Pomegranate is another fruit that we bring regularly. I use it regularly to garnish my salads (fruit or vegetable) or in curds rice. Anywhere, it imparts more taste to the food. Of late, I am extracting juice and using it in a couple of desserts. It tastes awesome. Presenting to you “pomegranate mousse”.

Benefits of pomegranate are many. It is  one of the healthiest foods. It consists of fibre, proteins, Vitamin C, Vitamin K , folate and potassium. Pomegranate consists of punicalagine and punicic acid, two unique substances which are found only in this fruit.

The arils (seeds) are sweet and  eaten likewise. The juice is also healthy as it has many  medicinal uses.

Regular intake of this fruit is found to help prevent prostrate and breast cancer. It helps to reduce the blood pressure and may also reduce the risk of heart diseases.  It has anti inflammatory properties. It may help in improving the memory.

One can eat pomegranate arils as a snack. Apart from that, do give a try to this recipe.
