Pomegranate Yogurt Fool

Christmas is  now coming to an end and the new year is about to start.  So it’s no surprise that I feel like I’ve been eating solidly for about a week while visiting various family members and in-laws.   But, we’re now finally back at home and I wanted to eat something that still felt a little Christmassy but that would also feel healthy.  Luckily, I came up with this dessert, which looks much richer and more decadent than it really is.   Normally a fool is made of cream and sugar and is not at all healthy.   This fool uses yogurt instead and honey for sweetness.   It still has a tang from the yogurt and pomegranate and if anyone made this for me it would make me very happy.  As it was, I made it myself for me alone and enjoyed every last spoonful.    Indeed, if I had made any more I would have found it quite a challenge to share it.

I am linking this to Torview‘s Food Palette Series White.

Ingredients – Serves 1

4 tbsp yogurt

Seeds from 1 pomegranate

How to make pomegranate Yogurt Fool

1. Mix the honey into the yoghurt.

2. In a wine glass put just under half the pomegranate seeds.  Put half the honey on top.   Add another layer of pomegranate then top with the remaining yogurt.

3. Squeeze a swirl of yogurt onto the top.  Sprinkle on the remaining pomegranate seeds and then top with the chopped brazil nuts.
