Peaches with Cottage Cheese and Honey Recipe
Simple, sweet, and oh-so-satisfying, this classic dessert subs as a snack, with juicy peaches cupping low-fat cottage cheese, drizzled with honey, and topped with almonds and mint.
Cooking time: 15 minutes (total)
Makes 4 servings
2 organic peaches
⅓ cup low-fat organic cottage cheese
¼ cup organic local honey
½ cup toasted almonds
1 tablespoon chopped mint
1 teaspoon course sea salt
1. In a large pot of boiling water slowly drop peaches in and blanch for 10 seconds. Remove from water and place in an ice bath (one part ice, two parts water). Let cool. Remove skin, which should slip off easily. Slice peaches in half, remove pit, and place halves on plate with flat edge up. Place one quarter of the cottage cheese on top of each peach and drizzle with one quarter of the honey. Roughly chop almonds and top each peach. Sprinkle with mint and salt. Serve at room temperature.
