This time of year we need to nourish our bodies and boost the immune system. This is a hectic time of year with lots of stress and when the body is stressed it is much more prone to catch any little bug going.
What better way to boost the immune system, than juicing some fresh pomegranate and some fresh oranges and make a truly delicious and potent drink served on ice?
I could feel every cell in my entire body wriggle with joy, while drinking it 🙂
This is a real health bomb, as pomegranate is so full of goodness and is known to lower cholesterol, high blood pressure, excellent for the skin, as well as being packed with vitamin C – so along with the oranges, this is really a health booster!
The pomegranate can be a little tricky to seed but once you get the hang of it it is quite easy. Don’t do the job wearing your best clothes as it’s really juicy and the juices will escape everywhere even if you are careful. For this serving, I used one big pomegranate and 10 oranges for 4 good sized glasses of juice.
Prepare the pomegranate by taking out the seeds, put them into the juicer and then juice the oranges – serve the drink on ice – Enjoy!

Wow, that looks and sounds so delicious! I love the gorgeous color. You know I’ve never had pomegranate but it stares at me at the store, so this drink may change all that!! 🙂
I hope so Brandi 🙂
I am sure you will love it – it is such a beautiful fruit!
I also make a salad with pomegranate, pineapple, apple and walnuts and it is so good! https://annesturetucker.com/2012/07/24/plant-wild-week-day-2/

How beautiful are pomegranates 🙂 Nice one to try after the holidays. Or maybe I’ll make it and put booze in it 😛
Haha yes I am sure you could add some booze and it would be quite something 🙂 Hmm you got me thinking Cass!!
Your post actually reminded me of pomegranate juice in Istanbul. They have them everywhere in the street in the winter. They just juice them using an orange presser and it is fantastic.
Pomegranate juice in Istanbul – sounds wonderful 🙂
