This is a fun and healthy dessert "soup" and my family is crazy about it. The first time I made it last week, everyone wanted thirds, fourths, until it was gone--we've had it three times since then!:)
Did you know that pomegranates have more antioxidant power than red wine or even white tea? Before buying an expensive red wine this holiday season, think about serving this elegant and delicious soup.
You can prepare this impressive dish in under 10 minutes! Serve it up in shot glasses or small bowls and you have one impressive dessert. The best part? Its low calorie and low fat. Eating well has never been more delicious!


1 Cup Pomegranate Juice
Arils from 1 large Pomegranate (for garnish)
2 C. fat free half & half
1 ½ C. fresh strawberries, hulled
¼ c. orange Juice (juice from one orange)
½ c. Reduced fat sour cream
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons fresh mint leaves, chopped
Mint leaves, for garnish

How to Make

  • Remove arils from 1 large Pomegranate. Put all ingredients except arils into blender and process until well blended. Transfer to refrigerator until ready to serve. Pour soup into Pomegranate bowls and sprinkle 2-3 Tablespoons arils on top. If serving in shot glasses, fill and sprinkle arils to cover the top. Garnish with a fresh mint leaf.

  • Tips for Taking a Great Photo:
    • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your cupcake or sweet treat is the star!
    • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
    • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
    • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
    • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
