Wine-Poached Plums with Yogurt Cream

1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1 cup dry red wine
1/3 cup sugar
1 cinnamon stick, split lengthwise (Note)
3 strips (3 x 1/2-inch) orange zest

cup orange juice
6 red plums, halved and pitted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a small bowl, combine the yogurt and sour cream.  Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

In a medium saucepan, combine the wine, sugar, cinnamon, orange zest and orange juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce to a simmer, and add the plums. Cook, turning once, until the plums are tender, about 10 minutes.

With a slotted spoon, transfer the plums to a serving bowl. Return the wine mixture to the heat and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced to 1/2 cup, about 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature and discard the cinnamon stick and orange zest. Stir in the vanilla.

Pour the syrup over the plums. Chill the plums in the syrup for at least 1 hour and up to 3 days. Spoon the plums and syrup into 4 dessert bowls and top with a dollop of the yogurt cream.

Note:  You can use 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon in place of the cinnamon stick.
