Pomegranate season is here! This colorful and healthy fruit is versatile in so many recipes from main courses to dessert.
Here is a very simple dessert using pomegranate juice which you can find in almost any market. I blended pitted dates with the juice to add some natural sweetness and creaminess to the coconut milk mixture. The chocolate chips is optional, but I like the crunch it adds. You can also mix in some fresh pomegranate seeds to the ice cream – though I prefer to just use the seeds as a garnish when I serve it.
You’re just three ingredients and twenty minutes away from this decadent treat – so get out your ice cream makers and enjoy this dairy-free pomegranate ice cream!
