Tart Pomegranate Frozen Yogurt

When I was in Paris the other day, I found POM in one of their very few super marches. I remembered that I saw a recipe which uses this in their frozen yogurt recipes, so I bought a bottle of its pomegranate juice. At first, I thought it was a concentrated juice but it's not. It's just like any normal fruit juice minus the sugar and preservatives (I think). I haven't found it here in Malaysia. Maybe there is, maybe there isn't. It was almost 5 euros per bottle, so I'm sure it would be even more expensive if Malaysia were to import it.

Anyways, I really like this fro-yo. I have been wanting to make pomegranate frozen yogurt for ages (a little bit of exaggeration is fine) and now that I have made it, it is really good! The fro-yo is tart with a hint of sweetness. Perfect combination - I can assure you that! I reduced the juice down into a thick syrup prior to mixing it with the greek yogurt, so that the flavour concentrates and would not be too runny. I'd give this recipe another try using whatever pomegranate juice that is available here. I wonder if it tastes the same.
Recipe - Adapted from here.

Ingredients :
  • 1kg greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate syrup (recipe follows)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
Method :
1. Mix all the ingredients together and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions.
2. Serve it immediately or place it in the freezer before serving.

Ingredients (pomengranate syrup) :
  • 3 cups 100% pomegranate juice, such as POM Wonderful
  • 1 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup
Method :
1. Combine pomegranate juice and maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
2. Cook until the mixture has thickened slightly and has reduced to approximately 3/4 cup, about 1 hour.
3. Set aside to cool.
