Pomegranate Slice

pomegranate slice gluten free

I think I have a new favourite thing, and that thing is freeze-dried pomegranate arils. They are sweet, sour and fruity all at the same time! Plus it doesn't hurt that they're also packed with antioxidants and minerals. Fresh arils are beautiful, but freeze-dried ones are perfect for adding to desserts like this raw Pomegranate Slice!

I've been working with PomLife to develop some recipes using their freeze-dried pomegranate products. Their freeze-dried arils are locally produced from high quality 100% Australian grown pomegranate fruit. I studded this creamy raw slice with the arils and they worked really well - little bursts of flavour!
