Weight Loss Tips, Low Calorie Recipes for Peaches
Oh my - delicious peaches are on today's menu and don't they look good! We can prepare them in so many ways. They can be added to recipes to enhance flavors, they can be a stand-alone as dessert or become married with other healthy ingredients, they can even be used to create a tasty glaze. Let's look at a few original recipes from Diet Bites.
Peach Salsa, a diet recipe
This is a very easy recipe which takes on a few minutes to prepare. Basically, you're going to take peaches and make them into a puree - then add them to your favorite brand of salsa. You can used frozen, fresh or canned peaches for this salsa recipe.
Start by peeling fresh peaches and of course, if you're using frozen or canned then you can skip this step. Remove the seed and mash into a very fine consistency.
Generally you can accomplish this by using an old-fashioned potato masher, or you can use a blender or food processor if you wish.
Add 1 cup of pureed peaches to two cups of salsa. For a less peachy flavor, add one cup to three cups of salsa. Be sure to use quickly because it is not commercially processed it won't keep well in the refrigerator. And fresh is always best anyway, right?
Peach Glazed Ham, a diet recipe
Puree or blend one medium sized can of peaches that are packed in their natural juice. Stir in 1/4 cup of dark or light brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar.
Prepare sliced lean ham on the stove top - cooking until fully done. Add the pureed peach mixture to the pan and stir to coat the ham.
Peach Cake, a diet dessert recipe
If you are short on time you can certainly use a boxed cake mix but if you have time, try our recipe for the basic cake below.
You will need these ingredients:
2 ½ cups of all-purpose white flour
2 cups of Splenda for baking
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup of reduced fat milk
1 ½ cups of pureed peaches
3 whole eggs
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon of ground cinnamon
Simply mix all of the above ingredients into a smooth batter. Pour into a prepared pan; we recommend a bundt, tube or square pan.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about thirty to forty minutes - which will be influenced by the type of pan used as well as the size of your oven.
If using a cake mix, we recommend vanilla. Add the pureed peaches to the mix as well as the ground cinnamon. Reduce the amount of vegetable oil to 1/4 cup. Bake as directed on the commercial packaging.
This peach cake recipe makes 12 generous servings for about 140 calories each.
If you don't have Splenda for baking on hand, you can opt for real sugar but this will add about 1,600 calories to the entire recipe and quite a few more calories to the servings.
