MRE RECIPE: Raspberry Peach Yum

Don't you just love what I named this?  Okay, so raspberries and peaches taste beautifully together, and I like sending a dessert with Hubby to work.  So... I came up with this. Super-healthy and a nice way to end a lunch in the midst of a busy day.

1/2 cup peach dices
1/4 cup raspberry powder
1 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot (thickener)
3 tsp raw sugar
pinch nutmeg

In separate baggie, 1/2 cup crumbled sugar cookies.

Combine fruit, thickener, sugar and spice in one baggie and seal. Place crumbled cookies in a second baggie and seal. To enjoy, rehydrate the fruit, sugar and spices with very hot water for 10 minutes, and when ready, top with crumbled sugar cookies.

-Gluten-Free: There are a lot of pre-made gluten-free cookies on the market. Choose a sugar-cookie and go to town!
-Dairy-Free: No dairy in here! One could make this creamy by adding a little rice milk powder to the fruit.
-Low-Sugar: Substitute stevia instead of sugar for a low-sugar version. Remember that stevia is VERY sweet so reduce the amount by at least half.
