Product Review: POM Wonderful

Five months ago I had the opportunity to review POM Wonderful pomegranate juice and I loved it!  In fact, I made my first smoothie with POM Wonderful and my kids loved it.  So when I got the opportunity to receive more of the juice, I jumped.  Rather than making another smoothie, I decided to make rice pudding with it.  Yeah, I know!  Rice pudding, yum.

Rice pudding makes a delicious breakfast dish and is a great substitute for cold cereal. Or can be a nice dessert, serve cold with a dollop of whipped cream.

Rice Pudding
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup POM Wonderful pomegranate juice
1 cup quick~cooking brown rice
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup skim milk
2 medium~size cooking apples, peeled, cored and diced
1/4 cup raisins or cranberries
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 large egg
Nutmeg or granola for garnish

1. In a medium~size saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups of the water, the POM Wonderful pomegranate juice, rice and salt; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, for 15 minutes or until the rice is tender. Add the milk, apples, raisins (or cranberries), sugar and cinnamon; return to a simmer and cook, uncovered, 15 minutes more, stirring occasionally.

2. Beat the egg and the remaining 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Stir about 1/2 cup of the rice mixture into the egg, then stir the egg mixture into the saucepan and simmer for 1 minute, stirring. Sprinkle with nutmeg or granola if desired. Will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Makes four 1~cup servings.

This recipe was adapted from a recipe found in the Reader’s Digest Live Longer Cookbook. You can find more recipes by going to the POM Wonderful website (click here).  For information about the health benefits of POM Wonderful, go here.

Disclosure:  I received the POM Wonderful samples free from POM Wonderful in exchange for a review.

    I have never eaten rice pudding for breakfast but I have enjoyed it as a late night snack. Yours look really tasty. I also remember growing up and snatching pomegranate from off the tree in my grandmother’s backyard. It has been awhile since and I haven’t been fortunate to try the juice mentioned. Thanks for bringing back the childhood memories.

      Wow, fresh pomegranate! How nice. I always associate food with people and memories too. Rice pudding is one of those comfort foods that just makes you think of family. I enjoy sharing my quirky spin on foods ~ hope you enjoy it.

    This is a wonderful recipe I have ever found in my life. Frankly speaking I have never heard of rice being cooked with pomegranate juice. So it is new to me. I love pomegranate juice and so I’m sure to try this out. Bye.

      The POM Wonderful gives it a reddish tint but it’s still pretty good. My kids liked it and they are the toughest judges.
