arteries, lowers bad cholesterol, blood pressure etc etc.


The drink was much more delicious when I topped it with mint leaf that I like to have them in most of my drinks. I feel it brings out the real fresh flavour and just double the taste.


INGREDIENTS.

2 Pomegranates.

2 tsp Sugar.

1/4 cup Fresh Lemonade Juice.

1/4 cup Apple Juice. (optional)

Mint leaves for garnish.

(Hey guys have a sip) :)



METHOD.

Seed the pomegranates. Blend them in a mixer along with sugar for about 1 min. Strain the juice if desired. Mix in the fresh lemonade and apple juice and top it with mint leaf.



Enjoy !!

Happy New Year Suma. Thats one tempting refreshing healthy drink and I wish I could have it for my breakfast now! Do you actually seed pomogranates - thats sounds like lots of hard work! What if its ground with the seeds and filtered?

Yummy post about pomegranate. Unlike any other superfood such as acai or noni, pomegranate is not hard to come by and it comes cheap too.
