Pomegranate Mousse
Pomegranate Mousse is a creamy, airy, fluffy, silky, luscious, smooth and delicious. Pomegranate Mousse is an eggless, no sugar, no gelatin but still soft and rich. I would advise to use coconut or almond yogurt for vegan Pomegranate Mousse recipe.

• You can use ready made pomegranate juice.
• You can use gelatin instead of agar-agar (Agar-agar is a gelatin substitute for vegetarian).
• You can use regular yogurt, just hang it in a muslin cloth for 2 hours before using.
• You can use coconut or almond yogurt for vegan recipe.
• You can use Sugar instead of Honey.
