Heart Month Day 22: We Heart Dessert

February 22, 2020

How many of us want to beat a hasty path to the freezer for a few scoops of ice cream after dinner? While it’s nice to treat yourself from time to time, it’s important to keep the decadent desserts as a special treat, rather than an every-night occurrence.

Luckily for your sweet tooth, some desserts are healthier than others, like this recipe for Grilled Peaches with Yogurt and Honey. When peaches aren’t in season, try swapping them for some heart-healthy blueberries or raspberries.

¼ cup fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 large ripe peaches, cut in half (pit removed)
2 tbsp honey

Combine yogurt and cinnamon. Grill the peaches, covered on low or indirect heat until soft (about 2-4 minutes on each side). Drizzle with honey and serve each slice with 1 tbsp of the yogurt mixture.
