Fresh Peaches and Cream- A Healthy Version

Everyone loves a good fresh peach, right? Especially this time of year, I just can't get enough! So juicy and perfect! The Missouri peaches from the Downtown Farmer's Market are soo good! That's where these particular peaches came from. We visited the market a couple weeks ago and these babies came home with us.
In high school, a friend made a dessert of peaches and cream for her kids and I while I babysat and her and her husband enjoyed a night out. (No, this said friend was not a classmate;)  ) It's been almost 10 years and I still think about this certain dessert. It was time I tried to recreate.

I used some of my plain homemade yogurt and added to it a tablespoon of brown sugar and a teasoon of my homemade vanilla extract. Not an exact replica (I really have no idea how she made it but it was awesome!) but this version is great, too! And healthy!
