Cardamom plum and vanilla bean paletas | tinyinklings.com
Can I just be honest? I’ve watched the movie Pitch Perfect about 8 times in the past four weeks. It was one of those movies I wasn’t sure I was gong to like (probably coming off my Les Miserables fail), but I ended up LOVING.  Synchronized lady dancing to a Mariah Carey chart topper?  Yes.

I may or may not have made this song my ring tone.  Don’t judge.

Other things I’ve done in multiples this month?

Consumed too many Americanos.

Made these cookies.

Listened to Tegan and Sara’s new album Heartthrob.

Dreaded Mondays.

Made ice pops and ate them out back in the sunshine.

Cardamom plum and vanilla bean paletas | tinyinklings.comTruth be told, these paletas came about from a need to use up some plums that were looking questionably wrinkly.  While they hadn’t gone bad, there we’re a bit too unappetizing looking to eat fresh.  I could have thrown them to the chickens, but decided to make a quick plum jam instead.

In a pan went plums with lemon juice, honey, water, and a pinch of cardamom.  Had I not been making paletas, I would have sterilized some jars, made a double batch, and preserved this business.  The jam is fantastic on it’s own, but combined with cool and creamy Greek yogurt, it’s on a whole other level.

I used natural sweeteners here to keep this recipe a little cleaner, but feel free to use any sweetener you like.  Or shortcut it and straight-out buy vanilla Greek yogurt.  Make it yours. Recipe after the jump. [click to continue…]
