My sweet tooth has been on high lately. It could be because it was “that time” of the month, stress, being sick, or just a combination of everything. I have also been trying to eat things to help rebuild a stronger immune system so when I saw new seasonal fruits popping up at my local grocery store, I was all over it. Attracted by the cold, dark, deep, and juicy nature’s candy, I ended up buying a bag of plums. One thing I forgot was that I have a strange allergy to certain “uncooked” fruits such as peaches, apples, and – you guessed it – plums! This lead me to the creation of a delicious mouth-watering dessert: Honey Baked Plums with a side of Greek yogurt.
Baking tray or ramekin dish
1 whole plum (cut in half, pit removed)
1-2 teaspoons of pure honey (I used Tahi Manuka Honey)
1 tablespoon of vanilla greek yogurt (I used Siggi Vanilla Greek Yogurt)
Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Wash, dry and cut the plum in half. Discard the pit. Place plum on a baking dish and drizzle honey all over it. Pop it in the oven for about 30 minutes. Once it is done, let it cool for a few minutes and then add a side scoop of the Greek yogurt. You can indulge a little extra with this low-calorie dessert by sprinkling on some walnuts, pecans or pistachios. This can be a great easy, unique, healthy and satisfying dessert to make during a small dinner party, too!
