Pomegranate Antioxidant Punch

Age-Defying Drink




 

Pomegranates are a champion source of polyphenol antioxidants to help keep cells and skin young and beautiful and to sweep the body of free radicals from pollution and metabolic waste. Look for fruit with smooth, firm skin and a uniform shape. Red grapes contain an abundance of cell-protecting resveratrol, as well as age-defying antioxidant flavonoids and phenolic acids. Oranges are loaded with antioxidant vitamin C and carotenoids to disarm free radicals and fortify overall health. Add a splash of sparkling water for a lighter, scarlet colored, fizzy drink.

Yields: 2-4 servings

3 pomegranates, seeds separated
1½ cup red grapes
¼ cup fresh orange juice, apple juice, apple cider or water
 

1. Cut the pomegranates into quarters.

2. Separate the pomegranate seeds from the skin and pith.

3. Place pomegranate seeds in blender with grapes and juice, cider or water.

4. Blend until smooth.

5. Pour through a mesh strainer or sieve and press with the back of a large spoon to extract all the juice.

6. Serve chilled.
