POM-Mango Compound Butter


For dinner tonight, I am cooking with POM Wonderful. I was contacted about a month ago by a representative and received a few bottles. Luckily, I was about to start my SuperFood month, and Pomegranates are a SuperFood. Fresh pomegranates aren't in season right now, so POM Wonderful is a great sub as it's 100% juice.
I decided to incorporate the juice into 3 recipes, the first being this compound butter. I knew I wanted to make a BBQ sauce for chicken with mango and pomegranate, so I thought I'd make a compound butter to top some sweet potatoes. JJ and I love sweet potatoes with BBQ chicken.
I love making compund butters because you can really stretch out the butter by incorporating other ingredients. It also dresses up a simple baked sweet potato but is very simple to make!

POM-Mango Compund Butter

4 tbsp. (1/2 stick) butter at room temp.
2 tbsp. POM Wonderful
1/2 mango, diced
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of salt

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse to incorporate. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides a few times. It won't fully combine, but it should whip together pretty well. Serve right away, or store in tupperware in the fridge for up to a week.

Mmm, this butter would be good on sooo many things. I really want some spread on some cornbread muffins right now :)
