Fee SIMPLE Friday: Grilled Plums with Yogurt and Berries

The Elements
  • 2-4 red plums (up to 6 depending on how many you wish to serve, just use more yogurt)
  • 2-4 tsps. agave nectar (can substitute honey if you don't have agave nectar, this is a total estimate, I didn't measure I just drizzle some on each plum half)
  • 1 container greek yogurt (the small ones... they vary in size but usually about 5-6 oz)
  • ½-1 tsp. orange zest
  • ½-1 tsp sugar/splenda/brown sugar etc. (use whatever you like here)
  • 1 container of blackberries (you won't need them all, only about ¼ cup total)
Procedure
  1. Half each plum and remove the pits.
  2. Drizzle the agave nectar over the open halves and then cook them face-down on the grill for 4-6 minutes until flesh is soft and you can see light grill marks (again I didn't see any but if you were using a real grill you definitely would).
  3. While plums are grilling, mix the greek yogurt with the orange zest and sugar. To save on doing the dishes you can just do this right in the greek yogurt container with a spoon.
  4. Rinse the blackberries and you can either leave them whole or slice them into halves lengthwise. I did a mixture of both just to keep it interesting.
  5. Remove the plums from the grill and let cool for a bit (they don't need to get all the way down to room temperature, just not piping hot).
  6. Put them on a serving platter and dollop the greek yogurt into the holes in each half (see pictures).
  7. Top with blackberries and serve immediately.
The Verdict
So easy it kills me. You could do this with any stone fruit and top with all different varieties of greek yogurt and berries (even nuts...think almond slivers, pistachios...) All excellent possibilities and an easy base recipe to go off of. This literally takes five minutes and is perfect for a grill out, because you are already out at the grill! A great recipe for the 4th of July when you are all standing around the grill and want a light refreshing summer dessert that can be made right on the grill! Highly recommend.
