I wanted to make something festive and of course something that tastes delicious and would be fun to make in a punch bowl or just for some family. I found organic pomegranate juice at Trader Joes after fresh pressing it for the event so I would recommend buying that. Has anyone ever tried juicing a fresh pom? Not only is it time-consuming but it is so dang messy, I hope you enjoy and make sure to take you activated charcoal!
I worked on this recipe all summer last year, I needed to replicate what I was tasting in juice bars in order to create "mint chocolate chip" but healthy of course. After working at Rancho La Puerta and completing their summer juice and smoothie menu, I realized I couldn't get the flavor profile I wanted without the banana and date combo. Try this on a summer day, and boy does it take you back to the good ol minty chocolate ice cream, but WAY healthier of course.
