The recipe is rather simple and straightforward - peel off the pomegranates and collect the arils in a suitable pot.

In order to make pomegranate juice, one has to separate the juice from the seeds, which can be made using slow, masticating juicers - such juicers produce the most juice with almost no foam that can be kept in the fridge even for few days.

Or one can use a simple mechanical pomegranate juicer in order to separate the juice from the seeds - such juicers are not as efficient as masticating juicers, but they are also much cheaper, much smaller, and practically produce almost no noise.

So, put the arils in the juicer and squeeze the juice out, and put it in the suitable glass.

Since the best tasting juice with the most vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants is freshly made juice, consume it right away.

Such freshly made pomegranate juice may contain a large amount of vitamin C and other vitamins, antioxidants and minerals, that are very beneficial for human health, especially for athletes that have several workouts per week, or even per day.

Also note that pomegranate juice contains naturally occurring carbohydrates (and sugars), on average 13-15g per 100g of juice.

So, if You are on a low-carb diet, count those carbs in your daily carb intake.

On a diet or not, freshly made pomegranate juice is a great tasting snack that is highly recommended for people wanting to boost their daily vitamin, mineral, and antioxidants intake and should be part of any well-designed and balanced nutritional plan.
