Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie Ingredients

- Plain Greek yogurt: Yogurt adds protein and creaminess to the smoothie.
- Bananas: Adding frozen banana slices gives a creamy and thick texture to the smoothie.
- Blueberries: You can boost nutrition and flavor by adding blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries to the smoothie. I had some frozen blueberries in the freezer that I added.
- Pomegranate arils: Add pomegranate seeds for garnish.
- Sweetener: You can use maple syrup or sugar to adjust the sweetness level of the smoothie.

I prefer to enjoy smoothies right away but you can store smoothie leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Give it a quick stir if it separates.
Can Smoothies Be Made Ahead and Refrigerated?
I prefer to enjoy smoothies right away. This blueberry pomegranate smoothie is best eaten immediately, or at least within 1 day.
