Pomegranate Pudding

Depending on the color of your pomegranate juice, this pudding can turn out to be different shades of pink or dark purple.


  • 3 tablespoons Minute® tapioca
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 3/4 cup 1% low-fat milk or fat-free half-and-half
  • 1 egg, beaten (use a higher omega-3 type, if available)
  • 4 teaspoons Splenda®
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Combine tapioca, sugar, and cinnamon (if using) in medium nonstick saucepan. Stir in pomegranate juice, low-fat milk, and beaten egg. Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil (it will thicken as it cools). Remove from heat; stir in the Splenda® and vanilla extract.
  3. Cool 20-30 minutes. Stir and spoon into 4 serving cups. Serve warm or chilled.
