POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate juice can energize your family with antioxidants and the bold color is perfect for any Thanksgiving table. Pomegranate juice was found in an in vitro study to provide more antioxidant capacity than red wine, grape juice, and even green tea! A POM spiced cider with an 8 ounce serving will offer as much potassium as a banana, too. Since it’s Pomegranate season and National Pomegranate Month, you can use both POM and Pomegranate arils to elevate homemade cranberry sauce. Arils can also add color, texture and nutrition to vegetable side dishes like this roasted butternut squash and brussels sprouts
