Peaches & Coconut Cream

IMG_4540

Peaches and cream – a classic combination that tastes fantastic even in its simplest of forms. This recipe takes a peach, removes the pit and then fills the hollow part of the peach half with coconut butter. Here you have yourself a breakfast, snack, or dessert!

When making vegan (and raw) desserts, coconut butter is without a doubt one of the most versatile ingredients. Not to be confused with coconut oil, which is a product of pressed coconut flesh, coconut butter includes the flesh with its oils. The result is a creamy butter that is packed with fiber too!

Coconut butter glowry:

Coconut butter: is rich in bacteria-killing, immunity-boosting lauric acid. It is one of the closest food in the world to breast milk. Coconut butter contributes to staving off candida (yeast overgrowth). Because it is a medium-chain fatty acid, it is burned for energy rather than fat storage and helps to stimulate the metabolism.

    What a great, simple dessert idea! I have to admit, I’ve just been eating all my peaches & nectarines out of hand–but this would certainly class them up. 🙂
