Pomegranate Orange Juice for One

I love pomegranate juice.   The sweet-tart fruit offers many health benefits.  The seeds kind of taste like a combination of cranberry and cherry juice.  I usually buy bottled juice from the supermarket.  This week though, I thought it would be fun to make my own. 


The easiest way I've come across to extract the juice was by using my citrus juicer. This works, but the process can be messy! 


Mixed with fresh squeezed orange juice and you have the perfect morning cocktail, without the alcohol -of course! 

Ingredients
juice from one pomegranate 
juice from 2 freshly squeezed oranges  

Directions
Use a citrus juicer to extract the juice from both fruits.  Pour into a tall glass and stir to combine.  Add ice and enjoy!

  6. You just can't beat fresh juice! I have never worked with a pomegranate to extract the juice, but I imagine it would be messy like you say! SO good, though!!!

  7. MMMM. That does sound good! I will have to try that. My kids are always wanting pomegranates but then they never eat all of it. I will have to juice the leftovers!

  17. Hello Brandi,
    This sounds so refreshing! Pomegranates are one of my favorite fruits and yes very messy! lol I plan on getting a suckling from my mil's tree this fall! Has to be this year since she maybe moving out of state in December!
    I've found it easier to juice them by taking off the peeling and separating all of the seeds first. And yes this is tedious, but then I can just throw them into my juicer. Thanks for sharing. : )

  18. Never have I wished I had a juicer more than right now! It's still worth doing the old fashioned messy way though, I'm sure.

  23. I used to work with someone who said that as a child, they all would roll pomegranates (you know, really press into them while you do it) to break the seeds inside and release the juice. They then stuck a straw into the fruit and drank the juice. I've never tried it myself.....
