For the Peaches

Place peach quarters into a baking dish, sprinkle over the coconut sugar, ginger and drizzle over the vanilla and lemon juice. Toss gently, then place into the oven for 15 minutes, or until just tender.

Meanwhile, make the Mascarpone Cream. Place the cream into a stand mixer and whip for until fluffy and stiff peaks form. Add the mascarpone and whip again until combined. Add in the sugar and whip again.
