The sweet and summery goodness of peach is more than just a culinary treat to the world. Let’s unwrap the health benefits of this fruit with a delicious recipe for your indulgence!
Sweet and Hydrating
This fruit is a good supplement to your daily hydration needs. It contains 85 to 89 percent water, a perfect way to satisfy both your thirst and palate at the same time.
Optimized with Fiber
Eat the whole fruit to maximize the fiber content which is good for digestive support and regulating sugar levels. One-medium sized peach contains 3 grams of fiber when you include the skin.
Your Vitamin C Buddy
Unlikely it may seem, but the peach is going for the citrus fruit gig. This fruit contains 10 milligrams of vitamin c for every medium-sized peach which are about 13 percent of your recommended daily intake. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant known to protect your body against oxidative damage.
While Vitamin A is known for keeping your skin and eyes healthy, it is also a primary nutrient that keeps your organs and gut lining healthy thus, fending off the pathogens that we absorb through food.
Paleo Peach Crumble
- 5 cups diced peaches – (approximately 3 large peaches)
- 1 Tbs honey
- 1 Tbs lemon juice
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 Tbs melted coconut oil
- 2 Tbs maple syrup
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8×8 inch square pan.
- Place the diced peaches on the bottom of the pan. Top the peaches with 1 Tbs of honey and 1 Tbs of lemon juice. Mix the peaches around with a spoon so that the honey and lemon become evenly mixed into the peaches.
- In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg together with a fork and set aside.
- In another separate bowl, mix the melted coconut oil and maple syrup together with a fork until well mixed.
- Pour the coconut oil/maple syrup mixture on top of the almond flour mixture and mix with a fork until clumps form and there are no real “dry” areas of the mixture left.
- Evenly pour the almond flour mixture on top of the fruit in the pan. Using a fork, distribute the almond flour topping across the peaches, forming a “crumble” texture.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until the crust is crisp and the edges are lightly golden.
- Eat warm or Cold. Enjoy!
