Lazy Girl's Peach Cobbler

So this is my latest dessert obsession:

I like to call it Lazy Girl's {or Boy's} Peach Cobbler.

On the way home from the Ranch we made another stop in Fredricksburg, TX to buy some of their amazing fresh peaches. When we were there we also decided to sample their ice cream, which they served with fresh syrupy peaches on top. It was sooooo good.

The following night my sweet Hubs surprised me by bringing home light vanilla ice cream and trying to recreate the peach sauce.

And I have to say, I think his version was BETTER than the one we bought! Plus, I spruced it up into a cobbler-esque dessert by adding a few simple toppings and then it was REALLY out of this world delicious!

The Ingredients:

1 fresh peach, peeled and diced
1 packet of Splenda {or other sweetener}

vanilla ice cream
sprinkle of cinnamon

To make the "peach sauce" just mash up the peaches and the sweetener with a fork or a potato masher until the juices start to come out.

Scoop ice cream into a bowl. Top with the peach sauce, sprinkle with some cinnamon, and then top with granola.

OMG. Sooooo good! And really not all that horrible for you...especially if you use light ice cream or yogurt.

Ohhhh yogurt. This would make a really delicious breakfast concoction too by subbing greek yogurt for the ice cream. Mmmmmm. Now my gears are turning again!


  1. I love making quick, single-serve desserts like this! In the winter I do it with microwaved "baked" apples too.

  2. Ooh yum! I really want to try that.

  3. Oh, that looks wonderful..

    note to self: pick up peaches at farmer's market

  4. This looks delicious! I love that your husband brought home the ice cream to recreate it:) It's totally something my husband would do too. I also loved catching up on your previous posts. The pictures and story from your weekend were amazing! And, do you know yet where you're moving to? Or did I just read too much too fast and forgot by the time I started commenting?

  5. You didn't miss it! :) We're probably moving to Arizona (Fort Huachuca). We lived there for a few months shortly after getting married so we are pretty familiar with it.


Comments make my day! Please leave one. :)
