I can’t say I have a sweet tooth and I’m quite picky when it comes to desserts. Clearly, sugar & fat bombs are not for me. Except sour candy, but I’m trying to quit. I know it’s going to be hard because my in-laws brought me 3 packs of Fraises Tagada (strawberry flavored gums) back from France when they came to visit last month. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please have a look at these Fraises Tagada beauties).
But enough with junk food. I’ve always loved yoghurt (French people eat up to 3 yoghurts a day!!!) and as I grew a bit tired of eating the same industrial fruit yoghurts on repeat, I thought that I should try something new (and more natural!). The great news is that pomegranates are back in season! Yeahh! Thank you taste.com.au for inspiring me to do this recipe!!
If you’re not already convinced to try out this recipe just by looking at the pictures, here are only a few good reasons why you will love it: it is super fresh and perfect for summer, it contains real and fresh fruits (unlike most yoghurts you will buy, plus it is perfect if you’re struggling to eat fruits like I do) and it’s healthy as the only source of sugar are honey and fruits! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Servings : 4
Timing : 30 minutes
– 16 soup spoons plain yoghurt
– 150ml cream half & half
– 1 pomegranate
– 4 soup spoons liquid honey
– 4 drops pure orange extract
– a few mint leaves for decoration
Start by removing the seeds from the pomegranate. Good luck because it takes quite a while!
In a large bowl, mix together the plain yoghurt, the cream, the pomegranate seeds, the honey and the orange extract.
Pour the mixture into 4 separate bowls.
Sprinkle with additional honey if you have a (very) sweet tooth and add a few mint leaves.
Leave in the fridge at least 30 minutes before serving. You want it to be super fresh!
If you’re having guests (or not!), you could add shortbread biscuits with the yoghurt!
