Pomegranate Slushie



A couple weeks ago I recieved my first free sample packet. I was so excited because I seriously intended to buy something similar and experiment with pomegranates and pomegranate juice. So, when POM Wonderful sent me a gleaming jewel colored package of pomegranate juices I was ecstatic. I have had so many plans for these little beauties. But a busy life has taken me hostage and baking and experimenting in the kitchen has taken a back burner in my life. However, I still have some fun ideas for this tasty and extremely healthy juice.


Did you know POM Wonderful 100 percent juice actually has more antioxidants than Acai berries or blueberries? I actually enjoy drinking it straight from its curvy little bottle but I must explore the possibilities. Here is one simple way to bring a little tropical to your winter.


My daughter had her tonsils out this week (busy life remember). So I decided to whip up a slushie for her sore throat that included the healthy healing benefits of pomegranate.


I added mango to this slushie. I liked the flavor twist but my children said they would have preferred a non mango version. So obviously the mango is optional.


SLUSHIE


1/2 to 3/4 cup of 100 percent pomegranate juice (depending on your desired consistency)


3 TB sugar


1/2 mango cut up (optional)


2 Cups crushed ice.


Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until frothy and uniform consistency. Start with 1/2 cup juice and add more as desired.
