POM….just for breakfast?

August 17, 2010

A few weeks ago, Ryan from POM Wonderful shot an e-mail my way offering a free case of juice. (Thanks again, Ryan!) I was anxious to get my juice because I’d never had it before. Being the cheap arse student that I am, I didn’t want to buy it in case I didn’t like it – the stuff is expensive around here!

When I returned home from my Florida trip with the fam, I found our fantabulous house sitting friend had placed a ginormous box in the fridge. I thought maybe when Ryan said they were offering me a case they’d send 3 or 4 bottles. But they sent me 8! Win.

So I’ve been busy experimenting with POM lately. The fails include:

-POM pancakes

-POM + coffee

-POM french toast

Apparently I’m in a breakfast-y rut with this juice. Anyone got any recipes I can try that don’t involve oatmeal?

I ask because the successes include:

-Girlie Pink and Purple Oatmeal

1/4 cup oats, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup POM, flax seeds, blueberries.

It’s quite feminine.

-POMsicles

Fill your popsicle molds halfway with pomegranate juice and fill the other half with something sweet to balance the tartness. I used mango juice…om nom nom.

-Fruit Oatmeal Bars

2 cups oats, strawberries, blueberries, banana, mango, POM juice, and flaxseed.

Combine all ingredients in a big bowl and then spread into a flat layer on a baking sheet. It should be quite sticky – if it isn’t, add more flax to help things stay together. Bake at  350 for about an hour, or until the edges are crisp.

-POM parfait

All I did was soak the strawberries in POM (not kahlua this time, sorry :P) and mix some into the yogurt as well. Then layered it up and enjoyed.

Overall, I really love this pomegranate juice. Straight up, it’s a little tart for my taste so I like mixing it with mango juice. I love the color it gives to things, the health benefits, and the great generosity of the company doesn’t hurt either. 😉

Have you ever tried POM Wonderful? What’s your favorite way to use it?

    I’ve never tried POM juice, but heard lots of good things about it.
    Where my hubby grew up in Louisiana, he had a pomegranate tree in his yard! How cool would that be?

    I;ve had POM when my mom bought it, but not for awhile. It’s so damn expensive!

    Those pomsicles look hella awesome though!! And I love the idea of mixing it w/ mango juice! Anything mango makes my heart flutter.


  3. I’ve never tried using POM in baked goods or oats. I’m a big fan of it in hot green tea. Works wonders for a cold, so definitely keep some around.

    I haven’t tried POM wonderful yet but have been really wanting to. Though one time I did have POM frozen yogurt at Red Mango and that was delicious! The POM popsicles sound really good.


  5. I have had POM. I had a case like yours! and I agree…WIN! I made pomaritas with it. (like margarita?) 🙂 I don’t mind the tart taste, I’m just not a big juice drinker, I would rather drink water and eat my calories. I LOVE the idea of the pomsicles, though! My kids might even eat those…:)

    Okay, so google reader is NOT telling me when you update. Dude, wth, Google? -.- Sorry for the late reply!

    I’ve never tried POM, but I’m not sure if I’d like it — however, your versatile recipes makes it sound like it’d be yummy in just about anything!
