Raw Peach Cobbler

Since I did my first Conscious Cleanse 1.5 years ago, I have been cleaning up my meals a lot because when I eat mostly according to the rules of the Conscious Cleanse, I feel my best.

Years ago, one of my favorite desserts was fruit cobbler, especially peach cobbler. But it was definitely a splurge food, containing lots of sugar, butter, flour, and eggs.

Eating healthy doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the flavors of your favorite dishes. You just have to modify the dishes a bit. I therefore experimented with making a raw peach cobbler. This one is definitely a winner – flavorful, yet healthy and “clean.” It may not be the ideal food while you are cleansing as it combines nuts and fruits, but it’s a good choice while getting ready for a cleanse or the rest of the year.

Raw Peach Cobbler

Servings: Three
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup raisins – I used Trader Joe’s raisin medley – make sure the raisin you buy don’t have added sugar!
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter – I used raw almond butter
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt
  • 4 peaches
  • 1 –2 teaspoons lemon juice
  1. Slice three peaches into bite-size pieces and layer them into small serving dishes.
  2. Take the pit out of one peach and process it in a food processor with the lemon juice.
  3. Spread the pureed peach over the layered peaches.
  4. Puree the raisins, nut butter, cinnamon, salt, and pecans in the food processor until the mixture is crumbly.
  5. Crumble the raisin/nut mixture over the peaches.
  6. Put the cobbler into the fridge for at least 30 minutes so it can set.
  7. Enjoy!
We all like this healthy, flavorful dessert. The riper and more flavorful the peaches are, the better the cobbler. This cobbler certainly makes eating healthy a joy.
