We are launching into the glorious season when fruit is at its peak and the bounty is abundant. Peaches in particular are a summertime staple in the Midwest, offering a sweetness no man-made candy can match.  

Food and lifestyle blogger Amy Sheree of Crown Point created a peach recipe that is ideal for breakfast because of its high protein content but could also be considered a dessert. “Peaches have always been one of my favorite fruits,” Amy says. “They’re healthy, sweet and a great replacement to make a healthy dessert without feeling deprived.” 

Whether you eat it at the beginning of the day or the end of a meal, give Amy’s simple summer recipe a try.
