This beautifully colored smoothie is delicious and will keep you physically and mentally happy. As well as providing intoxicating flavor, this smoothie is packed with healthful antioxidants.

To make it, I process in a blender crunchy fresh pomegranate seeds and strawberries along with banana and some yogurt. This combination produces mild natural sweetness and a hint of sourness with richness and body in the smoothie. After dividing the smoothie into glass cups I pour some Benimosu on top of each portion.

First enjoying the stunning colors of this smoothie, and then stir it with a long spoon to mix the Benimosu vinegar throughout the smoothie. Benimosu not only increase the power of the antioxidants in the smoothie, but its zesty tanginess brings a magical balance to the flavor.

My recipe uses only a very modest amount of sugar – just ½ teaspoon, but if you have sweet tooth, increase the sugar in the recipe to suit your tastes.


  • 1 ripe Banana
  • 12 Ice Cubes
  • 4 large fresh or frozen Strawberries
  • ½ tbs Sugar
  • ½ cup full-fat, plain Greek Yogurt
  • 4 tsp Benimosu Purple Sweet Potato Vinegar
  • 1 cup Pomegranate Seeds from the fruit and a little more as garnish


  • In a blender add peeled banana, pomegranate seeds, strawberries, ice cubes, sugar and yogurt and process until completely smooth.
  • Divide the smoothie into 2 tall glasses. Garnish the top of the smoothie with Benimosu. Serve with a long, stirring spoon.
