Vanilla scented plum puree with toasted nuts

Fancy this for breakfast!

plum puree with yoghurt and toasted nuts03I don’t quite have a lot of time on my hands this evening. Had a long busy day, just finished a wonderful dinner (kale, sun dried tomatoes and feta pie with a homemade wholemeal crust!) and am now getting ready for my evening tea routine. Ginger & mint.

A wonderful and light breakfast, which is super nutritious, looks like a million bucks and takes only 5 minutes! Probiotic yogurt with a vanilla scented plum puree and slightly toasted seeds and nuts. It’s a recipe I adapted after one of Justine Schofield’s which I’ve seen on tv the other day; she’s using strawberries which I replaced with red flesh plums and a different nut mix.

Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 TBSP each: walnuts, pistachios, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pepitas
  • 12 TBSP yogurt
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 ripe plums
  • ¼ tsp organic vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to a low temp (120C). Bake the nuts and seeds on a baking tray for about 5 minutes, until slightly golden brown. (We don't want them too toasted; the purpose is just to get them to release their essential oils.)
  2. Mix the honey through the yogurt until completely incorporated. (I used a regular spoon & a regular bowl for this.)
  3. Remove the plum stones and add the plums & the vanilla paste to the blender. Puree. Taste and if the plums are too sour, add a bit of honey and puree for another few seconds to mix through.
  4. Scoop out the plum puree and mix in the chia seeds. (I used a regular spoon for this.)
  5. Assemble: scoop half the yogurt in one bowl/jar and half in the other; continue with half the plum puree to each bowl/jar. Top it with the toasted seeds and nuts and serve immediately.
Notes
This does not hold very well in the fridge (seeds and nuts get quite soggy) so I'd advise to just make only what you plan to eat immediately. Alternatively, store yogurt and plum puree in separate containers in the fridge.
