As a big Pomegranate fan, I was thrilled to be asked to review POM Wonderful Juices. They have also offered one of my lucky readers the chance to win 3 bottles of POM Wonderful and more details on that will be at the end of this review. I was sent some vouchers for a couple of bottles of POM Wonderful and I decided to try the 100% Pomegranate Juice and also the Pomegranate and Blueberry Juice.
Both juices come in a 710ml bottle which I love the shape off as they look like 3 pomegranates stacked on top of each other. A bottle is currently priced at £3 and I found mine in Sainsbury's.
POM Wonderful is made from 100% California pomegranates and pomegranate is known for it's antioxidant properties. It is an excellent source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K and fibre.
I knew that I would enjoy POM Wonderful, both flavours were absolutely delicious. It is a juice that is both tart and sweet at the same time and very refreshing. The version with the blueberry (14%) was a lovely twist as the blueberries added more sweetness so if you find pure pomegrante juice a bit too hardcore give this one a try.
I am very excited about the recipes that POM Wonderful have on their website for some exciting cocktails, both alcholic and non-alcholic. Here is a couple of recipes for you to try!
20ml POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice

1 Egg White Glassware: Martini Garnish: Pomegranate arils
Crack an egg and separate the egg white into a glass
