After discovering how easy it is to de-seed a pomegranate, I’ve been having fun using the seeds in many recipes. I’ve also enjoyed just eating them on their own too. I had fun with this refreshing pomegranate filled afternoon pick up me and loved how simple, quick and pretty it was too.
I finally made the trip to Trader Joes to pick up some peanut flour. I haven’t been able to find it anywhere else and really wanted to give it a try. It’s lower in fat and higher in protein than regular peanuts, plus it gives that peanut butter-y taste to my smoothie that I love.
