  • Sweet. Beating fruit will be the new ultimate gym soon…?

  • Try tapping gently with the side of a small hammer. Most of the arils dropped out for me! And the peel became quite pliable so it was easy to get the rest out. Yummm!

  • I just tried it and it works just as fast and easy as he said!

  • I’m sorry it didn’t work for you. I have had great success removing the seeds this way. You might try hitting it harder or using a heavier spoon.

  • Didn’t quite work for me…..

  • @John316 .. maybe because this is the ‘Blendtec Official Blog’ …. So anything to promote their product…?

  • You don’t. That is just what I had on hand when we did the photo shoot.

  • Errr, why do you need a blendtec to smack a Pomegranate?

  • Thank you for this! I had no idea it could be this easy! I had to try it for myself, and post it on my blog!

  • I really did this the hard way. After cutting in half, I took the seeds out one at a time and enjoyed them. It takes awhile, but,—- -my—- what pleasure!!!!

  • Are you serious! It was that easy all along?! I feel so….yeah….That easy all along. I am so posting this to Pinterest, because it is absolutely pin worthy. Who would’ve known!

  • I love your titles of the different methods. I find the “smack back” method to be much more efficient and fun.

    Nate Hirst on

  • Opened one just yesterday, and used the slice and pick method… cut into quarters, pull out as many arils as possible into a bowl of water, remove the pith, pour into a sieve and eat… I’ll have to try the “smack the back” method… will likely lose less arils that way!

  • Oh my gosh that is unreal. I have been eating these for ever and I have always done it the hard way. Peal it, or try to. Thanks you so much for the information. Makes me want to go get one just to try it.

  • Such a wonderful how-to, I love the idea with the water and really don’t understand why I ever did this without!

  • Just the comment I was waiting for :)
    These fruits are quite expensive here in Denmark and I didn’t want to go and buy one before another reader tried and confirmed this tip :)
    So thank you! :0)
