Raspberry Chocolate Doughnut Peaches Recipe

Raspberry Chocolate Doughnut Peaches with one open

This recipe for healthy raspberry chocolate doughnut peaches is easy and fun. The peaches have a chocolate shell and a thick layer of raspberry cashew cream. They are vegan, gluten-free and healthy. They do contain a tablespoon of date syrup but this can be replaced with any liquid sweetener like maple syrup or left out if you like it less sweet.

I’m using an 80% dark chocolate to cover the doughnut peaches as I like the bitterness with the sweet fruit. However you can use any chocolate for the glaze.

Doughnut peaches are only in season for a short time during the summer. They can also be called Saturn peaches. Once they are ripe enough the stone should just push out. Doughnut nectarines work just as well.

You can make a raw food version of this by mixing 1/3 cacao, with 1/3 coconut oil and 1/3 sweetener for the chocolate shell. I usually make the raw food version but for the video I use a bar of very dark chocolate to make it more accessible.

To make a healthy alternative to coconut oil check out my recipe for 100% coconut butter with nothing but pure coconut and nothing taken away.

Top with anything you like – I just used an assortment of colourful fruit and nuts to make them visually appealing.

My favorite version of these healthy doughnuts are the ones topped with nuts like hazelnuts or pisacahos. They give a great texture and taste to the doughnut peach.

I’m not going to lie these chocolate doughnuts are difficult to eat so you might want to use a knife and fork. Although it’s worth it as they taste every bit as good as they look and you’ll actually feel good after eating one.

What can be easier than using an actual doughnut peach to make this gluten, flour and egg free doughnuts? They are of course not deep fried and free of any transfats.

Please do excuse the finger prints on the chocolate  – it’s much harder than it looks to get a picture of something covered in chocolate in the middle of the summer. Often I’m on my hands and knees for an hour trying to make sure I get enough photos and videos so that someone actually sees the recipe.

How to eat donut peach

You know when they are ripe as the stone will just push out. Making them the easiest stone fruit ever to eat! If it won’t push out easily then it’s not ripe so place somewhere warm or in a paper bag with a banana or apple to ripen.

They’re also commonly known as Saturn peaches and were created by a mutation of the normal peach in China.
