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.

ingredients

  • 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

directions

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.
