A breeze to make, this recipe combines chia seeds, which are loaded with protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and heart-healthy pomegranate seeds.

This recipe is: heart healthy, anti-inflammatory, vegetarian, gluten free

Start to finish: 10 minutes, plus 4 hours chill time

Serves 3


  • 1 1/2 cups plain, low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Line a 9-by-13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper, wax paper, or a silicone mat.

Spread the yogurt evenly onto the lined baking sheet, about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle chia and pomegranate seeds on top, gently pressing them into the yogurt.

Freeze for 4–5 hours (or overnight). Break into pieces to eat.


  • Keep frozen in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 2 months. Line with parchment paper between the pieces if needed.
  • A 9-by-13-inch sheet pan will make approximately nine 3-inch-by-4-inch pieces. A serving is 3 pieces.
  • The more liquid added, the icier (and less creamy) the dessert will become when it freezes. Blending in any fresh or frozen fruit will add to the liquid content.
  • Keep frozen and serve immediately out of the freezer. Chilling a plate ahead of time will help keep the dessert cold.
