Peaches with chocolate ripple yoghurt
820g (1 can) peach halves in syrup
50g plain chocolate chips
8 tablespoons plain yoghurt
Small bowl x 4
- Drain the peaches and save 1½ tablespoons of the syrup.
- Heat the syrup in the pan. Remove from the heat when it starts to bubble. Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted.
- Divide the peach halves between the 4 bowls. Top the peaches in each bowl with 2 tablespoons of yoghurt.
- Drizzle over the hot chocolate sauce, swirling it through the yogurt. Serve immediately.
- Instead of peaches you could use canned pears or pineapple chunks.
- Try sprinkling some chopped nuts or toasted oats over the finished dish.
- Use frozen yoghurt in place of plain yoghurt for a summer treat!
- Canned peaches can be high in sugar. Choose ones that are packed with water instead of syrup or use fresh peaches instead. A medium fresh peach only has about 40 calories, a negligible amount of fat and provides about 2g of dietary fibre.
- Packed with calcium and protein, yoghurt is a great snack choice. Some yoghurts also have probiotics, which contain good bacteria for a healthy gut and vitamin D, another bone-building nutrient. For a healthier option, choose low-fat yoghurt more often.
- Chocolate contains flavonoids, which are antioxidants that help the body repair damaged cells, reducing the risk of heart disease and other chronic diseases.
