Pomegranate Soufflé

After a long hiatus I finally found the time to return to blogging and decided to start the new year on a sweet note.
Pomegranate Souffle

 

This is another one of my quick and easy dessert recipes which can be whipped up in under 15 minutes. It’s not exactly a soufflé in the strict sense of the word but I decided to name it thus since it has a light and airy texture like a soufflé. You can say it’s a no-bake, eggless soufflé.

The recipe can be easily tweaked to make other fruit flavored souffles. I have tried it with orange juice and orange jelly crystals to make Orange Souffle and it tasted equally delicious.

  1. I think the name of your dessert is misleading. A soufflé is more like a cake that is baked. This is more of a frozen dessert.

  2. Yes, you are right that technically, soufflés are sweet or savory French baked dishes containing eggs. However, in modern cuisine and parlance no-bake, eggless desserts have often been termed as soufflés because of their light, airy texture just the way traditional New York Style baked cheesecakes as well as no-bake, eggless cheesecakes are both referred to as cheesecakes.
    If you do an Internet search for terms as such as mango soufflé, no-bake orange soufflé etc. you will find many similar recipes which do not contain eggs and do not need to be baked in ramekins.
