Roasted Plums with Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Aug 11, 2017

This recipe is so simple, yet so good. The frozen yogurt requires only three ingredients, there’s no sugar in it and you won’t even need an ice-cream maker. As for the plums, they’re topped with a little honey and cinnamon and then slowly roasted in the oven. There’s really no reason not to make this simple, yet I dare say, refined dessert.

Roasted Plums with Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

10 ripe but firm plums, halved and stoned

200g/2/3 cups honey plus a little extra 

2 tsp cinnamon powder

700g/3 cups full-fat Greek yogurt, chilled

Seeds scraped from one vanilla pod 

A handful of raw or toasted slivered almonds, optional

Preheat your oven to 150C/300F. Place the halved plums skin down in an oven-proof dish. Drizzle with a little honey and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the plums have softened but haven’t completely broken down. Transfer to a dish, along with the liquid and allow to cool. Once cool, refrigerate until using. 

In a bowl, whisk the yogurt with the 200g/2/3 cups honey and the vanilla. 

If you have an ice-cream maker, place the yogurt in the bowl of the ice-cream maker and freeze it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, transfer the yogurt mix into a shallow dish, cover with aluminium foil and place in the freezer for 1.5 hours. Remove from the freezer, beat with a whisk or a fork to break up the solid pieces, then cover again and place in the freezer. After 1.5 hours, repeat the process, then leave covered for another hour before serving. 

To serve, place two or three plum halves in individual ice-cream bowls, then add one or two scoops of frozen yogurt. Decorate with slivered almonds, remaining plum juice or honey, if you like. Serve at once and enjoy!
