Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie-you only need 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to make this healthy smoothie!
It’s a new year and that means many of us are focusing on healthy eating. Today I am sharing one of my favorite healthy smoothie recipes. This Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie is easy to make and easy to drink! I promise you won’t be able to taste the greens and you can’t see them either. The blueberries and pomegranate juice hide the green color, so you don’t have to tell your kids, spouse, or friends! They will never know they are drinking such a healthy smoothie!
I love this smoothie because it only has 5 ingredients: blueberries, pomegranate juice, banana, spinach (or kale), and ice. It’s that simple!
Blueberries aren’t in season so I use frozen blueberries. We buy the huge bag from Costco. They are perfect for smoothies!
Add all five ingredients to your blend and blend away! Pour the smoothie into glasses and enjoy! I always share with Caleb. He loves this smoothie too!
Start the new year with this Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie! It is great for breakfast, after a workout, or for a quick and healthy snack!

This is basically my go-to smoothie recipe – I have some frozen almond milk cubes that I like to use in place of the ice.
I just tried my first pomegranate – yum! Love the idea of using all my leftover juice in this quick, easy and healthy x 1000 smoothie!
I’ll be adding some local, organic kale to my next smoothie. Thanks! We use our own Pomegranate and Wild Blueberry Juice Concentrates in ours every time.
Defiantly going to use this recipe for breakfast! I’m 15 years old and I lost almost 40 pounds last year, and I feel amazing. Its been hard trying to find some good recipes that I can eat and not feel guilty about it and still stay on top with eating healthy! Thanks for this awesome recipe!
This is such a fabulous recipe for the new year! Yum!
Hey, love this recipe however do you know what I could substitute the banana for as I don’t like them and my child is allergic to them?
You can add more blueberries or other berries. Strawberries and raspberries would be good!
I love that you’ve managed to smuggle a handful of kale in there too. Does it overpower the taste of the fruit?
You can’t taste it at all!
this looks delicious and healthy! I love new morning smoothie ideas!
I am obsessed with all things pomegranate so this is the perfect smoothie for me!
Oh I love the color on this!! And I adore adding spinach and kale in my smoothies! What a great way to kick of healthy eating habits!
This looks so delicious! I was needing a new smoothie recipe! Thank you
Should I feel guilty? As I sit here reading this, I’m eating chocolate peanut clusters…the last of the Christmas candy I made!
This looks delicious! I tend to get in a smoothie rut! Adding this to my rotation!
I love the pretty color! This looks fabulous!
Yum! This looks so healthy and delicious! 🙂
I really just cannot get enough pomegranates right now so this is looking perfect! Love the color too!
I have been on a TOTAL pomegranate kick right now and love the flavor of juicy-ness it bursts! Can’t wait to have this with kale!
Perfect for the new year! I received a NutriBullet as a Christmas gift and this is going in it this week. Love the pictures!
This smoothie is gorgeous! Definitely adding it to my rotation of smoothies for this month! Pinned!
A terrific smoothie! I like to add veggies to my smoothies (beets are also camouflaged by blueberries) so much that the kids now ask: ‘what vegetables are in this smoothie?’! I’m honest, and they drink them anyway.
This looks delicious.
These photos look far too summery! What a tease! I would also like to propose a new type of pomegranate that requires less work to eat 😉 Great recipe!!!
I love pomegranates and this looks delicious!
I make a smoothie similar to tthis except I add 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt and about a tablespoon of honey instead of the banana.
I added a few grapes. Excellent!
Love this with hemp protein!
Hi Maria and Josh,
I was wondering if you could tell me the calories and sugar in your blueberry pomegranate smoothie?
What would you suggest for a protein add to this smoothie?
You could add in your favorite protein powder or a spoonful of almond butter.
