Peaches and Cream

Peaches and Cream

2 Peaches

1 Tbsp sugar

1/2 cup whipped cream*

* Non-dairy option: soak 1/2 cup raw cashews and 4 pitted dates in water for 2 hours. Drain water. Put nuts and dates in blender, and fill with water so they are just covered. Add vanilla extract, blend until creamy consistency.

Quarter and cut peaches into small chunks. Put into glass container and sprinkle with sugar. Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours, allowing the fruit to macerate. Serve chilled with a dollop of cream.
