Welcome to the home of the best cheesecake ever. I'm referring to your home of course! As soon as you make this, you'll be famous. I'm fairly certain this pomegranate cheesecake is what Rachel and Chandler ate off the floor in season 7 of Friends. It's that good.
By the way, if you didn't get that reference you can watch the episode while this beauty bakes. Just don't drop this one on the floor. It doesn't add to the flavor. Take my word for it.
Our friends over at Skylake Ranch make some amazing sauces from their pomegranate orchards. This recipe is lucky enough to be drizzled with their Pomegranate Syrup! Be sure to pick up a bottle at the farmer's market if you live locally or order through the link above. I absolutely adore finding you great deals and great food. This is both. The natural sweetness of pomegranates means they don't add very much sugar to their sauces, making them lower on the glycemic index. Plus you get the benefits of pomegranates! I'm talking vitamin c, folic acid, vitamin e, and punicalagin just to name a few.
Let's jump right into this mouth-watering treat.
First I made the crust. This is my gluten free graham cracker recipe. I made the dough for the graham crackers, then used about 1/3 of the dough and pressed it on my greased spring form cake pan. I baked the crust at 350° for 9 minutes.
While that baked I grabbed 2 glass bowls; one large and one medium.
In the medium bowl I poured 4 egg whites. Then I beat them with a hand mixer until they were like a thick foam. It took me about 3 minutes, so be patient.
In the large bowl I mixed the cream cheese with the egg yolks, coconut sugar, vanilla and tapioca flour.
Gently folding in the egg whites can be tricky in the sense that you want to completely mix it in, but not over mix. My trick is to count. I counted 20 folds, then checked to see how the filling looked.
Everything checked out so I poured the filling into the cake pan, which had just come out of the oven a moment before.
The magnificence that is cheesecake took 45 minutes to bake. If you aren't sure, wiggle it slightly. The middle will be cooked all the way through and have minimal to no wiggle when it's done.
Now for the best part! Once the cheesecake has cooled, drizzle the pomegranate syrup over it. The red really pops here. This will make a great dessert for Valentine's Day!
1/4 of the [graham cracker recipe|http://sweetestlemonade.com/paleo-graham- crackers/] uncooked
2 packages cream cheese, room temperature
4 eggs, separated
1 T lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup [tapioca flour|http://amzn.to/2kzECjR]
1/2 cup [Skylake Ranch Pomegranate Syrup|https://www.skylakeranch.com/]
Preheat the oven to 350°. Spread approximately 1/4 of the graham cracker batter into the greased cake pan.
You can easily use the rest of the batter for graham crackers or just make less of the dough by cutting the amounts in half or quarters. As you press the dough into the pan, make sure it is about 1/2 inch thick.
Bake for 8-9 minutes.
While the crust is baking, set out a medium bowl and a large bowl.
In the large bowl combine the cream cheese, coconut sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, and tapioca flour.
Mix well. Now add in 4 egg yolks. Keep the whites of the eggs and put those into the medium bowl. For a perfect texture, use a hand mixer or kitchen aide.
In the medium bowl blend the 4 egg whites on high for 2-3 minutes, just until peaks form.
Fold the egg whites into the cream cheese filling. Stir with a rubber or wooden spatula.
Once the crust is done, pour the filling over it and bake for 45 minutes at 325°.
Check to make sure it's cooked through.
Once cooled, pour the pomegranate syrup over the top.
Serve immediately or chill in the fridge.

This is the original grenadine formula from pomegranate juice. Pomegranate Grenadine is made from our wonderful pomegranates that are hand harvested from our family-owned orchard in Northern California.

INGREDIENTS: Pomegranate Juice, Water, Sugar, Lemon Juice.
Start by making sure you have a big enough container for the iced tea. A large pitcher or gallon jar work perfectly. For porch tea, pour water into the jar and add the tea bags. You can easily do this with green tea too. We tried it and like both! For inside tea, heat the water in a tea kettle or large pot to nearly boiling, then pour in the jar with the tea bags.
Porch tea needs to steep for about 2-4 hours depending on how hot of a day it is. Inside tea can steep for 10 minutes.
Once steeped, remove the tea bags from the water.
Add in the grenadine and ice.
Use your optional add ins.

Tip: Depending on the sweetness of the lemons, add more sugar if needed. Also, for an adult kick add 1/2 cup of vodka or white rum (no judgement from us).
This is a quick and healthy appetizer that will keep you going back for more. It’s spicy, tangy, sweet and savory, all the things your mouth craves.
In a saute pan over medium high heat, heat oil. Add all other ingredients and continue stirring until the mixture gets bubbly and edamame pods are tender. About 10 to 12 minutes. Pour on a plate and serve warm with a sprinkle of kosher salt.
This is a very vertical recipe. You can use any fish you like; Tilapia, halibut, shrimp or even fish sticks! I understand you don’t really need a recipe for this. Basically you put the pepper jelly on the corn tortilla, top it with your ingredients of choice and gobble it up. But if you want a recipe….here it is.
Skylake Ranch Pomegranate Pepper Jelly
In a small bowl combine shrimp, garlic. oil, salt and lime juice. Let marinade while you prepare the slaw.
For the slaw, combine all ingredients and set aside.
Heat a pan at medium high heat and add the shrimp. Cook only a minute or too.
Top a warmed tortilla with 1 tablespoon of pomegranate pepper jelly, slaw and shrimp. Enjoy!
Note: I like to lightly fry my tortillas then sprinkle with powdered parmesan.
Spinach Salad with Grilled Asparagus
The grilled asparagus is nice with the crisp and cool tomatoes and spinach, a great combo for a summers BBQ.
1/2 lb. of baby spinach (about a half a bag)
1 pound of asparagus
1 tablespoon of canola oil
3 roma tomatoes, sliced
2 tablespoons of Skylake Ranch Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar
6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste.
Trim asparagus so the tender ends remain (I bent the asparagus and it will naturally break where the tender end starts) and toss with canola oil and salt and pepper to taste.
Heat grill on high and place asparagus on grill until cooked through for about 4 to 5 minutes.
In salad bowl mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
Toss vinaigrette with spinach and tomatoes.
Lay the asparagus in top of the salad and serve.
To prep I simply marinate the chicken overnight in this pomegranate marinade, grill (or oven bake) the chicken the next morning!

This classic drink is now back with a "real" grenadine! Adding the Pomegranate Grenadine will give this drink a new dimension and as always create a great colorful cocktail.
From brunch to celebrations, this drink knows how to party. The simple ingredients make this recipe attainable for any novice who can find their way into the kitchen. Begin by pouring the tequila into the bottom of your glass. Now add in the orange juice. Once those two have mixed completely, pour in the pomegranate grenadine. Watching the colors sift while the grenadine sinks to the bottom is half the fun. Optional: Try adding ice and a few pomegranate arils for pop and color. Some people like to garnish the side of the glass with citrus like oranges or pineapples. This drink pairs nicely with breakfast type foods like waffles, quiches and sausage. My friends and I enjoyed some homemade biscotti, eggs and sausage with our tequila sunrises just the other day. I love it
with a salad as well.
Buttery, moist and simply delicious. These are great cookies for holiday parties, baby showers, cocktail parties or just have a party so you can make these scrumptious treats! Makes 2 dozen cookies.
Cream the butter and sugar on high speed for about 3 minutes.
Separate the eggs. Add the yolks and vanilla extract to the butter mixture.
Add the flour and salt. Mix until just combined. Place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes and preheat the oven to 350F.
Roll the dough into balls about 1 inch in diameter. Place the balls on parchment lined cookie sheets.
Press down with your thumb to make a small well in the center of the cookie. Do not press too hard or the cookie will fall apart. Fill with 1/2 teaspoon of Skylake Ranch Pomegranate Fruit Spread.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until slightly firm. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet to firm up before moving them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Tip: If you don’t want to use your thumb, (I have big thumbs so the cookies just don’t look as petit as they should) us the bottom of the 1/2 teaspoon. It makes a perfect circle for the fruit spread to go into.
Did you know that 78% of American families are cooking 5 or more times a week? For a “cook real food at home” enthusiast like me this is so encouraging! I hear so much about families eating out more and more, or that traditional cooking at home families are dying out. So no true!!
We eat out once a week, depending on what’s going on in our lives. The rest is completely at home, and 90% or more is made from scratch. This lifestyle sounds like a lot of work to some, but it’s really simple! I strategize by cooking a few things ahead of time on Sunday afternoons. Grilled chicken, brown rice and hard boiled eggs are just a few that get made once a week to save time during the week. To read more about meal planning, check out this blog post.
Coconut oil is a great way to prep cake pans. I’ve learned the beautiful art of cooking with real, whole ingredients and allowing for time in my day to do so. Part of what had to happen is I needed to slow down on the “rush” mentality. The idea that we need everything now- and can’t wait more than 5 minutes for our meals to be ready to eat. I now enjoy the methodical time it takes to create an amazing dish, and how simple it can be in the process. I’m convinced that anyone can cook – and I’m not just talking about chicken nuggets and tater tots.
These little chocolate cakes are the perfect example. I made these a few times to get the ingredients and baking time just right, but I enjoyed the whole process! My kids had no complaints about the multiple batches either.
Warm chocolate pudding cakes are a great for a coffee date or a decadent dessert. They are gluten free too! The presentation is so fun to see. I made them in 2 different pans. One is a ramekin, which is a small little oven safe dish. When you flip the cakes out of the ramekins, the pudding on the bottom stays in liquid form and pours perfectly oven the cake. I found a great price on a set of ramekins here. I also used a pan of mine that makes little cakes in batches of 6. They look like mini bundt cakes, but without the hole in the middle. When making the recipe in this pan, the pudding layer cooked through, giving a 2tone affect when the cake is flipped over. Here’s the pan I use for the mini fluted cakes.
Warm Chocolate Pudding Cake Yield: 8 mini cakes
• 1/2 cup pomegranate jelly
• 1/2 cup heavy cream
• 3 oz dark chocolate
• 1/2 cup boiling water
• 1/3 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
• 1/4 cup heavy cream
• 1/2 tsp vanilla
• 1/3 cup pomegranate jelly
• 1/2 cup brown rice flour
• 1/2 cup cassava flour
• 3/4 tsp baking soda
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 1 stick butter, softened
• 2/3 cup coconut sugar
• 2 eggs
1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray the mini cake pans or ramekins with coconut spray.
For the pudding
1. In a medium saucepan, heat the pudding ingredients until all one consistency. This takes about 3 minutes.
2. Remove from heat and pour off in the bottom of the pans.
For the cake
1. In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Use a spatula or hand mixer to blend well.
2. Scoop the batter into the cake pans on top of the pudding.
3. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
4. Check the center of the cakes for doneness. Don't worry if there is liquid on the sides, that's the pudding.
5. Allow to cool for 30 minutes before flipping onto your desired serving plate.
