Is winter wearing you down? Perk up and let summer come to you with this non-fat sweet peach dessert!
Escape to the warmth of a winter get-away when you make this Skinny Dulce de Leche Peaches
dessert made with non-fat ingredients!
I'm tired of winter (already). But I tolerated the chill just one more time -- long enough to slide my mittened hand into the freezer case at the market and snag a bag of Cascadian Farm sliced peaches. With that, some Cinnamon Burst Cheerios and 2 other ingredients, I was ready ... for ... this ...
Easy Dulce de Leche
Heat that sweetened condensed milk in a microwave-safe glass bowl or pitcher for 6 minutes on half power. HALF POWER. That's important, or you'll spend the next 15 minutes cleaning up the sweet sticky lava that erupted in your machine. Don't ask me how I know this. Stir the stuff every 2 minutes.
While that's underway, take the thawed peach slices and put them in the top of a double boiler. If you don't have one, just use a regular sauce pan but keep the heat down LOW. Start warming up the peaches nice and slow.
Then pour the warm sweetened condensed milk over them. You don't want to get the milk even close to a boil or it will get kinda curdly looking. Just let it mingle with the peaches 'til everybody's warm and cuddly. Not curdly.
We don't want 'em mushy either. Blech. Nobody likes squishy slimy peaches. So we're warming them only a few minutes. If these were beans, we'd say cook 'em 'til they're "crisp-tender." Pull the pan off the heat when they're ready.
Cinnamon Burst Cheerios Crumbs
Now take an extra 20 seconds and pour a cup of Cinnamon Burst Cheerios into a plastic food bag. Close it and smunch it like this:
Into crumbs like this:
Put it All Together -- Yum!
Put a couple tablespoons of crumbs into each of 4 serving dishes -- or
Then ladle the peaches in there with as much or as little of the sweet cream as you want. Remember -- it's non-fat!
But it is sweet,
so some may prefer less of it. (Not me .. bring it on!)
Top with non-fat whipped topping and dust with more crumbs.
My fam couldn't tell these were frozen peaches. They tasted that fresh. My son who hates anything in the fruit section of the food pyramid actually liked this dessert too. My husband had three helpings and called it dinner.
I shut my eyes on this 8-degree day in Minnesota and found an 80-degree beach on Fiji. Hula time!
