Desserts are my kryptonite. I am such a sweets lover and my thighs are attest to that. I have to constantly watch what I eat, I am great at portion control, healthy snack alternatives and cooking low calorie meals. However, when it comes to dessert time; I lose it. So, my way to combat this addiction love of desserts is to take classic desserts and make them healthier! Which is why I created this awesome Foodie Collection of Healthy Classic Desserts!
Every other week, I receive a “crop box” from my local Farmers Market. Peaches must be in season because my crop box has been full of them recently! So, what to do with them? Make a dessert, of course! When I think of peach desserts, I think of Peaches ‘N Cream. However, it can get a bit fattening when using heavy creams and cream cheeses. Not this time!! Here is my “skinnied up”, “healthified” version of Peaches ‘N Cream.
