Quenching Fizziness

IMG_5884

You like fruity bubbles too? And don’t wish to indulge in bad sugar, maybe you will enjoy me…. the pomegranate spritzer.

You don’t need much:

  • a pomegranate
  • some fresh mint
  • fizzy water

The trick with theses thick skin fruits, is to know how to get into them! And then extract their goodness. This is how to master the de-seeding of this queen.

I like to crush some of the seeds, juice them, it adds that little bit of flavour to the beverage. Fill to 3/4 a glass with soda water, then add some red liquid (not the juice first, other wise you will end up with heaps of foam), finally sprinkle with seeds and mint. Not sweetening it keeps it very refreshing….. but if you really have to, do consider maple syrup or  liquid palm coconut nectar.

Also, did you know, this red goddess if a powerful antioxydant, a natural blood thiner, fights anaemia and so much more?

Plenty of good reasons to get hooked on pomegranate. Crack one open!

Love, seeds and cracked open hearts,

Ladyjo*
