Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

It's officially winter, and we are certainly feeling the season with colder than normal temperatures, rain, and little sunshine. Although, I am so thankful the solstice has come, and the days are slowly but surely beginning to lengthen. Spring seed catalogs arrived in the mail this week, so I have been flipping through and marking page after page of seeds to order, listening to music, and spending time with my family in this lazy week between Christmas and the new year. Christmas gathering foods were so good, and we indulged happily! But this week, we have been in the kitchen preparing veggie and protein filled meals and fruit smoothies for simple snacks. I have been making this blueberry pomegranate smoothie for the last several days, and it has become a favorite! It's packed with lots of antioxidants and vitamin C and is anti-inflammatory for those of you whose bellies don't love holiday food as much as you do. I hope it makes you feel good. And cheers to the end of another year, friends. See you in the next.

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

1/2 cup frozen blueberries
seeds from 1/2 pomegranate
1 Meyer lemon quartered and peeled
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons agave syrup 

Put all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until smooth. 
Add a handful of ice and blend until consistency desired is reached. 

Note: My favorite way to deseed a pomegranate is using the wooden spoon trick
