This recipe is awesome for several reasons:

1. It’s easy.

2. It tastes amazing.

3. It’s healthy, balanced, and packed with nutrients.

Skinny Peaches and Cream is a nutritionist’s dream dessert because it is a balanced meal (with no added sugar!), which means your body can efficiently use all the nutrients when consumed together. This dish is composed of protein from Greek yogurt, fat from coconut oil, and carbohydrates from the fruit.  Plus, the cinnamon and ginger have holistic properties that benefit your body and mind. Cinnamon may have a positive effect on blood sugar and is recommended by herbalists for digestive disorders.  Ginger is said to have many healing properties such as lower cholesterol levels, aid in digestion, and alleviate high blood pressure.

This recipe is a really good way to utilize the amazing stone fruit found at farmer’s markets this time of year.
