What strikes me about this recipe is that all three major ingredients are rich in antioxidants. It is a powerhouse of nutrients! Blueberries, cranberries and pomegranates all rank high in the quantity of antioxidants present in each berry or seed. That is actually what I had in mind when I was putting together this very simple dessert (or breakfast if you want to start your day with it). I also wanted it to be something simple and quick enough to prepare in just few minutes. I have to face it. I already joined the ranks of the mothers whom I see rushing to the school with perennial flustered looks.
Making the pomegranate syrup requires a few minutes of your time. But that only entails simmering after you put them all together in the pan. Plus you can also use the pomegranate syrup anywhere and anytime. Just drizzle it on any food that you think it goes well with. It is goes perfectly well with everything anyway! Of course you can also buy the bottled ones but like with any kind of food, if you can do it effortlessly, then go for it because you get to keep the nutrients more in homemade ones.
