I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

I was contacted not long ago by Ryan from POM Wonderful, who offered to send me a case of the company’s 100% pomegranate juice. Never one to turn down something delicious, (I’ve tasted – and really liked – POM in the past), I immediately responded in the affirmative. A week later, a box of chilled POM bottles was delivered to my door and I set to work brainstorming what tasty treats I could make featuring the sweet & tart juice.

Tart Pomegranate Frozen Yogurt

I’ve been fixated on homemade tart frozen yogurt since churning the batch of basic vanilla, so I figured my first POM experiment might as well be a pomegranate flavored yogurt. Although my friend and fellow blogger Shannon beat me to it, (I love her addition of the chocolate chips!), I decided to go ahead and post my own version.

Tart Pomegranate Frozen Yogurt

The pomegranate flavor infused into the yogurt comes from a homemade pomegranate syrup, which couldn’t be simpler to make as evidenced below.  I find homemade frozen yogurt to be at its best consistency when served straight from the ice cream maker; but if timing dictates a trip to the freezer first, the yogurt softens up nicely if kept out out on the counter for a little while prior to serving.
