Pomegranate Yogurt Dip With Banana

This is yet another pomegranate recipe…when I was looking for Pomegranate recipes in the net I could find only smoothie or salads. My friend used to add banana in yogurt, which is the great dessert after had such a heavy meal. So I decided to give myself a try of adding pomegranates in yogurt with bananas. It turned out very well and I got good feedback from my hubby. Takes only few minute to prepare and great way to end the meal.



INGREDIENTS:

Pomegranate arils - 1/2cup
Banana – 1
Fresh pomegranate juice – ¼ cup
Chilled plain yogurt – 1cup
Sugar – ¼ cup
Mint springs for garnishing


METHOD:

Prepare juice from one fresh pomegranate. Separate 1/2 cup of the arils from fruit and keep aside.
Cut the bananas into small round shapes.
In a medium-mixing bowl combine yogurt, sugar and blend well. Now add juice and banana and stir well.
Now place the arils into this mixture and refrigerate for 30 mins.
Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and garnish with mint sprigs.

Great recipe. I'm from Poland so we do not use pomegranate so often. Most of the time in salads as you write. But this is very nice and innovative option. Maybe not for a dessert because I never tend to have desserts after meals. But it would be a great refuel after yoga classes.
