Peach season is officially here in Ontario and I enjoying every bite of it! I don’t know about you but I have been having at least one peach each day. For those of you who don’t know this, I have a big sweet tooth! Luckily our local peaches are incredibly sweet, making them the perfect snack to satisfy my sweet tooth (and hopefully some of yours too)!
I have been experimenting with peaches and sweet treats in my kitchen and came up with these delicious dairy free frozen dessert cups. They are a great way to use up some ripe peaches and enjoy a cold and refreshing treat on a hot day.
Give them a try and let me know what you think.
Makes 10-12 dessert cups
1 cup dates, pitted
½ cup rolled oats
¼ cup shredded coconut
3 tbsp. hemp seeds
½ cup almond butter, smooth or crunchy (your choice)
4 ripe peaches
1.5-2 cups vanilla frozen yogurt (I used vanilla bean coconut milk frozen dessert by so delicious, this is a great dairy free option).
Combine pitted dates, rolled oats, shredded coconut, hemp seeds and almond butter in food processer. Pulse for 20-30 seconds or until ingredients are mixed together well.
Take about 1-2 tablespoons worth of the date mixture and place at the bottom of a muffin tray. Press down firmly to create your frozen dessert ‘crust’. Side note: I like to line my muffin tray with silicone muffin cups (for easy removal).
In a blender mix together 4 sliced peaches (leaving the skins on) and 1.5-2 cups of frozen vanilla yogurt.
Pour mixture over your crust and voila!
Place in freezer for at least 4 hours and enjoy!
If you have extra date mixture, roll them into balls and enjoy as a mini energy bite.
I hope you are enjoying the summer, sunshine, and all the fresh produce it provides us.
Cheers to happy and healthy eating!
Until next time,
