Is it just me, or are donuts making a popularity come-back? On our recent vacation to California, we noticed donut shops everywhere! The trend hasn’t exactly made it to Utah (that I’ve noticed), but I have a feeling it’s going to get here eventually. I can honestly say, donuts are one food I’m never tempted to “treat” my kids with. Cinnamon rolls, yes, but donuts… meh. They make you sick so fast! After one, don’t you feel awful?
Your kids won’t feel sick after eating our REAL PEACH DONUTS however. Because they really are peaches!
Peaches are in season for North America! We couldn’t be happier at my house. I can’t buy a bag of peaches without them being eaten up the first day. We really, really love them! They are a great food for your kids to eat. Peaches:
- Vision- like carrots, peaches are full of beta-carotene that support eye health!
- Fiber- we like to keep our kids “regular”, and fiber is the way to do it!
- Vitamin C- Oranges can’t get all the credit, peaches are also a great source of vitamin C, helping kids fight infections and bugs.
So, with all the donut talk, and me never wanting to purchase any, I decided to make a fun peach donut for our snack yesterday! It was super easy.
Simply, cut peaches cross-ways, so the pit is in the center. Scoop out a little extra of the center with a melon baller to make a circle. Freeze the peach rings for about 30 minutes to make it easier to dip in yogurt.
Second, lining a pan with wax paper, dip in yogurt. I used two kinds of yogurt. Plain, and a mint chocolate chip yogurt! Oh my goodness!! that tastes like mint chocolate chip ice cream!
Then, add your toppings. We used:
- chocolate sprinkles (on the mint chocolate chip one)
- and regular sprinkles
- Cinnamon Sugar
Return to freezer again until frozen! They were perfect for us after about 3 hours. Then, I had to let it sit out for about 10 minutes just to make them easy to bite through.
Our favorite one- CINNAMON SUGAR!! 100%, hands down, it was delicious!
