Sweet endings: Poached peaches

By Mayo Clinic Staff

A healthy diet doesn't have to mean skipping dessert. Try this healthy option. Cook 1 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 vanilla bean (split and scraped) in a saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves. Simmer until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Pit and quarter 4 large peaches. Add them to the saucepan and poach over low heat for about 5 minutes. Transfer peaches to small bowls and garnish with a pinch of cinnamon or a sprig of fresh mint.
