This is a tasty fast food budget breakfast. Although peaches are out of season I found them cheap but apples are an excellent substitute.
1 fresh summer peach, halved and sliced thinly
Mix together in bowl and set aside to let juices fuse.
¼-cup raw cashews
1 Medjool date, pitted and chopped
¼- teaspoon vanilla powder
A pinch of salt
Place all the ingredients in a food processor fitted with an S blade. Process for approximately 1 minute, or until the dates and cashew begin to stick together.
Place the peaches in serving dish, ramekin, or ring mold, laying down the layers of peaches one on top of another. Crumble the nut and date mixture on top of the peaches, while lightly pressing the mixture with your fingers to form a firm topping. Compress lightly, and serve. If using ring mold, compress the mixture down slightly and gently remove the ring mold.
Satisfy your frozen sweet tooth! I started making these one summer when I really wanted a dessert that was remotely close to being healthy. I originally made this with honey. Try it with agave nectar if honey is not part of your diet.
A simple blend of peach and celery (thanks to Dr. Doug Graham) makes a sweet/tart dressing for this salad with sliced peaches, tomatoes and celery with dandelion greens. It was very pretty (but consumed too quickly for a photo … next time I will add one). Very minimalist but tasty.
