How much do you love peaches? We sure do! Peaches are soft and juicy and they get sticky-sweet when baked, making them perfect for desserts, like cobblers. One of the best-loved ways to enjoy cobblers, or any peachy dessert for that matter, is with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream — peaches and cream, anyone? The best news is, we can easily veganize the buttery crumbles that go on cobblers, the whipped cream, and ice cream!
But, we also know that there are so many different ways to enjoy this bright and beautiful stone fruit, so we’ve gone and gathered peachy desserts of all kinds for you to try. Get ready for the best and brightest treats featuring peaches!
