Once you learn about some of pomegranate’s amazing health benefits, you will want to start incorporating this superfood into your regular diet right away. But if you haven’t meal prepped with pomegranate before, it might be a bit hard to get started. Here are four tips on how to start adding pomegranate to your summer meal plans.

Salad Dressings
Let’s be honest: it’s a whole lot easier to get excited about salads in the summer. There’s something about fresh air and sunshine (oh, and maybe the promise of a beach day) that inspires us to eat light, healthy and genuinely nourishing foods.

Pomegranate seeds add a great burst of sweetness to any salad and they pair well with almonds, ampples, goat cheese, even sweet potato—just about any ingredient under the sun. But for a fun twist on a summery salad, use pomegranate juice as the base for a deliciously creamy dressing instead.

As tempting as it might be to buy a smoothie while you’re on the go, preparing them yourself gives you total control over taste, sugar quantity, size…and let’s not forget price.

Next time you’re prepping smoothies for the week, consider incorporating Red Crown with one of these tasty recipes. Your friends, family and coworkers will be drooling over your to-go cup once again, wondering what secret new smoothie stand you’ve discovered.

There’s one more thing that summer sunshine seems to inspire: patio drinks. We all have our favourite venues for an afternoon of fancy cocktails, but if you’re the entertaining type why not invite friends over and mix the drinks yourself?

From martinis to mojitos, there’s really nothing a splash of Red Crown Pomegranate Juice won’t improve. And with lots of recipes to sample we’re offering you the perfect excuse for repeat parties all season long.

Cold-Pressed Juice
Of course when all else fails, the easiest way to add pomegranate’s incredible benefits into your summer routine is with a bottle of cold-pressed Red Crown Organic Pomegranate Juice.

Our non-GMO, kosher, gluten-free juice fits into everyone’s dietary restrictions and offers significantly more antioxidants that the next leading cold-pressed option, making it a no-brainer summer staple.
