How To Make Sugar-Free Blueberry Pomegranate Juice?

Both blueberries and pomegranates have excellent taste and fragrance and are both very rich in certain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Since there is no single food to be called a super-food, the blueberry pomegranate smoothie and/or juice are very close to that - the super-food. And such juice can be made rather quickly.

The recipe is simple and straightforward. There are several juicers that can be used to make such juice, and personally, a slow/cold masticating juicer is perhaps the best since it will provide good juice yield for both fruits and it will separate solids very well.

But, one can also use a blender to blend the fruits and a strainer with a fine mash to filter the juice.

This juice was made using fresh pomegranate arils and frozen blueberries - fresh blueberries would be better, but at the moment of making this juice, the harvesting season of blueberries was over...

Put the fruits in the blender and blend them thoroughly for 20-30 seconds on the max. speed. If You are making a smoothie, there is no need to add water, but if You plan on making juice, consider adding one dcl for every 200g of fruit - this also depends on the desired "thickness" of the juice. blueberries pomegranate juice 4

After the blending, let everything settle down.

Now, if You are making a smoothie, pour the liquid as it is into the glass and serve with a spoon.

If You are making a juice, strain everything through a very fine mesh and separate juice from the solids. Solids can be used for pies, jams, and similar since very sharp blades in the blender will slice even pomegranate seeds.

And the juice, the juice can be served fresh or kept in the fridge for a day or two - personally, fresh juice is the best, especially if at least one of the fruits was frozen before juicing.

A glass or two of such or similar juices is all that one needs to boost the vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant daily intake... With no additional sugar added!
