Ginger-Infused Yogurt with Honey and Pomegranate

We all know that pomegranate is charged with antioxidants that have a similar effect on free radicals as a raging bull has on innocent bystanders, sending them running for cover. But how do we muster this pomegranate bloodbath in a practicable manner? Well, this recipe is my answer, and it achieves for the taste buds what a ‘kick in the ass’ would do for me.

We all know that pomegranate is charged with antioxidants that have a similar effect on free radicals as a raging bull has on innocent bystanders, sending them running for cover. But how do we muster this pomegranate bloodbath in a practicable manner? Well, this recipe is my answer, and it achieves for the taste buds what a ‘kick in the ass’ would do for me.

Each and every mouthful bursts full of sweet and sour pomegranate pearls, combined with ambrosial honey-and-ginger yogurt that bites. A marvellous, antioxidising breakfast treat that’s ready to eat at the ‘speed of light’; it regulates blood sugar levels, soothes a feisty tummy and will even help you look your best. What more can one ask for? And, if you’re a wimp or simply not looking for too much excitement first thing in the morning, you can always replace the pomegranate with blueberries or dried fruit and nuts. SERVES 2

• 1 pomegranate
• 10 fluid ounce natural yogurt
• 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
• 6 teaspoons honey

1. Cut the pomegranate in quarters. Using your hands or a teaspoon, gently scoop out the seeds and set aside.

2. In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, ginger and 2 teaspoons of the honey, stirring until smooth.

3. Pour the mixture into bowls serving glasses. Top with the pomegranate seeds and remaining honey and serve.
