This time of year here in Michigan fresh fruit is starting to be in season. The stores and farmer’s markets are filled with delicious grapes, strawberries, blueberries, and even peaches. I love eating them by themselves and also in recipes – especially as a dessert! That’s why I was excited when Dave brought home fresh peaches from the store recently. I decided to chop them and mix them into a cool creamy peach pie.
This dessert turned out much different than a typical peach pie. It’s creamy and cool, perfect at the end of a long hot day. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll love it! It’s only takes a few minutes to prepare and then it chills in the fridge or freezer for a bit before serving.
I took it to our family picnic and it got lots of compliments. If you make it and is taking too long to set you can use a spoon or fork to mix it all together and turn it into a delicious crumble-like dessert. I loved this recipe and will be making it again with peaches but also can’t wait to try different fruit too!
