I've mentioned this several times here on the blog before, but fall is my absolute most favorite time of the year. The crispness of the air and the fashion are so much better, to me, in the fall than any other season. However, when it comes to food, my feelings are completely different. Summer fruits and vegetables have my heart. They are fresh and they don't require a whole lot of fuss to make them taste their best. This recipe is proof of that. Peaches are one of my favorite fruits, so I was really excited when I found this recipe. It's a simple, healthy and really beautiful dessert in my opinion. The ingredients superbly compliment the peaches. Eating this was a bittersweet experience. It tasted so dang good, yet it reminded me that fresh peaches won't be around that much longer...
Here is what you need and what to do (makes 2 parfaits):
2-3 peaches, washed and diced
Greek yogurt- I used Chobani
Pure vanilla extract
Dark brown sugar
Pecans, toasted and chopped
1/ In a small bowl, mix the Greek yogurt and honey together - to taste. Add a splash of vanilla extract and stir.
2/ At the bottom of a small glass, add a layer of peaches and top with a sprinkle of brown sugar and a few pecans
3/ Add a layer of the yogurt mixture.
4/ Add another layer of peaches, walnuts and brown sugar. Top with the yogurt and a sprinkle of pecans.
