Pomegranate smoothie

 

It is the season for pomegranate. After a hot summer, the seeds have a dark red colour and they are delicious and really sweet. One of the best ways to eat pomegranate seeds is simply raw in a juice, in salads with nuts and raisins or, if you have a sweet tooth, just add some sugar.  The pomegranate tree was domesticated long long time ago and that is the reason why in almost any culture the pomegranate is present. In most ancient cultures, it is known as the fruit of fertility, prosperity and youth. It was so important in early times that even a city has its name, Granada in Spain. Nowadays cosmetic companies exploit its amazing properties by including it in facial creams, usually advertising it as antioxidant due to its high level of vitamin C.

    I really need to give it a second chance!
