Can you believe that it’s almost Christmas?! Crazy! Time is just flying by these days, especially as I get busier with blog stuff, training, and group fitness. I have to keep in mind that I shouldn’t get too busy with goings-on that I forget to make time for the really important things.

Time management hasn’t always been my strongest point, but I am working hard at it! Getting a blogging schedule nailed down and working at following through on my Drink the Rainbow series.

Soooo a Pretty in Pink smoothie isn’t exactly Christmas-y except for the pomegranate. But there really is no season for smoothies – they’re always good! I had to get a little creative with this one since most things that look pink end up turning juice a darker red.

I threw the orange in there for a little bit of tartness, but if your pomegranate juice is nice and tart on it’s own then you can adjust the amount of orange.

For this smoothie, I threw in the pomegranate arils, then strained the juice to remove any of the ground-up seeds. I don’t mind doing this since I usually eat the arils whole anyway and if there are some little seed pieces in my drink I don’t mind. But if the thought of any stray seed bits really bothers you, you can just use some bottled pomegranate juice instead.

I think pomegranates are one of the most beautiful fruits! The color of the juice is just amazing – unless of course you get it on your clothes, then not so much!

Don’t forget to check out my other Drink the Rainbow Smoothies: the Green Goodness Smoothie and my Yellow Sunshine Smoothie. So far in this series we have done green, yellow, and pink. What color would you like to see featured next in my Drink the Rainbow Series?
