Roasted Plums with Vanilla Protein Yogurt – Recipe

,
plate of roasted plums and vanilla yoghurt

 

Many people believe that reaching for low-fat dairy is better for them than the full fat counterpart. This common misconception overlooks the fact that low-fat products substitute the fat with other ingredients such as sugar, artificial sweeteners and bulking agents, in order to replicate the mouthfeel and taste of the full fat versions.

Choosing a good quality full-fat Greek yoghurt which is packed with probiotics, calcium and amino acids, and pairing it with fruit offers a nutritious breakfast base or a simple but delicious desert.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 3 plums, halved and pitted
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup greek yoghurt
  • ½ vanilla pod
  • 1 scoop of vanilla whey

Method

–       Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.

–       Place the plums cut-side up, in a single layer on the baking dish.

–       Sprinkle cinnamon over the plums.

–       Bake in oven for approx. 15-20 minutes.

–       Blend the ricotta cheese till smooth and then mix in the greek yoghurt, vanilla pod and whey protein.

–       Allow the plums to cool and then serve with vanilla yoghurt.
