After school snacks were always my favorite part of coming home from school (especially because I was always that type of kid that spent too much time socializing at lunch and ended up throwing my lunch away).
Here is a great snack idea to spice up your snack selection offering your kids a fun and healthy break from the norm. This recipe is easy, quick and healthy as well. In this recipe I am pairing juicy and still in season peaches with a fat free but incredibly flavorful Mango Sorbet. Dolci Gelati uses fresh mangos for our sorbet to achieve a rich sorbet that has a strong flavor punch, if you cannot find Dolci Gelati at your market any high quality mango sorbet will do.
Roasted Peach filled with Mango Sorbet
Slice Peaches down the middle and twist to open, carefully remove the seed.
Roasting peaches brings out their natural sweetness so I don’t think it’s necessary to put any sugar on them. Place peaches skin side down in a tray and sprinkle with cinnamon. Place in the oven at 450 for 20 minutes or until lightly browned (peaches are also amazing if you through them on the grill)
Remove peaches from the oven, let cool and serve them with a scoop of heavenly and slightly tart mango sorbet.
