Nectarine Almond ‘Crumble’ with Cinnamon Yoghurt

Out of all produce seasons summer must be my favourite. Don’t get me wrong, I love winter because of its crisp air with a just the right hint of woodfire scent in it.  The transitional period between spring and summer excites a plenty because of local asparagus. Autumn is perfect for foraging, but summer, with the abundance of berries and stonefruit thrills me the most.

Nectarine Almond 'Crumble' with Cinnamon Yoghurt

It conjures up memories of childhood when we’d go away to the seaside with a whole bunch of friends, run around barefoot in the sand with salty air kissing our tanned faces and the sweet taste of cherries on our lips. I’ve always enjoyed plums and peaches, but nectarines I loved most because their flesh was sweet and the skin “non-hairy”.

They are still my favourite, but now on colder days like we’ve had yesterday (how crazy was the downpour!) I like to grill or roast them. They become soft and sweeter that way, and with the almond crumb and gut-friendly yoghurt and cinnamon, a lighter twist on the comfort crumble.

Just beautiful. Why not give them a go?

Nectarine Almond 'Crumble' with Cinnamon Yoghurt

While I am not a big sweet tooth, I absolutely adore this simple to make peach almond crumble. It has everything a crumble requires – the juicy fruit centre, a crunch of the crumble and a contrast of cool, tart yoghurt flavour with just a right hint of cinnamon, which help aid digestion. Peaches, Nectarines or Plums can be used in this recipe.
