Plum-and-strawberry ripple frozen yoghurt

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 6 people

  • 165 gm (¾ cup) golden caster sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthways
  • 500 gm (about 8) plums, halved and stones removed
  • 250 gm strawberries, hulls removed and halved
  • 1.2 kg sweetened plain yoghurt (see note)
01   Combine sugar, vanilla bean and ½ cup water in a saucepan and stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium and simmer for 2 minutes, then add plums and simmer for 6 minutes or until plums are tender. Add strawberries, remove from heat and stand at room temperature until cool. Purée one-third of the plum and strawberry mixture in a blender until smooth and set aside. Cover remaining plum and strawberry mixture and refrigerate until required.
02   Freeze yoghurt in an ice-cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions, then swirl through puréed plum and strawberry mixture and freeze for 4 hours or until firm. Makes about 2 litres.
03   To serve, divide remaining plum and strawberry mixture among bowls and top with a scoop of frozen yoghurt.

Note Use a thick and creamy sweetened plain yoghurt, such as honey or vanilla-flavoured, available from supermarkets.
