Yogurt Pomegranate Delight
(I had to give it a fancy name to compensate for how simple it is.)
Who says that you can’t have dessert?
Who says that desserts are fattening?
Who says you have to be a great chef to dazzle your friends?
Makes about two servings and is easily scale-able. Also, it saves easily in the fridge.
- Two cups of quality yogurt. (Don’t get the cheap stuff, or the gross fat-free stuff that is loaded with sugar and unpronounceable ingredients.) Look for
organic, goat’s milk, grass fed, etc.
- About 1/3 cup of chia seeds.
- A generous 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds (I like to cut them up and get the juice on my hands, but it’s easy to find them already sans skin)
- A capful of natural vanilla extract (no artificial stuff, please)
- About two teaspoons of real?maple syrup. (Don’t even go near the aisle where they sell the fake stuff)
Mix completely. You better sit down when you taste this, ‘cuz you might fall over.
Variations. You can easily add any of the following. You can’t go wrong!
- Your favorite type of seeds or nuts (sunflower, almonds, cashews, pumpkin, flax)
- Other fruits like organic blueberries, sliced bananas or apple.
- When serving to company, a small piece of dark chocolate?on the side or in each bowl is a lovely touch. Our friend, Kent, who is a total foodie, raved about this no-brainer of a dessert after the dinner we served him.
