My Mission to Accept Yogurt into My Life Part 6 - Plum Frozen Yogurt

Plum Frozen Yogurt

Hubby bought some plums, but didn't eat them. I decided to steal them and make frozen yogurt. I had plenty of blueberries that I could have used, but I wanted to try the plums for some reason. I really have no idea why. It was a lot of work to peal them and cut the pits out of them. I can see why I didn't find any plum frozen yogurt recipes when I Googled it! It's a lot of work!

I mixed just about 3 cups of frozen plums with some Fage non-fat Green Yogurt. I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup, but I heaped it and then threw in another spoonful just for kicks. I also used a tablespoon of vanilla. All of that went into the food processor until it was all nice and blended up. I then dropped spoonfuls of the mix onto a frozen cookie sheet with wax paper on it. I've learned that using a frozen cookie sheet helps keep the shape of the drops. The cookie sheet went into the freezer for a few hours or maybe I even left it in there overnight. I can't remember now. 

For some reason, this batch never really got hard. They were a bit icier than previous batches, but they never got hard. I liked them, but they were different. Maybe it was too  much fruit and not enough yogurt. I'm not sure. These gave me major brain freeze and I could only eat a few at a time. What you see in the bowl was about one serving for me. They lasted all of last week plus the first two days of this week. I didn't eat them over the weekend. My previous batches have only survived one week and Friday's servings have been smaller. It might have been a bigger batch, but I know I ate less per serving due to the brain freeze. I'm not sure if I'll ever make these again. I don't regret making them. I even enjoyed them. I didn't enjoy peeling and pitting plums!
