It's officially October!
But I'm not whipping out the pumpkin juust yet.
I'm mixing up those end of summer vibes with autumnal fever for this yummy and health boosting recipe.
Check out the recipe below and scroll down to learn about the health benefits of this smoothie bowl!
This deliciously dark smoothie is packed with a long list of health benefits and tastes absolutely divine.
Portions: 1 large bowl or two small cauldrons
1 full pomegranate (just the seeds)

1 cup fresh squeezed mandarin juice (may vary)
(optional, but recommended):
1 teaspoon flaxseeds
