When I was given a box of these gorgeous cherry plums, I wanted to do something simple but spectacular with them.
I decided to roast them and serve them over a vanilla spiked yoghurt.
The end result is deliciously caramelised plums that are offset by a creamy, sweet yoghurt…all bathed in a rich fruity sauce.
The best part of this recipe is how flexible it is.
You can use whichever sweetener you like, depending on your way of eating.
Keto? Use a brown sugar replacement and sugar-free maple syrup.
Vegan? Coconut yoghurt and maple syrup.
Paleo? Same again.
You can cut your cherry plums in half and remove the pips, and you should absolutely do this if you are serving them to small children.
Or, if you’re lazy like me, you can roast them whole and just push the pips to one side of your bowl.
The sweetness level of the finished dish will be dependent on the ripeness of your plums and I suggest that you taste and tweak to suit.
