If you're in the mood for something sweet and refreshing this summer, reach for a peach! This versatile fruit isn't just extremely flavorful, it's also good for you! On average, large peaches contain about 68 calories, and no fat. Therefore, simply replacing your traditional snack with a juicy peach can help you trim your waistline. Peaches also contain plenty of vitamin C to boost your immune system and help regenerate skin tissue. If you're looking for a few ways to fit more of this delicious fruit into your diet, here are some unique ways to do so.

Put them in a pie
With fresh peaches and a few other simple ingredients, you can bake a warm and sweet peach pie. To make your pie look as delicious as it tastes, consider using a pastry wheel to cut lattice strips for a decorative topping to your perfect pie. Want to take it up a culinary notch? Try a Peach Tart. A buttery crust is paired with a creamy peach filling for a decadent dessert perfect for summer.

Stuff them
Looking for the perfect appetizer for your next get-together? Consider honey nut stuffed peaches. The soft and delicate texture of the peach contrasts beautifully with the crunchy, sweet flavor of chopped nuts.

Grill them
Burgers, chicken, and fish aren't the only foods that belong on the grill. Throwing fruit on the grill can give them a sweet and smoky taste that is perfect for any side dish or dessert. Simply halve and pit the peaches, then brush them in a thin layer of butter. Grill them about four to five minutes and top them with anything from a sprinkle of cinnamon to some savory honey butter.

Use them in sangria
Sangria is the ultimate summer cocktail. The only way it could get better is by adding a few sliced peaches! By combining the fruit with lemon verbena, lemon balm, and mint, you can have a refreshing beverage to serve at your summer dinner party.

Put them on French toast
Start your morning off the right way by whipping up a few slices of French toast and topping the stack with freshly sliced peaches. Drizzle the creation with a bit of maple syrup, powdered sugar, and cinnamon to create the ultimate sweet breakfast.

Add them to a salad
Combine wedges of ripe, yellow peaches with freshly sliced heirloom tomatoes, some Kosher salt, ground pepper, basil leaves, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil for a refreshing summer salad. The peaches offer the perfect amount of sweetness to complement the basil and tomatoes.
