Maple Yogurt w/ Cinnamon Ginger Plum Compote


"Red fiery red, swirled with white

Like ribbons of energy, in a dark lifeless night..

A burst of flavor, tart, sweet & spice

Your go to snack, when dessert doesn't suffice.

Quick to whip up, pleases the mid day munch

A luscious splash,  and a recipe emerging from a hunch!"



2 ripe plums, pitted and chopped into pieces

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder

1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

1 cup thick yogurt (greek or otherwise)

2 teaspoons dark maple syrup


Heat a non stick pan. Add sugar, along with 3 tablespoons water and allow the sugar to melt. Once melted, add the ginger and cook for a few minutes. Stir in the plums, cinnamon & vanilla essence. Cover and cook on medium flame till plums are tender.


Turn heat to high, and mash the pulp with a spoon. Continue cooking till most of the liquid is absorbed and you get a jam like consistency - but don't let it get too thick. Remove from heat and cool.

Mix the yogurt & maple syrup till smooth & creamy. Add a dollop of the compote in a tall glass, followed by the yogurt. Refrigerate for 2 hours & serve cold.

A creamy, low fat dessert with hints of summer fruit & spice!
