Something Sweet & Simple: Nectarines with whipped Honey Mascarpone

I’m in need of summer comfort food right now. Today I got a rhomboid muscle strain or spasm, which pretty much is in the upper back inbetween the shoulder blades which hurts immensely; but what hurts more than anything right now is the fact that I am going to have to be on pause with the whole working out factor because I just can’t and simple put: WORKOUT!! (that’s me shouting…I am so disappointed).

I know this isn’t the end of the world and that this is happening for a reason, as I have been working 12 hours 7 days a week non-stop since June and will continue till September (which is why I haven’t been blogging as much) but I haven’t stopped working out; OK well maybe I went from working out 6 days a week to 5 days a week but I have been on a roll, no matter how tired I am I still make time to work out and now I can’t even if I wanted to!! 😦

I guess I just have to deal with it, like many things in life this isn’t the worst thing that could happen but it is going to be tough to get out of this routine that I so much love. I guess its also a form of therapy for me and I just am afraid of not doing it anymore. And more so for how long I won’t be able to workout because as research shows it could take quite a few weeks to heal. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that mine will be only a couple of days.

With all that being said I just need something sweet and simple (other than the hubby) to comfort me that isn’t too heavy or fattening (as seeing that I can’t workout) but that can still hit the spot and this is exactly the dessert I am talking about. It’s totally seasonal, refreshing and so fast to make that you could whip it up without having to whip yourself out of shape (pun intended).
You can make the nectarines the day before or the morning of or whenever just make sure to allow them to sit for a bit. Enjoy!

Ingredients:Serves 4

For the Nectarines:

  • 4 Nectarines
  • 2 tbsp. Honey
  • 3 tbsp. Cointreau
  • 1 tsp. powder Ginger

For the Mascarpone:

  • 250 gr. Mascarpone
  • 3 tbsp. Honey

Slice the Nectarines and place them in a bowl with rest of ingredients cover and place in fridge for atleast 2 hours.

Once you’re ready to serve whip the Mascarpone with honey until smooth, a minute of two.

Serve your Nectarines topped with a few dollops of Mascarpone.
*If you like you could top with some Graham Cracker Crumbs, Crispy Granola, Nuts or just leave plain; you decide. Ciao

  1. Hi, loving your blog – clearly because i follow you! Even though you have an upper injury or strain, you can still do a Stationary Bike SIT for 10 mins followed but some lunges in sets. Hard and fast for 20 mins is enough. I do this when i get upper injury. I used to do alot of upper weight workouts and strains left me wondering about the whole weight training thing for years. But i now work around it to give more rest from these by doing alot of other things. I don’t stop.. even hard walking which i can do for a week or more and not loose body tone and size if i eat well – whatever you do, keep moving in some way; this is still working the body out 🙂

    • Wonderful advice, I will take up on walking and then potentially also some biking, well I already do that considering that I bike 15 min to work everyday and then back so a total if 30 min.
      Thanks so much for your support and for following mythineats.


  2. That looks so simple and delicious. I have to try and invest in that cheese. I hope you get better soon by the way! I know it’s hard having to pause on staying as active as you like. Maybe some simple stretching for now? Glad you were able to put this recipe up though 🙂

    • I hope that you are able to try this recipe out because it really is just so delicious.
      Thanks so much for your kind words and the support.

  3. So simple, yet so tasty looking, I’ll get nectarines this week-end with the mascarpone, I already know it will be good!! Take care and don’t get down, listen to your body and you’ll be fine.

    • Thanks Momma Bear!

      Yeah I guess that taking a break and focusing on other things is actually a good thing.
      Try it out and let me know how you like it. Love you and miss you!

  4. Sorry to hear about your injury; I know how much of a pain (no pun intended) it can be to have to stop working out. But it is for the best, I’m sure. The nectarines look delicious, too!

    • Well thank you. It has been hard but I’m sure I’ll be fine soon.

      Thanks for stopping by mythineats
