Forget traditional roses for Valentines Day, and serve up this icy treat instead! Sweet, tart, and brilliantly purple, this icy treat is delicious served plain or with a spoonful of unsweetened whipped cream. Rose water can be found at major supermarkets - or you could try making your own!

Serves: 4


Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon rose water
Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon


Directions:
Combine juice and sugar in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until sugar dissolves; remove from stove.

Stir in the rose water and lemon juice and let cool.

Pour the mixture into 9 x 9 pan and place in the freezer. Freeze until firm, about 3 hours, scraping the surface with a fork every 30 minutes to create a flaky texture.

Serve immediately.
