ARF - Pom Passion Smoothie

So, spring is here. Of course, if the weather would co-operate...Anyway, I welcomed spring this past weekend with lamb, and tonight I ask it to settle in, with a quick smoothie. I decided on this to try and use up some of the pomegranate juice I had left over from the lamb pilaf. Now, I've never tried pomegranate juice on its own, but I've always been fascinated by the Pom wonderful bottles. Goodness knows why - I just am. This smoothie came from their website, and as it is a smoothie, it was easy to put together. Combine ingredients in blender - blend. I can do that.

The smoothie was definitely tangy. Whether that comes from the pom juice or from the plain yogurt, I am not sure. It's a tangy that is right on the border of too much. It might be nice to tame it somehow - maybe do it with vanilla instead of plain yogurt? I like it, but something slightly sweeter might turn it to love.

Oh, and ARF is hosted by Sweetnicks
