Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

Sharing is caring!

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie and a little Julia Child

I alluded to some good news in my 2013 recap post, and now I can go ahead and fill y’all in: For the past few months I have been working part-time for a PR firm in the Chicago area. It was supposed to be a temporary position, just to help them get through the holidays, but just before Christmas I was offered a full-time position.

And I accepted.

Want to know something else pretty amazing? This past weekend Boyfriend received a job offer, too. He’s been searching since he moved here and to finally have both of us employed – in fields that we love – is the best Christmas gift we could have received.

We’re practically millionaires!

But seriously. God is so good, and we are so blessed.

2014 is off to a pretty great start, so I thought I would continue the greatness with my new favorite breakfast: this Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie.

I’m not much for making resolutions; I’m more for starting the new year off with some balance. For me, balance means reading my new Julia Child cookbooks while sipping a super healthy Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie. We’ve got banana for potassium, blueberries for vitamins C and K, manganese, and antioxidants, Greek yogurt for protein, and pomegranate juice for even more antioxidants. It’s both sweet and tart and will easily become your new favorite breakfast or post-workout snack. Personally, it’s my favorite “I indulged too much at dinner last night” recovery tool. Because, you know, balance is important.

This looks amazing. I'm always looking for a new smoothie recipe because I really don't use me Vitamix for anything other than baby food and I really need to. Happy New Year!
