Serving Size

4 servings


  • ½ cup 100% pomegranate juice
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 large pear, diced (I did not peel)
  • 3 kiwis, peeled and diced
  • ½ cup cut grapes (cut into ¼s or ⅛s, depending on their size–I used large black grapes)
  • 1 large pomegranate, arils removed (about 1½ cups)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons raw honey, to taste (optional)


  1. In a small sauce pan, heat the juice, corn starch, cinnamon, and ginger over medium low heat.
  2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until it becomes a thick syrup, about 8 minutes. Remove it from heat and allow it to cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, dice your fruit and mix it together in a large bowl. When the syrup is cooled, add it to the bowl of fruit.
  4. Add the salt and stir everything until it’s combined.
  5. Taste and add 1-2 tablespoons honey, if desired.
  6. Allow to chill in the refrigerator before serving.
  7. Serve with cinnamon chips. Enjoy!
