Embracing a Healthy Family: POM Wonderful Flan With POM Syrup Recipe

POM Wonderful Flan With POM Syrup Recipe

 100% Pomegranate


All I can say is I love POM Wonderful's 100% Pure Pomegranate Juice!  It tastes great and it's really good for you as cited clinical research backs up the science behind this ancient known fruit.  In fact, per POM Wonderful's website, it is the only one backed by $34 million in medical research.

In my pursuit for a healthier life since my birthday has passed and I'm not getting any younger, I am constantly looking for ways to jazz up recipes and eat healthier in a fun way.  POM Wonderful has these great looking recipes that I'm going to try with complimentary POM Wonderful Pomegranates Juice I received.  The recipes are fun, look pretty and have some good ingredients.

In case you didn't know POM Wonderful makes other products such as their very own grown pomegranates, various types of juice, POMx Tea, POMx Iced Coffee, POMx Antioxidant Recovery, POMx Pills, POMx Bars and POMx Shots.  I like that I have a choice in how I want to consume POM Wonderful whether it's via fruit, juice, pills, bars and shots.

Ingredients

  1. Juice from 2-3 large POM Wonderful Pomegranates to make 1/3 cup POM Syrup* or 1 cup POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
  2. 4 large eggs
  3. 2 1/4 cups milk or half-and-half
  4. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  5. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  6. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  7. Garnish (optional): Fresh pomegranate arils from 1 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate, orange slices or berries

Preparation


  1. Preheat oven to 325F; bring a kettle of water to boil for the water bath.
  2. Place 6-oz. flan cups in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk eggs together; add milk, sugar, vanilla and salt until blended. Ladle flan mixture into each cup.
  4. Place baking pan on middle oven rack; carefully pour boiling water around cups in pan to a depth of 1 inch.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center of flans comes out clean.
  6. Carefully remove pan from oven; with tongs, transfer cups to a cooling rack. Cool; then refrigerate at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours, before serving.
  7. To serve, loosen flans around edges of each cup with a table knife. Place a dessert plate over each flan cup and invert onto plate.
  8. Prepare garnish - Score 1 fresh pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate underwater to free the arils (seed sacs). The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top. Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl and set aside. (Refrigerate or freeze remaining arils for another use.)
  9. Spoon 1 tablespoon POM Syrup* over each flan. Garnish with pomegranate arils, orange slices or berries as desired.

Note

*To prepare POM Syrup, cut 2-3 POM Wonderful Pomegranates in half and juice using a citrus reamer or juicer to measure 1 cup, or use 1 cup of POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice. Combine juice and 3/4 cup of sugar in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes until reduced to 1/2 cup, stirring frequently.
