"I made this as one of my 4th of July desserts. My mother in law found out recently she's a diabetic. I knew this would be perfect since se loves anything with peaches. She took a taste and loved it! I'm checking this site for a lot of holiday diabetic desserts.'cause I love cooking and baking with sugars and ect, but need to find healthy ones for my momma in law. Thank you taste of home and creator of this gelato. Great hit!!"
