Cardamom Coconut Cream & Pomegranates

Remember that time I made this?


All that sugar, dairy and alcohol. Kiiiiiinda wishing I could have it right now.


But only kinda.


Just like the quote from yesterday’s post, this shouldn’t be hard, but at times it feels really hard.


During times like that, perspective is an amazing thing. We saw Unbroken over the weekend, which I highly recommend for nothing other than perspective.


Louis Zamperini survived a plane crash, spent 47 hungry and thirsty days at sea with sharks circling his raft and Japanese planes bombing him in the water, only to be “rescued” as a POW until the war ended. Perspective.

It almost makes this recipe seem like a five course italian meal…


Description: Creamy and tart, this snack, dessert or breakfast will put a smile on your face.

Cardamom Coconut Cream & Pomegranates

1 cup coconut milk
1/8 teaspoon cardamom

1. With whisk attachment, beat milk for 5 minutes on level 8.
2. Stir in cardamom.
3. Spoon on top of pomegranates and enjoy!

“All I want to tell young people is that you’re not going to be anything in life unless you learn to commit to a goal. You have to reach deep within yourself to see if you are willing to make the sacrifices.”

― Louis Zamperini

  1. Hi Amanda and Austin –   I am LeAnn’s friend Shea and she told me about your blog when I saw her on our annual Christmas reunion. I love the blog! I see that there are options to share at the end of each post, but do not see an option to pin to Pinterest. Am I missing it? If so I will look harder, but if not it would wonderful to have the option of pinning your wonderful recipes there – and more opportunities to share.   All the best, Shea

    • Shea – Thank you so much for reading! 🙂 Unfortunately, our current platform doesnt allow us to add the pins, HOWEVER we’re working with a vendor now to create a new, more engaging site. In the meantime, please follow me on pinterest at Amanda Backenstose because I’ve personally pinned my recipes there.

      Happy New Year!!!
