Pomegranate & Strawberry Chilled Soup

So I ran across an amazing blog not long ago it's Gourmet Mom on-the-go, and she has some amazing recipes not to mention some very creative ones for kids, I'm sure I'll be posting some other great recipes by her in the future, but this one caught my eye because of the pomegranate and strawberry combo, Divine!! And this recipe is low fat and relatively low in calories (130 per serving). It is fresh, creamy and absolutely amazing!

Juice from 2 large Pomegranates (about 1 Cup)
Arils from 1 large Pomegranate (about 1 Cup)
2 C. fat free half & half
1 ½ C. fresh strawberries, hulled
¼ c. orange Juice
½ c. Reduced fat sour cream
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons fresh mint leaves, chopped

Remove arils from 1 large Pomegranate and set aside for garnish. Juice remaining 2 pomegranates, using a citrus reamer. Pour the mixture through a cheesecloth-lined strainer. Scrape the shells to remove any excess pulp and save to serve your soup in. If you’re short on time, you can substitute 1 C. 100% Pomegranate Juice (found in the produce section at the grocery store). Put all ingredients except reserved arils into blender and process until well blended. Transfer to refrigerator until ready to serve. Pour soup into desired serving dishes and sprinkle 2-3 Tablespoons arils on top. Garnish with a fresh mint leaf.
Makes 6 servings.
