Frozen| Plum Frozen Yogurt … low fat treat for Pinktober

“There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October”
Nathaniel Hawthorne

Plum Frozen YogurtHAPPY OCTOBER! Seems meaningless to even ask how we got to October so quick. Bat an eyelid and the month is gone. I associate October with Pinktober, a month laced in PINK to signify ‘Breast Cancer Awareness‘. I’ve tried to post pink in October year after year, at least a couple of posts, so am excited to begin October 2011 in a rather PINK way with this delicious low fat Plum Frozen Yogurt.Plum Frozen YogurtIt’s a result of the dieting diva suddenly kicking straight back into dieting mode after lying low for a month! That gave me reason enough to reach out for the last of the late summer stone fruit I had frozen in the beginning of September. The colour that the fruit offer when combined with dairy makes my heart sing PINK!!Plum Frozen Yogurt

Plum Frozen Yogurt A fitting way to begin October, and a rather refreshing delicious one too. If you still have late summer fruit hanging around, grab them, stone them, slice the fruit and freeze them. This is where the thermomix kicks in. It loves making ice creams and frozen yogurt out of frozen fruit. Just a matter of minutes and this addictive pink treat was done.Plum Frozen YogurtThe addition of vanilla sugar and kirsch give it that special flavour. It’s a  refreshing and beautifully coloured low fat frozen treat; a nice end to preserved excess fruit of summer. I added kirsch in there thanks to a tip from Monsieur Lebovitzs kirsch post to use it to enhance flavours when using stone fruit. Just a tbsp is enough to lend this fro yo a special flavour, and keep it from freezing rock hard.Plum Frozen YogurtYou can see that summer is leaving us as the frozen yogurt didn’t immediately disappear into puddles this time. We are experiencing cool and pleasant mornings and evenings; the days aren’t too bad either. I love this time of the year. Its comfortable and enjoyable. OctoberThe garden is buzzing with butterflies, bees, dragonflies and the flower beds look happy. I just got the gardener to sow herb  seeds and had him pot chrysanthemum cuttings. Yes, the weather is great, and the pooch is happy. Coco spends her days chasing butterflies in the garden all day long. She even got stung by a bee, the poor thing!

  14. Anyways, I think my other comment just disappeared. Interesting. Anyways, I was saying that I have lots of plums in my fridge right now. I sooooo can’t resist making this–especially that the ingredients are not that many. Do you think of a good alternative to a vegan yogurt? I just can’t help not to make this! The photos are SO AMAZING-as usual!
    Rylan – Art and Appetite´s last blog post ..Cake Stand GIVEAWAY and Martha Stewart Weddings!My Profile

    • Oh you are too kind Rylan. I absolutely love your cake art! It is amazing. I set my own yogurt so am not sure about a good vegan yogurt. Hope the plums in the fridge find a delicious end! Thanks for stopping by!

  28. What a lovely looking frozen yogurt! I tried making some myself, but was disappointed with the texture, and it froze into a rock. Just curious, did you freeze yours, or just eat it fresh, because I found that once frozen, it got ruined. Maybe the kirsch solved this problem.
