Last weekend, I made something called peach donuts. These are not to be confused with the actual peach varietal called donut.
No, these little beauties involve using more traditional peach varieties (I get mine from 3 Squares Produce in Salt Lake), cutting them into thick slices, dipping them in yogurt, decorating them like a cake donut and then freezing them.
I don’t have any kids but I imagine this would be a brilliant way to get kids to eat their fruit all in the name of fun. You can use whatever flavor of yogurt you might want (I used vanilla) so it’s as healthy as serving them a bowl full of peaches and yogurt but in a fun manner.
I took these to a Labor Day party (with no kids) and they were a hit with adults! They could also be a fun brunch dessert.
Better still, I saved the extra peach trimmings from the donuts and made peach daiquiris.
Cut peaches into thick slices with the pit in the center. (I got about 4 slices per medium size peach.) Scoop out the center “hole” with a melon baller or cut with a knife. Lay slices on a large cookie sheet and freeze for 30 minutes. Spoon yogurt onto a plate or small cookie sheet and dip frozen peach slices into yogurt until fully covered. Return to cookie sheet covered with wax paper and decorate with your choice of sprinkles, cinnamon/sugar mixture or nuts. Freeze for a minimum of 4 hours. To serve, let thaw for 10 minutes and enjoy.
