Peach Cereal

Peach Cereal

I love fruit, especially stone fruit. Every year, as summer approaches, I look forward to enjoying months of apricots, plums, cherries, and of course peaches. Whether they're served in salads, grilled, baked, or as is, stone fruits are both sweet and tart and pair well with a variety of ingredients.

My mom has never really had a sweet tooth, so there wasn't a lot of baking tarts or pies growing up. My experiences and memories with stone fruit were therefore limited for many years to eating them as is or in salads. I'm not complaining. The fruits were so fresh that it was like eating candy anytime you took a bite out of one of them. And, summer breakfasts were often bowls of, what my brother called, 'peach cereal' or peaches and milk. The weather was hot and humid, so this made for a refreshing way to start the day. Not to mention it's quick, simple, light, and de-li-cious!

Peach Cereal

2 medium yellow peaches, refrigerated or room temperature.
1-2 teaspoons sugar or honey, to taste

Cut peaches in quarter-inch slices and place them in a cereal bowl, and sprinkle the sugar or honey over them.
Pour milk and cover about half the peaches in milk, and enjoy!

I love anything in the peach family: peaches, nectarines, plums... I just had my 3-year-old nephews try nectarines for their first time, and they loved it. This "peach cereal" will be a great way to enjoy these fruits without overdoing things. The picture is so beautiful!!

@Reiko - Thank you very much! There's nothing fancy or complicated about this "dish", but if you like milk and peaches, then you're guaranteed to enjoy this. Do let me know, if your nephews try it, how they like it. Congrats again on, what's now 1st place, Foodbuzz's Top 9 today.
