This is a tasty, healthy & colourful summer treat! I scaled the recipe in half (cooking for 2) with no problems & eliminated the sugar for dietary reasons. I removed the peach skins with a veggie peeler (hate the fuzz) & sliced them by hand (hate cleaning the food processor). There wasn't much left but I'm going to eat it for breakfast. Thanx Ellie!

I have a problem with my sugar also, so this recipe worked great for me. I cut back on the sugar, but did not cut it completely out. I made this up in the afternoon, sat it in the fridge and put it on top of my pancakes I had for breakfast. Great combination, and oh so good with those pancakes.
