Vanilla Pomegranate Oats & Whey

Want to add a splash of vitamins, minerals and tangy fruit flavor to your already great tasting Natural 100% Oats & Whey shake? Go to a market that specializes in exotic whole fruits and pick out a nice, ripe pomegranate. Getting at the fruit inside can be a workout in itself. But once you master the technique, you'll be looking forward to the next opportunity to indulge in antioxidant-rich goodness.

Carefully score the fruit's hard exterior with a knife and break it open. An effective method for separating the red arils from white pulp is to drop the mass into a bowl of water, where the arils sink to the bottom while the pulp floats. Now plug in an electric blender and fill the jar with 6 to 8 ounces of cold water. Add a scoop of Vanilla Bean Natural 100% Oats & Whey, cover and bend for 5 to 10 seconds. Start on a medium speed, then downshift to low. Add half a cup of pomegranate arils along with a couple of ice cubes, cover and repeat the blending cycle. Get ready to enjoy one flavorful, nutritious shake.

The Bigger Picture: Half a cup of pomegranate fruit boosts the dietary fiber, carbs and protein value of your Natural 100% Oats & Whey shake while adding only a gram of fat. But you're getting 9 mg iron, 205 mg potassium, 9 mg vitamin C and 14 mcg vitamin K in the bargain. You'll find it well worth the effort for post-workout nutrition, a between meals meal or pre-cardio energy.
