Grilled Peaches with Gingersnaps

Ingredients

  • 1 firm peach, halved and pitted

  • 1 teaspoon canola oil

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 4 scoops vanilla fat-free frozen yogurt

  • 2 gingersnap cookies, crumbled

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Brush peach halves with canola oil.

  2. Place peach halves on the preheated grill. Grill until tender and peach is warmed through, about 10 minutes. Place the hot peach on a plate skin-side down. Sprinkle with brown sugar, allowing the sugar to melt. Alternatively, use a small torch to caramelize the sugar.

Red, White, and Blue Poolsicles

Red, White, and Blue Poolsicles

You will need:

  • Popsicle mold

  • 6 popsicle sticks (if not included)

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ cup water

  • ½ cup strawberries

  • ¾ cup of yogurt

  • ¼ cup pineapple juice

  • 1 ½ cups blue sports drink

Serving size:

  • 6 popsicles

Directions:

  1. To make a simple syrup, combine the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, mixing to dissolve the sugar. Reduce to a simmer, and cook for two minutes.

  2. Rinse your strawberries, and cut them in half.

  3. Combine the strawberries and simple syrup and let macerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  4. Puree the strawberry mixture in the blender until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove any seeds or lumps.

  5. Fill 1/3 of each mold with your strawberry mixture. Put the red layer in the freezer for at least 45 minutes to set up before adding the white layer.

  6. To prepare the white layer, use yogurt and mix in any fruit juices - we used pineapple juice.

  7. Once the red layer has been in the freezer for 45 minutes, fill 1/3 of the mold with the white yogurt layer. Put the popsicles in the freezer for another 45 minutes to set up.

  8. Once the red and white layers set up, fill the remaining 1/3 of the molds with blue sports drink.

  9. Insert popsicle sticks (if needed) and place in the freezer for about 3 hours, or until frozen.

  10. Remove mold from the freezer for defrosting. To speed up the process, run the mold under warm water to loosen the popsicles from the mold. ENJOY!
