The Liquid Gold Smoothie

We call this Liquid Gold in our house, because no one can get enough of it! It is a staple on our breakfast menu. The frozen berries make the smoothie icy without having to add ice. If you plan to make these daily, find a good blender. We burned through several motors before finding a blender that works for our usage.

Add to blender in this order:

1 cup milk (organic whole preferred)
2 cups pomegranate juice (POM brand is great; verify it’s 100% pomegranate juice from concentrate)
4T ground flax seeds
4 heaping scoops of vanilla protein powder (whey based)
Frozen berries & Fruit (fill to the rim)

Note: Top it off with a little more pomegranate juice to hep with consistency.

Blend and enjoy!
