Diary-Free Orange Pomegranate Smoothie

orange-pomegranate-smoothieWe love this time of the year, with fresh locally grown oranges available in abundance. If you’ve ever had a chance to visit the Cederberg region in autumn, it may bring back sweet memories of citrus orchards, and ripening fruit.

In this recipe, when you’re juicing the oranges for this smoothie, don’t hesitate to use the pulp too (remove the pips), as it adds fibre, and the OmniBlend will blend it completele smooth. Alternatively, you can use a few orange juice ice cubes. Pomegranate is packed with antioxidants, vitamin C and potassium, making it a good immune booster for winter days, and is believed to reduce cholesterol.

Cashew milk adds a hint of sweetness, and creaminess. It’s easy to make your own, you can find the recipe here.
