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 pomegranate
- ½ cup/120ml water
- 1¼ cup/300g plain yogurt
- 1-2 tablespoons honey
- De-seed the pomegranate and blend the seeds with the water. Strain the mixture in order to get the hard part of the seeds out.
- Blend the pomegranate juice with yogurt and honey and serve cold.
