Thanksgiving Dessert: Cranberry-Pomegranate Granita

My kids are obsessed with Italian ices, frozen treats and popsicles. I thought, “Why not create a Thanksgiving dessert that would be refreshing, tasty and one that they would go wild over?” I started with Cran-Apple juice (which is their favorite), added some POM pomegranate juice (my favorite) and ginger-ale (everyone’s favorite). It came out great, and it was an instant hit. What a fun idea for Thanksgiving or anytime during the holiday season or year!

Shirley Temples with Fresh Cherries


My three kids are the best, and I try to treat them with something new and different all of the time from the kitchen. I came up with the idea of a healthier version of Shirley Temples using pomegranate-cherry juice 100% juice and fresh cherries. This recipe is so simple, and they love it! It’s perfect for this time of year when cherries are in abundance.
