One of my favorite things about having a large dining room is hosting my family & friends over for parties. There really is nothing better than enjoying good food with good company! We have quite a few celebrations coming up over the next few months: birthdays, holidays, and just-because occasions! This year, I am so excited to serve my guests a fun, festive dessert: a delicious Pomegranate Cashew Milk Parfait made with Sahale Snacks Naturally Pomegranate Flavored Pistachios Glazed Mix.

Pomegranate Cashew Milk Parfait

pomegranate-parfaits

When I think of family parties I attended as a kid, there are two things that must come out after the main course is complete. What did we always serve with the dessert round? Coffee and nuts! Yes, I remember multiple small bowls throughout the buffet table filled with cashews, peanuts, pistachios, and more. Sometimes the nuts were candied. Sometimes they were salted. Sometimes they were raw. One thing was for sure: they were always delicious! You could say nuts hold a somewhat nostalgic place in my heart. Since I love putting my own spin on recipes, I’m super excited to incorporate Sahale Snacks in a fun dessert recipe that’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser this season!

Before I get to the recipe, can I just say that these are delicious straight out of the bag, too? I will sometimes pair these nuts with a mocha coffee- the crunch is truly irresistible. By the way, Sahale Snacks are certified to be gluten-free. That’s great because a few guests that visit my house during the holidays are sensitive to gluten.

I also like to bring the bag with me outdoors so I can snack on them while I’m watching the kids play in the backyard. Did you know that Sahale Snacks are Non-GMO Project Verified and Kosher? I love that this company takes into account so many different dietary needs and preferences.

Last week, during my weekly trip to Stop & Shop to stock up on some household groceries, I picked up two varieties of Sahale Snacks: Naturally Pomegranate Flavored Pistachios Glazed Mix and Tangerine Vanilla Cashew-Macadamia Glazed Mix. They’re both incredibly delicious and have the perfect balance of textures & flavors. This fall, be sure to add some of these snacks to your next party!

I recently found out there are quite a number of other varieties available at the store. I can’t wait to try the Valdosta Pecans Glazed Mix, Naturally Pomegranate Vanilla Flavored Cashews Glazed Mix and Honey Almonds Glazed Mix next time.

To make some Pomegranate Cashew Milk Parfaits, begin by gathering the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe: Sahale Snacks Naturally Pomegranate Flavored Pistachios Glazed Mix, sugar, corn starch, pomegranate arils and cashew milk. You can use any milk variety for this recipe, but I went with cashew milk because I love the nutty flavor of this milk. For the detailed recipe, scroll down for the printable recipe card.

Once it comes out of the refrigerator, the texture is similar to that of a yogurt or a soft pudding. Start by adding about 1/2 cup of the cashew milk pudding to the bottom of a tall clear glass. Top with some fresh pomegranate arils and 1/4 cup of Sahale Snacks Naturally Pomegranate Flavored Pistachios Glazed Mix.

Add some more cashew milk pudding to the glass and top with additional pomegranate arils & Naturally Pomegranate Flavored Pistachios Glazed Mix. These desserts are so fun and festive and would be perfect for any fall gathering this year. For me, pomegranate is one of those foods that typify fall! I love how the flavor of pomegranate comes through with both the fresh arils and the Sahale Snacks Mix.

For parties, I really like to create individual dessert glasses like these. Making dessert something that can be personalized is always fun. Simply prepare a large batch of the cashew milk pudding and adjust ratios and quantities of the different layers to suit everyone’s tastes. Someone prefer more crunch? Add more nuts! Someone dislike pomegranate arils? Leave those out.

Since pomegranate is such a classic fruit of fall, why not use pomegranates as table decor?! Simply scatter some whole pomegranates across the dining table for a fun tablescape that will serve as a theme for the evening. Then you can end the meal with a round of these Pomegranate Cashew Pudding Parfaits for each guest. The crunch of the Naturally Pomegranate Flavored Pistachios Glazed Mix truly makes these parfaits pure perfection!

Each bite is a beautiful marriage of flavors and textures. The tart flavor of the pomegranate aril pairs so well with the sweet & salty flavor of the Naturally Pomegranate Flavored Pistachios Glazed Mix. The creaminess of the pudding is a perfect match with the crunch of the nuts. Add Sahale nuts to your next shopping list this year and change snacking for good.
