In Season Eats: Quick Pomegranate Cheesecake

Ever since I brought home a Costco-sized pack of pomegranates, I’ve become a little obsessed and started throwing these little cuties into everything: tossed into salads, stirred into oatmeal, blended into smoothies, mixed into desserts and shoved straight up into my mouth for a quick snack. Pomegranate seeds {or arils} are itty-bitty, crunchy, juicy and sweet little bites of healthy goodness that come into season right around this time of the year! They taste delicious and happen to be chock full of antioxidants, Vitamin C and several of the B Vitamins.

While browsing the BHG website, I came across this Quick Strawberry Cheesecake recipe. It’s a sophisticated take on a no-bake free form cheesecake that takes about 20 minutes to pull together start to finish. Totally do-able for anyone…even through this busy holiday season!

For this recipe, you simply mix a combination of cream cheese and brie cheese together with a little sugar and lemon juice. Then you layer that ‘cheesecake’ into cute little cups with strawberries {or in this case pomegranates} and some butter toffee glazed almonds. I didn’t feel like buying or making these special almonds so I added a little more sugar to my cheesecake layer and used toasted plain almonds instead. Still tasted sweet, creamy and refreshing! Not bad for 20 minutes of work!

The recipe also mentions that you can add a drizzle of honey as well. I thought it was sweet enough without, but it’s totally up to you!

You can find the printable version of this recipe here.

Happy Holidays!

  1. …less sweet is better and if you rally love pomegranate try mixing it with mashed avocado and a tiny bit of salt and lemon! Fantastic
