  • ½ cup coconut water
  • ¼ block silken tofu

Instructions

  • Freshly squeeze juice out of the orange

  • Add everything to your blender, probably with some crushed ice if prefer, then pulse for a few time.
  • Serve cold immediately.

To extract pomegranate seeds

  • Start by rolling it a couple rounds to loosen the inside seeds.
  •  Carve and snap the top rind off.
  • Score along segment lines, then gently snap off each sections.
  • Simply pull off pomegranate seeds
  • You can now extract juice by pressing those extracted seeds against a sieve with a spoon or fork. Or simply pulse them a few time in blender then strain out the solid. Use the juice for the above smoothie with kiwi, orange and tofu

Notes

Another option is to freeze coconut water into ice cubes and use that with your smoothies to cool down without extra water-ice
