Going through my files this morning, I saw this recipe I made before leaving from Athens and thought I should share it while there are still fresh, juicy peaches in the market.
If you want to use canned peaches this is fine and it becomes the easiest dessert you can make in less than fifteen minutes and it is very delicious. u00c2u00a0All you need to do is whip the heavy cream and combine it with the other ingredients.
See u00c2u00a0How to peel stone fruitu00c2u00a0and make Peach compote same way asu00c2u00a0Apricot Compote.
If you are on a diet, skip the heavy cream and add more yoghurt with 2% fat. u00c2u00a0You can eat it for breakfast, as a snack or for a light dinner.
