Peach Mousse - vegan, gluten free, macrobiotic, dessert with sweet deals to boot.

Summer is rapidly moving towards school starting up again, and that means there are only a few weeks left before there will be those changes I've been talking about at  Exclusive pricing will begin in August and if you want to take advantage of the current 2011 rates: Go to: right now and sign up for a session or package.  You'll be grandfathered in, and will continue your lower rates for the rest of the year.

Remember, for those who have been wanting to learn how to teach others - take advantage of the lower rates before it's too late!

Learn how to help your family, friends and start your own successful coaching practice with tools beyond food that might surprise and delight you.  Such easy processes to look and feel your best.  Even better, these are solutions that last your whole life long.  Get your kids increasing their healthy habits and they can do better in school with less effort, or uplevel your own life with a burst of youthfulness you thought you might never see again.  Anti-aging starts right here.  Energy, clarity, focus and letting go of the past for a fresh start this fall.

Great tools for a great life.

And...........let's all have a sweet cool treat.

I love peach pie, peach cobbler or crisp but really it's just too hot to turn on the oven.  I thought this delicious fruit mousse might just fit the day better, with a cookie sprinkled on top perhaps for a pie effect.  (try the shortbread cookies from the cookbook, if you have some in your freezer... ;-) )

Peach Mousse


5-6 ripe organic peaches
2 C. apple juice/cider
2 T. agar flakes
pinch sea salt
juice of 1 lemon
a bit of cinnamon (optional)
1 heaping tsp. Kudzu dissolved in a little cold water
2 T. organic Hazelnut cream (nut butter and rice syrup may be substituted.

I buy the hazelnut cream from Goldmine Natural Foods 1-800-475-3663.  It comes from Italy and is a blend of hazelnuts and rice syrup.)

Cut the peaches into chunks and add to the apple juice in a saucepan.  Add the agar and stir occasionally over med/high heat.  Careful not to boil over.  Add the sea salt and lemon juice and when the agar has dissolved.  (about 5 minutes) Then add the kudzu while stirring constantly to avoid lumps.  When the mixture comes back up to a vigorous boil remove from heat and let cool.  Then when at least mostly cooled blend in a blender with the hazelnut cream.  Pour into a bowl to fully cool in the fridge or into individual  serving bowls.  Decorate with roasted almond or hazelnut pieces.
If a denser consistency is desired, omit some or all of the lemon or add more agar or both.
