Pomegranate Lassi | My Little Gourmet

Since my parents are in town right now visiting us, we’ve been doing a lot of eating out. The other day we went to a Vietnamese restaurant, where Arik, by the way, ate two large summer rolls with tofu and fish sauce…sometimes I am amazed at what that kid eats. Anyway, I ordered Arik and myself a mango lassi to share to see it it would be something he likes. My question was quickly answered when I gave him the glass, blinked, and the whole thing was basically gone. So much for sharing. :) After getting such positive feedback from him, I decided to make him a lassi at home, with pomegranate instead of mango.

I already told you guys about our current pomegranate obsession in my Chicken Salad post, which is also where you can find  easy step-by-step instructions on how to de-seed a pomegranate. So I thought, why not turn those delicious little seeds into a lassi! And I am so glad I did…it was sooo good. Since pomegranates can be a little on the sour side, I went ahead and added some honey. If that is still not sweet enough for your kids you could always toss some mango in there to sweeten things up. Alright, next mission: a homemade kid-friendly summer roll… :)

  1. I’m with you-pomegranate is amazing! I love it in yogurt and this drink looks perfect!

  2. What a healthy treat! My girls love smoothies, so I bet they would both love this too. My youngest eats like a truck driver. My husband and I are in constant awe of all the food she consumes…must just be that they need that much ‘fuel’ to grow. :-D
