Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Pom Berry Sauce

1 WWPP Posted by 6 years ago 4 Comments

I love having a houseful of people willing to be experimented on! My in-laws were in town this weekend and unlike the husband they appreciate my food ideas. :) This was the second experiment I tried out on them, I’ll post the other one later this week.

The first idea is a simple sauce. The great people over at POM sent me a case of Pomegranate Juice. I was totally psyched as I LOVE pomegranates and totally miss them when there are out of season. The juice, albeit not the same, is a great way to get that pom fix. Today I used just a bit to make a simple sauce for my pancakes. You can totally use it on anything, really. I’m thinking a little Breyer’s Free with this topping with be summer go to. :~)Pom Berry Sauce

  • 1/4 cup (2 oz) of 100% pomegranate juice
  • 1 tbsp low sugar strawberry jelly
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 tbsp whole wheat flour

Put all ingredients in a small pot and whisk over medium high heat. Bring to a boil. The sauce will thicken. Lower to a simmer until ready to use. If the sauce becomes too thick whisk in a splash of water.

The nutritional info is a bit tough as the amount will vary based on how much water you add an how thick you like it. I was able to get at least 4 tbsp so I’ll base it on that.

    I added just a little more sweet to this and it was delicious on our weekend 1-point pancakes. And now I'm thinking of other juices/jams to use . . .Thanks!! Reply
