Real: The Kitchen and Beyond
Very similar to a fruit crisp, Blueberry Peach Dessert leaves you with ZERO sugar guilt and still gives that “I had dessert” satisfaction. Even better it is such an easy dessert to make. Really, I promise! One of my favorite fruit combinations is blueberry and peach. Not only do they scream summer but they look and taste beautiful together. I dare you not to want a spoonful of this summer dessert. But first let me introduce you to my favorite zero calorie sweetener available.
I use Monk Fruit in the Raw for this recipe to add a little bit of sweet flavor but no calories. I was introduced to Monk Fruit in the Raw at Eat, Write Retreat. Before that I had never found a sugar substitute I was able to fully enjoy without losing the rich pure flavor of dessert. We sampled it in sugar cookies where there was a ratio of half sugar/half Monk Fruit and in tea. I couldn’t believe the cookies AND tea were made with it as I noticed no aftertaste AT ALL. Usually you can’t fool me.
I love Monk Fruit in The Raw because you can use it on a 1:1 ratio with sugar. It is perfect for cutting the amount of sugar in recipes (i.e., half sugar/half monk fruit), and in most recipes, it does not leave a funny artificial after taste. I don’t recommend using it in homemade whipped cream unless you use sugar substitutes already or don’t mind the taste. So far that is the only thing I found to have a slight aftertaste. If you don’t want to use Monk Fruit just substitute with the same amount of sugar.
Blueberry Peach Dessert
- 10 peaches – peeled and sliced thin (You can use frozen peaches but your dessert will be a bit soupier)
- 2 cups blueberries, washed, whole – fresh or frozen
- 2 cups rolled oats

- 1/4 cup Monk Fruit in the Raw (or skip if you really MUST but the tiny bit of sweet with 0 calories that it adds is worth it)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Pre-heat oven to 375
- Place peaches in baking dish – any size 9 x 9 x 3 or bigger works. The smaller dishes do need to be deeper to hold all the fruit.
