Summer Dessert

To be quite honest I wasn't planning to blog this, I wasn't even planning to make a dessert in the first place, but with the ingredients in the fridge, I couldn't help myself. It is summer, after all, and this just happens to be such a simple yet impeccable combination of flavours. Now all I need is a chair on a sunny balcony, a good book and a plateful of this.

Summer Dessert

2 peaches, cut in half and stones removed
4 tsp manuka honey blend
small punnet of strawberries, hulled and quartered
a big dollop or two of organic plain yoghurt
pinch of ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp natural vanilla extract
1 tsp raw honey
1/2 pomegranate, seeded, to serve
fresh mint, to serve

Brush the peaches with the honey and place cut side down on a grilling pan. Grill for a few minutes, then place of a platter with the strawberries.

In a bowl, mix together the yoghurt, cinnamon, vanilla and raw honey. Spoon generous dollops of the yoghurt on the fruit. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and finish with a few leaves of fresh mint.
