Pomegranate Yogurt Bowl

A simple breakfast yogurt bowl made with Greek yogurt, fresh pomegranate juice, puffed quinoa cereal, toasted sunflower seeds, and honey.

Pomegranate Yogurt Bowl

I'm hoping this breakfast yogurt bowl sets the tone for my entire day. I love the pretty pomegranate swirl intertwined with ribbons of a Turkish black pine honey a friend gifted me. There are little puffed BBs of quinoa, toasted sunflower seeds, some bee pollen, and creamy clouds of Greek yogurt. It was a fluke, with everything just falling into place after I reached for the pomegranate juice leftover from my ongoing juicing experiment.

Pomegranate Yogurt Bowl: Extra Credit

I can imagine cooking down a bunch of the fresh pomegranate juice to make a thick homemade pomegranate molasses the next time around, although I love the brightness of the fresh juice and the way it tangles with the honey and yogurt.

How To Make Fresh Pomegranate Juice

The quickest way I’ve found to juice a pomegranate is to cut it in half or quarters. Use a citrus juicer, I like the hand squeeze type, to press the juice out.

So, for today, it’s just a quick hi, and this bit of inspiration to make your breakfast pretty, tasty, and special.

Pomegranate Yogurt Bowl

5 from 2 votes

After some experimenting with the electric juicer, I came to the conclusion that pomegranates are best juiced by hand. Use a basic citrus reamer and juice it as you would an orange. Strain, and you're set. This recipe is written for an individual bowl, but I'm absolutely going to make a big, family-style version of this for the next brunch I have.

Ingredients
  • For each bowl:
  • a big dollop of Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh pomegranate juice
  • a drizzle of honey
  • a handful of puffed quinoa crisps (or other cereal/granola)
  • sprinkling of toasted sunflower seeds
  • optional: whole pomegranate seeds or fresh/dried rose petals, a bit of bee pollen
Instructions
  1. In a shallow bowl swirl the pomegranate juice and honey into the yogurt just a bit, sprinkle with cereal, and sunflower seeds, and then finish with crushed rose petals and bee pollen (if you're using either of those).

Quinoa plus greek yogurt, what a winning combo. I like the pomegranate juice too. As a bodybuilder, this is a superb recipe. Quinoa provides good carbs for muscle growth, and is higher in protein than oats or rice. Thanks for sharing this.
