I love pomegranates. But I don’t think I’ll be the first to admit they can often be sort of a pain to get to the good part! POM Wonderful has a perfect solution to that. You can partake of those delicious little, juicy arils now with just a cup and spoon! And what more—they’ve provided both of those for you as well! Inside the lid of the cup of arils is a little plastic spoon that folds up and fits in perfectly. It is great for scooping out arils for whatever you wish. Sprinkle them on salads, cereal, whatever you’d like or just eat them right out of the cup! The cups are available in two different sizes—4.3 ounce cups or 8 ounce cups. They are available now through February.
I will tell you a couple of my favorite things I’ve done with them (yes, besides eating them with the spoon right out of the cup!). One thing I have loved putting them on is my morning Greek yogurt and granola.
I often add bananas as well, but not always. At the time POM Wonderful asked if I wanted to try the cups, I actually had 1 3/4 of whole pomegranates in the fridge. They are still there! I will eat them soon, but have sure enjoyed having them ready-to-go in cups! (Thanks, POM Wonderful!)
Another thing I have recently enjoyed them on is some homemade raspberry sherbet with swirled chocolate. What a great combo! Love the extra chew and juiciness from the arils!
I recently made (for the first time) some raspberry jam and canned 10 jars of it! (Go me, Mrs. Domestic!) ;) But I had a couple pints of frozen/thawed raspberries that I’d made the jam with leftover, so I turned that into some sherbet. I didn’t really write down what I did, but used just some agave nectar to sweeten it a little and some skim milk. It’s actually really good! At the end of the churning, I drizzled in a little melted dark chocolate—I love the combination of chocolate and raspberry! Just for a little added umph, I sprinkled it with a bunch of POM POMS! What a treat—and pretty healthy, too!
Thank you, POM Wonderful for allowing me to try the cups of POM POMS. I love them! Want to try them, too? You can get a $1.00 off coupon for them on this link--
