Greek Yogurt with Brown Sugar Plums

Russian Red, Ruby Woo and now RiRi Woo, let’s admit it – make-up is having a ‘red’ moment. And I’m kind of obsessed with it. I didn’t just stop at these lipsticks though, I bought myself some red pens, a red candle, baked some Red Velvet Cupcakes… and I’m still not done with it. So now I’m making another dessert to celebrate this colour. But this time, I’m gonna make the colour and flavour pop. We’ve got some luscious Greek Yogurt, yes the same one I showed you how to make at home, plums roasted with soft brown sugar and the smoky flavour of toasted walnuts.

It’s a celebration of textures too, this dessert, creamy and cold Greek Yogurt is sweetened with honey, if you want to go with Agave instead, that would be great too!

The plums… aah the plums!! We need to take a moment here to see them getting topped off with some light brown soft sugar.

Ten minutes in the oven helps enhance the natural sweetness of the fruit. So why the sugar, Ms. ‘To the T’, you ask? Well it’s because plums can be really sour, so God knows we need the sugar.

Now to the walnuts. Toasted, fragrant and oh so crrrunchy.

Creamy.

Gooey.

Crunchy.

YUM!

Let’s get to the recipe, shall we?
