This is a rich creamy, vanilla pudding with sweet pomegranate compote.
We have many and beautiful pomegranate this year.. I know many of you are in summer but in Southern hemisphere we are in winter.
BTW I m freezing some poms seeds and juice to make some desserts for Christmas time.
But you can make with other fruits like blackberries, raspberries or blueberries.

How to freeze pomegranate seeds
Once you have de-seeded your pomegranate, make sure the seeds are dry. Arrangue them in a single layer baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place in freezer for 2 hours or until frozen. Once frozen put them into a freezer bag and store them in the freezer.
Pom seeds and juice can be frozen for up 6 months in airtight containers.
