+ Well Nourished | Cinnamon Peaches

Cinnamon Peaches

Sometimes the simple things in life are the best.  Maybe I love this because my mum often made this when I was a child, as a dinner party dessert or as a special treat.  One of many fond food memories!

In my opinion, this is an exquisite flavour combination.  Traditionally cinnamon combined with apple or even banana.  But my favourite cinnamon flavoured fruity dessert, is this simple Cinnamon Peaches.  With new seasons peaches just appearing and blowing my mind with their divine flavour, I thought I should share it, even though its simplicity makes me second guess doing so.

Because this is so simple, there is no hiding and the hero’s need to be tasty.  So I urge you to seek out lovely fresh ground cinnamon (or even better, grind it yourself) and flavoursome peaches.  Floury or flavourless peaches just won’t do!

Why is it healthy?
Cinnamon is a fabulous culinary  and medicinal herb.   Its traditional uses include treating poor digestion, colds and to improve energy, vitality and circulation.  Many studies have confirmed it benefits, especially in balancing blood sugar levels which are important for diabetics, weight loss and stable energy levels.  It has also been found to be anti-fungal and antibacterial amongst many other benefits.  The fresh peach is obviously also a great source of micronutrients and fibre.  The yoghurt or (cultured) sour cream is great for digestive health.  The fat from all of the optional creams below helps with the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and also sustains the release of energy.

Ingredients
Peaches, the freshest in-season delights you can find
Cinnamon ground to taste
Labne or Sour Cream (I just can’t go past the Barambah Organics Sour Cream – it’s simply cultured cream and divine)

Now here’s the hard part (ha ha) – wash and slice your lovely fresh peaches and top with a dollop of labne or sour cream.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve immediately.  Heaven!

Variations
Dairy-free
I would substitute the labne or sour cream with coconut yoghurt or cashew nut cream

 

Try it and let me know what you and your family think.  With fruit being the focus in the Well Nourished Lunch Box Challenge this week, I hope this has given you a bit of inspiration?

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
