We can’t think of a more perfect summer treat than peach shortcakes! These flaky shortcakes, topped with fresh, local peaches, are a clean eating dessert that your whole family can love. With a little recipe tweaking, we have transformed this classic American sweet into guilt-free treat. Juicy peaches are taken to a whole new level by pairing them with a whole-wheat shortcake recipe and an awesome greek yogurt topping to replace the typical options of whipped cream or ice cream. Peaches are an amazing superfood so feel good about indulging a little with this recipe : )
