I serve this smoothie during the holiday season to my family and guests. Just because it may be cold out doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this heart-healthy drink that includes the star of the season, pumpkin and pomegranates!!
Pumpkin is filled with potassium, fiber, and Vitamin C, all which supports heart health.
Pomegranates have been eaten throughout history for their health benefits. High in Vitamin C, is a powerful anti-inflammatory, helps aid in digestion and many, many more health benefits, including heart health!
