I wish that every morning could be a Sunday morning when we have the leisure to sleep in, get up in no rush, enjoy a long and relaxing breakfast with family and sit around in PJs forever. Yes, that would be my kind of perfect morning.
Unfortunately it is often pretty hectic. In addition to our usual breakfast staples of granola with yogurt, cooked oatmeal, and soft boiled eggs on toast, we just found this pomegranate banana breakfast shake, which adds another tasty but quick and healthy solution to our weekday mornings.
The pomegranate banana milk shake gets assembled by blending pomegranate juice, milk, frozen bananas, good vanilla extract and honey. In less than two minutes you are rewarded with a velvety, fresh and scrumptious tasting morning treat that allows you to start your day healthy and nutritious. Did you know that pomegranate has been tested to be one of the leading sources of antioxidants?
A view out of one of my kitchen windows shows you what our mule deer friends outside are up to in the mornings. I prefer my pomegranate banana shake over their breakfast choice.
Don’t miss out on this delectable and smooth pomegranate banana breakfast shake. It is out of this world. My kids also enjoy this shake as a mid afternoon snack after returning from a long day at school.
* 1 cup (250 ml) POM 100 % pomegranate juice
* 3/4 cup (180 ml) milk, soy milk, or almond milk
* 1 frozen banana, peeled and sliced
