Gelato al Melograno {Pomegranate Gelato}

gelato_pom1_wm

I love summer time. I love the long days, throwing our normally way over scheduled schedule out the window, and kicking back with GELATO! Yes, I could make it everyday {and sometimes we do LOL} My Cuisinart maker is getting quite a workout this summer! She’s one kitchen gadget that has been worth every penny!  I might as well just leave her out on the counter she gets used so often ; )

When it was time to make the newest batch of gelato I knew right away that we wanted to try our hand at making Pomegrante! Our family LOVES Pomegranates. The kids go gaga over them when they’re in season and get a big kick out of peeling them. So I was ecstatic when our favorite Pomegranate company POM Wonderful graciously sent us a complimentary case of POM Wonderful Pomegrante Juice. The bambini quickly downed all of the bottles but 2 {yes, I had to hide those LOL, told you they love the stuff} and that’s what I used for the Gelato al Melograno {Pomegranate Gelato}

I would have loved to have included some Pomegranate seeds for texture but alas they’re not in season yet {good reason to make it again when they’re in season right ; ) }

We decided to serve the gelato in sugar cones which we dipped in a melted chocolate/NUTELLA mixture and just put in the fridge to set up for a few mins. SO tasty! The chocolate/Nutella went smashingly with the Pomegranate flavors!

Don’t put away those machines, you know there will be more gelato coming your way this summer! We’re even going to throw some Sorbetto’s and Granita’s in the mix too!

Baci!

    What a great recipe combination! I’ve never seen it before. Can I share with the POM Community? They’d love to hear about it. I LOVE that your kiddies enjoy the juice, so great to know. Do they do anything with the bottles after?

    Why is it white? I thought it would be more pink…

    • 11.1

      Hi Betsy, I was surprised the color wasn’t darker myself : ) Actually it’s a very light lavender in person. I didn’t want to add any artificial coloring to enhance the color, but it’s full on Pomegranate flavor : )
