Glittery Jewels

2016 Kids Recipe Challenge Winning Recipe: 1st Place!  [Breakfast]

Kasey in Toronto created this recipe, which looks just like a piece of sparkling jewelry.  She says it has a great range of flavours and textures – creamy, juicy, sweet, crunchy and minty.

The judges all agreed that this breakfast was so pretty! The pomegranates look like garnets nestled amongst the range of flavours and textures of fruit. Kids can help peel, seed and sprinkle to get this on the table to share.
