Chef Tips:
To coarsely crush cookies: Place cookies in large zip-top plastic bag; seal bag, pressing out excess air. With rolling pin or smooth side of meat mallet, coarsely crush cookies.

To halve peaches: With paring knife, cut each peach around center seam, then twist halves in opposite directions to separate.

Add nuts, like walnuts or pecans, for a protein boost.
