Smart Shopping Tips
- When buying fresh peaches, give them a sniff. They should be fragrant and smell sweet. They should also yield to slight pressure and not feel hard.
- Unripe peaches can be placed in a paper bag on the counter for a few days to ripen. Store ripe peaches in the refrigerator. Use them within a week.
- Read the labels on yogurt and choose those with less sugar.
- If using canned peaches, look for those stored in juice or light syrup.
- You can adjust the ingredients for what you have on hand. Use any kind of juice, yogurt or fruit.
- Add some chopped strawberries (fresh or frozen) for a pop of color.
- Muffin cups can be used instead of paper cups.
- Popsicle sticks can be used in place of spoons.
