In the world of healthy living, there is always room for dessert. Creating desserts with in-season produce makes eating clean a whole lot easier. Peaches are a sweet, low-calorie fruit that contain countless vitamins and minerals such as vitamins E and K, niacin, iron, choline, potassium, and magnesium, just to name a few. They’re available all the way from May into September, but they are at their juiciest in July and August.
