How To Use Pomegranate
From decadent desserts to fresh and crisp salads, here are 5 ideas of how you can incorporate pomegranate into your daily diet:
1. Indulge in these easy to make 3 Ingredient Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Clusters.
2. Make a refreshing and hydrating Pomegranate, Ginger and Lime flavoured water
3. Drink an energizing glass of Organifi Red Juice
4. Chow down on a Pear, Pomegranate and Spinach Salad
5. Start your morning with a Pomegranate Breakfast Parfait
TIP: To prepare your pomegranate… it is easier to separate the seeds from the rinds by:
- Freezing the whole fruit – remove from freezer and take out the seeds
- Place the pomegranate (cut in half) in a large bowl of water to work the seeds out of the rind. The seeds will sink and the rind floats making it easier to separate the two
Have a bright and juicy day!
