If you missed yesterday’s post, I shared one of my absolute favorite recipes of late: copycat Pinkberry ice cream.
For you non west-coasters (… I suppose that now includes me as well), Pinkberry is the iconic tart frozen yogurt. I’ll never forget the first time I had it, way before there were fro-yo stands on every corner. BL and I were visiting his friends in LA, who were all raving about this new “healthy” dessert place. Let’s go!
Well, a decade-plus later, tart fro-yo is nothing special. Unless you make your own! For a fraction of what it costs in stores, you can enjoy homemade tart fro-yo with whatever toppings you’d like. Forget dropping $5 on a measly amount of yogurt and fruit. For the same price, you can create an entire batch.
I love pairing my fro-yo with fruit (and lots of mochi). After a surplus of plums a few weeks ago, I decided to make this simple dessert sauce that tastes great on everything from waffles to pancakes to you guessed it, frozen yogurt.
Just like my fro-yo recipe, this one is super easy. Chopped plums, water, a pinch of sugar and vanilla. Bring to a boil, then reduce until syrupy. Puree in a blender or food processor and you are done! This will keep for a week in the fridge, so get ready to top anything and everything.
When I’m not eating dessert, I love this drizzled over oatmeal and yogurt parfaits.
