Food Review: POM Wonderful
POM Wonderful is a widely available source of Pomegranate Juice.
Pomegranate juice is downright delicious, but here are some more reasons to include pomegranate in your diet:
Extremely high levels of Flavenoids which help prevent cancers like breast, prostate and lung cancer as well as Alzheimer’s Disease
- Protects cartilage throughout the body
- Can help lower blood pressure
- High in vitamins A, C and E and the mineral Iron
A good rule of thumb for getting a balance of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in one’s daily diet is to vary the color of fruits and vegetables. Pomegranate Juice has a brilliant, rich red color and thus it is a great choice from the “red” group.
I really enjoyed the POM Wonderful. It was fresh, tart, and very sweet. One downside is that it was a bit too sweet for me on its own. However, this is quite alright because I find most juices to be too sweet on their own. The POM Wonderful juice is a delicious addition to:
- carbonated beverages (freeze into cubes and drop into cold glasses of seltzer or club soda)
- batter for pancakes, muffins or quick breads
- fruit compote
It’s also delicious when frozen and then processed through a food processor or blender as a quick “healthified” version of a slushy.
I’m currently loving it as an addition to my green monsters. This one had spinach, POM Wonderful, yogurt, frozen watermelon and frozen pineapple. (If you’ve never had a green monster, I strongly suggest you go make one. They aren’t very pretty, but they taste great and are so healthy)
Thanks, POM Wonderful!
