I’ve had a pomegranate sitting in my fridge for awhile now just waiting for me to find a way to use it up. I thought about using it on pork chops but very rarely do I ever eat pork or any other meats. Now that Spring has finally arrived with summer-like temperatures I thought this would be a great way to use it up for a nice, light treat. Sometimes I mix it up with whatever else I have on hand, such as honey, vanilla yogurt, granola, pineapple, almonds, or any other fruit or topping that you have on hand that will add great taste with minimal fat and/or calories.
1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt (such as Fage)
1/3 cup pomegranate arils (the pulpy seeds)
2 tsp thinly sliced fresh mint (about 5 leaves)
optional: granola, honey, slivered almonds, pineapple chunks, or a tiny amount of vanilla and/or almond extract
Fold mint into yogurt. Layer yogurt mixture and pomegranate arils in a clear dessert dish. Makes 1 serving.
