Low Carb Peach Dessert
When they’re in season, peaches are one of my absolute favorite fruits. Like most things, peaches can be made into a low carb dessert as long as you’re mindful of portion size. Keep in mind that you don’t need to eat an entire large peach to get tons of peach flavor!
This Almond Vanilla Chia Pudding with Peach Pie Topping has 9g net carbs (net carbs = total carbs – fiber). Compare that with approximately 38g net carbs in a slice of peach pie (check out more nutrition info for peach pie on the USDA website).
Here are a few other ideas on how to make a low carb peach dessert:
- Combine peaches with a lower carb fruit, such as raspberries
- Use peaches as a topping for low carb ice cream, cheesecake, or pound cake so you get the flavor of peaches without the need to use a huge quantity
- Cut peaches into small pieces and stir them into a low carb ice cream, so you get little bits of peaches throughout
