Last month I posted a Valentine’s Day post with Toasted Coconut Almond Fudge and Almond Delights. The third treat that I made that day was the Cashew Pomegranate Bites. I was looking for a natural ingredient to make some sort of PINK treat for Valentines’s Day, and I came across this pomegranate powder at our local health food store. It is pink. It is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. So I gave it a try. The treats didn’t turn out as pink as I had hoped, but they are delicious. A little sweet. A little tart. And a little chewy. The perfect combination of cashew butter, honey, and pomegranate. I was expecting the Toasted Coconut Fudge to be the favorite around here, but my family actually likes these cashew treats the best.
I made these with hard candy molds, but you can use mini muffin tins as the mold as well. The pop right out once you place them in the freezer for a while.
These treats are best right out of the freezer as they get pretty soft at room temperature. I love yummy treats that are good for you as well. And if you decide to buy the pomegranate powder, you can use it in smoothies as well to add a little nutrient boost. I recently saw these freeze dried strawberries at the camping store and thought that they could work as well if you ground them up. Haven’t tried it yet but definitely worth a try. And please let me know if you do…… ENJOY!!!
