Chilled Peach Soup Recipe

08.07.13 by Jackie

Baby Aria and I spent the day in our garden. She helped me trim the basil plants and gather ripe peaches in large baskets. Since the skin of this specific variety of peach is very fuzzy, they couldn't be eaten as is because it could have irritated her throat. So I blanched the fruit and peeled the skin. The skin unveiled a beautiful yellow flesh and the stone was easy to remove because the fruit was so ripe. They were very flavorful and sweet. 

I made syrup flavored with kaffir lime and ginger and poached the halved peaches for a few minutes. You could garnish the chilled peach soup with other small-sized fruits such as berries. I wanted to impart an Asian flair to the light snack, so I paired it with purple mangosteens. The result was spectacular.

Granola Parfait Recipe (with Jackfruit and Mangosteen) Recipe

Granola parfaits are usually made of layers of fruit, a dairy product and granola. The key is to balance the different textures of the various elements. As is true of almost any recipe, the quality of the ingredients plays a huge role in the end product. I got a bag of “Plain Jane” granola from Sarah over at Nuts About Granola (www.nutsaboutgranola.com), and it's incredible, so that part of equation was taken care of.

To contrast the peanut and cinnamon flavored granola, I gave the recipe a tropical Asian twist by using fresh mangosteens and jackfruit. They were naturally sweet so no additional sugar was necessary. Canned fruit would also work fine. I also decided to use fromage blanc in place of the more common yogurt. Fromage blanc literally translates to "white cheese". It's widely available in France and I'm lucky to be able to buy it at my local market. The consistency is similar to soft, healthier cream cheese. I sweetened it with a little stevia and honey.

Whether you want to serve it for breakfast or as a snack, this delicious treat will satisfy your sweet tooth!
