½ cup (125 ml) each white wine and water
1 cup (250 ml) granulated sugar
¼ tsp (1 ml) salt
1 vanilla pod, split and seeds scraped

3 cups (750 ml) thick plain Greek yogurt
½ cup (125 ml) hazelnuts or almonds, toasted and chopped
½ cup (125 ml) granola


  1. Combine wine, water, sugar, salt, vanilla seeds and citrus zest in a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add plums and reduce heat to a gentle simmer.
