2 cups heavy cream, divided
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
Pour 1/2 cup of pomegranate airls into a zip-top bag. Use a rolling pin to gently crush the arils and release their juice.

Refrigerate the mixture for several hours, or until thoroughly chilled
Freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the ice cream has a soft serve consistency, add the remaining 1/2 cup of pomegranate arils and the dark chocolate. Mix well.
