While living a healthy lifestyle and staying on track is important, wiggle room is also a must-have for keeping your sanity without going overboard. I’ve made this dessert recipe with that in mind – included are peaches, which are high in antioxidants and provides a dose of Vitamin C; 1% milk to boost calcium content and vitamin D, and a high quality protein powder to help build lean muscle and keep the metabolism firing. Enjoy!
Grilled Peaches with Whipped Strawberry & Peach Protein Fluff
1/2 cup Frozen peaches, sliced
1/3 cup 1% milk
1 scoop Strawberry ISO Lean Pro
1/2 tsp. Xantham gum
1 whole Peach, halved and pit removed
Method of Preparation:
To make Fluff: In a tall container, combine first four ingredients and, using a hand blender, mix until well incorporated. Then, using the whip attachment, “fluff” the consistency until airy and has doubled in size.
To Grill the peaches: Place your grill on medium high heat, and place peaches flesh side down and allow to cook for about 6 – 7 minutes. Place peaches, grilled side up and top with protein fluff.
For a more savory dessert, include the following ingredients:
1. Balsamic vinegar; drizzle on plate first
2. Rosemary, chopped; lightly sprinkle onto grilled fruit and fluff
