My POMx Experiment: Part 2

Wednesday, October 7, 2009




I received a wonderful box from the friendly people at POM several weeks ago. They asked me to test out some of their antioxidant iced teas and then see what I could do with them using a bit of creativity.

I already have enjoyed POM products for quite some time. I love their juices, particularly the Pomegranate Cherry. I just feel wonderful when I drink it--healthy and full of energy. Pomegranate is an antioxidant powerhouse. That is one reason I like it in everything from skin care to what I drink. You see, pomegranate is great for those with cardiovascular issues like me. It helps with blood flow and clogged arteries.

I have been trying out the various POMx Antioxidant Super Teas, and really have found them to be delicious and refreshing. I like some flavors better than others, but all have been good on their own and mixed in some neat recipes.

A couple of weeks ago, I shared my POMx Breakfast Smoothie recipe. It's made with silken tofu, berries and more.

I have another really yummy recipe to share. This one was fun to make and tastes delicious: Karley's Fruity Tea Sangria.


This is great in a punch bowl or large pitcher. It contains alcohol, but can be made without. To make this without alcohol, simply add more tea.

Recipe:

2 (16 ounce) bottles POMx Light Pomegranate Hibiscus Green Tea
2 cups apple juice (I like Mott's Organic 100% Apple Juice)
1 (750 ml) bottle Sauvingnon Blanc or other dry white wine
1 cup blackberries
2 apples, peeled and cored and chopped
2 plums, sliced
1 cup fresh cranberries
Up to 1/4 cup sugar (I use Sugar in the Raw)
Sliced lemons, oranges and limes for garnish and color

Combine the POMx tea, apple juice and wine. Add sugar and stir gently until it dissolves. Add in fruits. Chill for a couple of hours.

ENJOY!



Full Disclosure: I did not purchase the teas. They were sent to me along with the task to create some fun recipes and talk about them with my readers.
