Pomegranate Sorbet

A while ago, I received 8 bottles of pomegranate juice from PomBlogger. So far, however, I just used the juice to flavor my water.

Today, I decided to do something slightly more elaborate: Pomegranate Sorbet!

Ingredients
8 ounces pomegranate juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
1-2 tablespoons rum (thanks, Anna)

Directions
1. Combine all 3 ingredients together.
2. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish and put into the freezer for 30 minutes.
3. Every 30 minutes use a fork to "rake" the mixture until it reaches sorbet consistency (mine took about 2 hours).
4. Serve in a little dish or in a glass.

Check back next week to see what else I did with this sorbet :)




Of course if you are serving this dessert to children, leave out the rum! You can make the same dessert with any other juice you like. Imagine how pretty it would be to put pomegranate sorbet in the same bowl as orange one!

I drink pomegranate juice instead of orange juice, I just like the taste better. Olga, your sorbet sounds superb.

Awesome! I love pomegranate juice and have never thought to do a sorbet.

I often using vodka in my sorbets so they don't freeze to hard. Rum sounds like it work well.

Oh that looks so good, and so refreshing even if it is freezing here. I probably wouldn't even need a freezer to make this! I have some pom waiting to get used up as well. Delicious!
