5 Ways to Eat Pomegranates (plus how to de-seed them!)

Plump, juicy pomegranates are at their best right now, and we’ve got five great ways to enjoy those tart, crunchy arils. 

Pomegranate Banana Chia Parfait 

Pomegranate Chia Cups
Start your day with a delicious pop of colour. The evening before, combine ½ cup chia seeds with 1½ cups of milk, ½ cup of French vanilla yogurt, ¼ cup shredded coconut and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Refrigerate overnight and in the morning, it's as simple as slicing some banana into the bottom of your bowl, adding the chia mixture and topping with a tbsp or two of pomegranate arils. 

Winter Squash and Pomegranate Salad

This sweet salad is a perfect lunch or dinner side dish. Make a quick dressing by whisking together 2 tbsp maple syrup, 2 tbsp white wine vinegar, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 2 tbsp orange juice, ½ tsp orange zest, ½ cup canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss the dressing with your favourite combination of roasted squash, green and red peppers, yellow onions, toasted pumpkin seeds and of course, pomegranate arils. Bon appetit! 

Pomegranate Spritzer

Pomegranates have two really good things going for them: a taste that is sweet and tart at the same time, and their gorgeous red colour. Use these to make uniquely flavoured, beautiful cocktails. Juice the seeds by mixing them in a blender and straining, or simply add some arils into a fizzy drink like we've done here, with blood orange Dry Soda, a sugar rim and pomegranate. 

Pomegranate Yogurt Dip

Put your hand upon a chip, we’re about to do da dip. Combine 1 cup of Greek yogurt, ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese, ¼ tsp ground cumin and ¼ tsp chopped garlic with a little sea salt and some chili flakes. Fold in ¼ cup of diced cucumber. Transfer the dip into your serving bowl, top with ¼ cup pomegranate arils and drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil on top. Garnish with fresh mint springs and thin half-slices of cucumber. 

Baked Brie with Pomegranate

Cheese + fruit = obviously. Warm up a wheel of brie until the insides are ready to spill out sumptuously. Top with pomegranate arils and a little thyme and serve with crispy toast or crackers. Each bite is deliciously rich, fresh, smooth and crunchy all at the same time.
