Peaches and Cottage Cheese With Agave Syrup

“This is a wonderfully simple dessert or snack. The combination of rose water and hazelnut extract is often overlooked, and this is a nice way to try it out with complimentary ingredients. It is also a good recipe for diabetics and hypoglycemics- I am the latter- and this is one of the few dessert experiments I have tried that satisfies my sweet tooth with a small helping, is completely healthy, and doesn't give me a sugar high or low afterward. Start with 1 tbsp. agave syrup and 1/2 tsp. hazelnut extract until you determine your taste preference. I recommend organic for all these ingredients, if possible, especially the cottage cheese.”
