Instructions

To make the yogurt mousse...

  1. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup of pomegranate juice. Mix quickly and set aside to bloom.
  2. Heat 1/2 cup remaining pomegranate juice in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  3. Once barely boiling, add juice in the saucepan to bloomed gelatin juice. Whisk to combine.
  4. Add honey and yogurt. Combine well.
  5. Pour into glasses or Mason jars. To make slanted yogurt as pictured, set wine glasses in a muffin pan at an angle. Or, you can use a deep square dish -- simply cover the dish with a hand towel so that there are wells in the towel for the cups to rest at an angle.
  6. Gently transfer to refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

  4. Add honey, lemon juice, and pomegranate arils. Combine well.
  5. Place in ice bath for 5 minutes to chill. Watch carefully that it doesn't set (if it does, simply place it back on the stove to thin slightly).
  6. Gently spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of the pomegranate sauce on top of the yogurt mousse. Transfer the cups back to the fridge for at least 15 minutes, then serve and enjoy!
