Ingredients you'll need

Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Slice the pomegranate in half on the equator. Hold one pomegranate half loosely in your hand, cut side down. Hold it over a bowl. Whack it soundly with a wooden spoon and the pomegranate seeds should fall out into the bowl. Repeat with the other half, and pull any seeds that don’t shake free from the pomegranate.

  • 2.

    Scoop all the pomegranate seeds into your blender and pour in the coconut water. Blitz for a few mins till smooth, then pour through a sieve into a jug or bowl to catch any unblended bits of pomegranate seed. Press the pomegranate pulp with the back of a spoon to squeeze out any last drops of juice. Pour the pomegranate and coconut water mix back into the blender. Discard the pulp.

  • 3.

    Peel and break the bananas into the blender. Pop the stones out of the dates and add the dates to the blender. Tuck in the baby leaf spinach. Add a few ice cubes.

  • 4.

    Blitz till smooth and combined. Pour into glasses and serve straight away.
