A fool is a traditional British dessert of stewed fruit swirled with whipped cream. Here, low-fat yogurt replaces some of the whipped cream. Since plums vary considerably in sweetness, start with the lower amount of sugar or sweetener and add more after tasting, if desired.
- For Plum Fool :
- 1 pound plums, pitted and sliced (about 2 1/2 cups)
- 1/4-1/2 cup sugar or Splenda Granular
- 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt
- 1/3 cup whipping cream
Set aside a few plum slices for garnish. Combine the remaining plum slices, 1/4 cup sugar (or Splenda), ginger and cinnamon in a small heavy saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring, over medium heat. Cook until the mixture has softened into a chunky puree, 15 to 20 minutes. Taste and add more sugar (or Splenda), if desired. Transfer to a bowl and chill until cool, about 1 hour.
Meanwhile, set a fine-mesh stainless-steel sieve over a bowl. Spoon in yogurt and let drain in the refrigerator until reduced to 1 cup, about 1 hour.
Whip cream to soft peaks in a chilled bowl. Gently fold in the drained yogurt with a rubber spatula. Fold this mixture into the fruit puree, leaving distinct swirls. Spoon into 6 dessert dishes and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 2 days. Garnish with the reserved plum slices before serving.
