Banana, Blackberry, Raspberry and Pomegranate Smoothie

♬ 'Hits of the 90's' By Various Artists

Tempted to make a sandwich to start off my Christmas meat binge, I hesitated as the fruit on my fridge shelf looked ready to be used. Drinking this smoothie might not look better than a fat bacon sandwich with brown sauce but it's sure healthier!

This smoothie is sweet, not too thick, a bit seedy (dental floss at the ready), and just a great energy boost to the day.

Recipe for this dark purple cup of goodness.

1 large ripe banana
6 blackberries
6 raspberries
5 cherries
150ml semi skimmed milk
20g pomegranate seeds (small handful as these add the seedy bits)

: With each cherry, treat it like crushing garlic with a large knife. Place knife on top of the cherry and press down until cherry is squashed and remove the seed. A technique to use if cherries are going to be processed, otherwise they won't look pretty.

: Keep one of each ingredient out to decorate the top of the glass. I totally forgot about banana and raspberry! 

: In no specific order put all the ingredients in a jug and blend. 

If you don't want to use milk, try natural yoghurt.
