I like to keep it simple around here. And on nights when my husband isn’t home for dinner, our meal is often beyond simple – as in dull and uninspired. Tonight I served whole wheat spaghetti with pizza sauce and corn on the cob to the children, while I ate zucchini spaghetti (I can’t get enough of this stuff). I knew there might be some complaints from the peanut gallery, so I headed them off with the promise of dessert. My son had mentioned that some of the peaches I bought yesterday were ripe, so I put together peaches and cream for dessert. The children were impressed by the “fancy” presentation and they enjoyed this easy little treat.
12 ounces ripe peaches (about 2)
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tsp. maple syrup
- Chop the peaches into bite-sized pieces.
- Combine the cream with the maple syrup and whip it until stiff peaks form.
- Top the peaches with the cream, preferably in small glasses or glass bowls. Garnish with a few pieces of peach. Enjoy!
This recipe costs a total of $1.48, or $.49 per serving. It’s a simple treat that you don’t want to miss when peaches are in season!
