One of the hardest parts of being a new vegan (or even an old seasoned vegan) is trying to keep up with all the new products out there. I must have spent over $50 looking for the "right" vegan cheese my first year being a vegan and I have over 50 vegan/vegetarian cookbooks in my arsenal but not all the recipes are the greatest. I’m the first born so I’m used to being a Guinea Pig and now I’m your Vegan Guinea Pig. So here are my recommendations and critiques. Let me know what you think!

Pomegranate Lemonade

A few months ago the folks over a POM Wonderful sent me a case of 100% Pomegranate Juice. The trouble is, outside of my morning glass of Calcium Fortified OJ, I don’t drink juice. I prefer to reserve my calories for cocktails, good food, and the occasional cookie or cupcake. So the juice just sat in my fridge, day after day, waiting for me to drink it. When I had guest over I offered them pomegranate juice but it seemed that no one was particularly interested. So I put on my culinary thinking cap and decided to switch things up a bit and make an all purpose Sweet and Spicy Pomegranate Sauce and Pomegranate Lemonade (with and without liquor).

The summer is coming to a close but the weather just seems to be heating up around here so it’s definitely still fresh squeezed lemonade season and this recipe for Pomegranate Lemonade couldn’t be simpler.

Pomegranate Lemonade:
Makes 5 cups

4 cups fresh squeezed lemonade
1 cup POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice

Stir the two together and you had a refreshing summer treat. To add a little fizz to your lemonade you can also add 1 cup club soda and to make it an adult beverage you can add 1 shot of vodka to each cup of lemonade.


  1. If you still have extra pom juice...I think there's a recipe for Pomegranate BBQ sauce in Veganomicon :)

  2. I will definitely have to try this, haven't had pomegranate juice before- aside from the seeds I ate as a kid:)
