Pomegranate Cooler

I love pomegranate but the only thing that deters me is to remove the seeds and then enjoy. As a child my dad use to remove the seeds from pomegranate and I use to feast. I mean yes, literally feast. I remember my brother and sister saying if you want pomegranate to finish keep it in front of her…aaahhh I miss those days. But now that’s not the case I do not enjoy it as earlier.

Anyways coming back to my recipe, I had bought this pomegranate specially to prepare a slush after I saw it from one of my friends post on Facebook group. Though I did not make a slush but made whatever came to my mind on that day.  I did a mojito without alcohol and followed one step same from her recipe. I first pureed the pomegranate and then freezed it. I should have filtered it to remove the seeds, I did not do that as I think filtering juices removes the fibers and the health benefits of the fruit, but it was needed in this recipe. I then defrosted it for a couple of mins, and then started scraping the pomegranate puree so that I get that icy or slush like texture. Then in a glass I added some crushed mint, then the pomegranate ice, half a teaspoon of black salt and then finally sparkling water or soda. That’s it you are done. Enjoyed it thoroughly in this hot summer..
