Peaches are a delicious fruit that’s surprisingly low in calories and carbs, considering how sweet they are. A 100-gram serving of peaches has 39 calories, 9.54 grams of carbs and 1.5 grams of fiber. July is National Peach Month, and we think it’s fitting to celebrate them the same month that we celebrate the birth of our nation. They play a significant role in the U.S.’ agriculture industry and our economy.
When we think of peaches, most of us immediately think of Georgia, but Neuliven Health’s home state of California is actually the largest producer of the fruit. That explains why they are so cheap in our supermarkets at the moment while they are in season. We love eating fresh produce. While a peach is perfect just as it is, we are sharing four tasty, low-carb recipes for you to try in your own home!
Once, in a meeting, while discussing moderation versus abstinence, one of our team members said life wouldn’t be worth living if she could never have cake again. This cake, made of coconut flour and almond meal, is low in carbs and gluten-free while still being moist and scrumptious! Because it uses low-carb sweeteners and non-traditional flours, you don’t have to worry about your blood sugar! A slice has 154 calories, 3.85 grams of carbs and 1.43 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
Who doesn’t love ice cream in the summer? The problem is that the low-carb ice creams in the store are costly and often icy instead of creamy. This recipe uses a little vodka to stop the iciness. It is optional. If you’re serving it to children or avoid alcohol, you can skip it, but it does make the texture perfect. The instructions also call for an ice cream maker, but it will still work if you usually make ice cream without one. This is a delicious recipe, and we think it’s well worth your time to make it even though there is a lot of chilling and freezing time. A serving has 211 calories, 6.5 carbs and 0.8 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
If you want to make a beautiful and delicate dessert, this is the recipe for you! These individual-sized galettes are elegant but simple enough to make with kids. They will impress and delight any guests you have over this summer while also being gluten and dairy-free! A serving has 177 calories, 8.4 grams of carbs and 2.2 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
No list of peach recipes could be considered complete without a peach pie! We love this recipe because it’s presented in multiple ways. If you want to add chia to your diet, it has instructions to do that. If you would prefer to make it as a Paleo dish, there are steps for that. And each version has listed nutritional information. Additionally, we like that each pie is a serving. It helps with portion control. If you make it low-carb and without chia seeds, a serving has 153 calories, nine grams of carbs and 2.9 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
We hope these recipes spark your interest and soon grace your table. They’re a great way to celebrate the fruit this month, and you can’t go wrong with any of them!
