Servings: 6 servings
Prep time: 30 minutes
Total time: 4 hours 30 minutes (with freezing)
2 cups strawberries, halved and stems removed
2/3 cup cherries, seed removed
1/3 cup 100% Pomegranate juice
1 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
In a small pot add water and heat over medium heat. Next add the sugar to the water. Stir occasionally until sugar is completely dissolved (we will call it our version of a simple syrup). Remove from heat and allow to cool. While cooling add strawberries and cherries to blender and puree. Once the simple syrup is cooled add it along with the lemon juice and pomegranate juice to the strawberries and cherries. Blend together then pour mixture into a 13 x9 inch pan and place in freezer. Ever 30 minutes mix the puree as it begins freezing. Once completely frozen (~ 3-4 hours) you are ready to prepare to serve. Using a fork scrap off clusters for a delicious dessert or snack!
* To save time while simple syrup is cooling remove stems from strawberries and seeds from cherries*
