The healthiest dessert ever

In my life, fruit is a side dish, not dessert. But in this case, I make an exception. Broiled peaches are seriously so easy and seriously so good.

Broiled Peaches – the easiest peach dessert ever

1. Get ya a pretty peach. Turn your oven broiler on high.DSC_0977

2. Cut it open and realize it’s not so pretty inside. Shrug. Place the beach slices cut side up on the pan. DSC_0978

3. Add nothing and just place these under the broiler (I put an oven rack on the top shelf for this). Broil for 5-10 minutes until bubbly and browned. And oozing deliciousness.peach dessert

4. Eat. With a spoon. Don’t burn your tongue.peach desserts

These are amazing with greek yogurt. Or, even better whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if you want to make it just a little bit more like a real dessert.

You can also stick the peaches on your grill. Just make sure your grill grate is clean, brush a little coconut oil on the peaches and then place them right on the rack. Grill on each side for 3-5 minutes!

Other fruit that grills / broils well are pears, pineapple and mango!

    Peaches are fantastic eaten any time or any way. I love roasting fruit. Pineapple is also delicious grilled with some coconut ice cream. Yum!

    that looks GREAT. I’ll have to try it!

    And about the milk. We drink whole around here… (or 2% when my baby’s hit 2). But I visited my mom (in Alaska–speaking of your Alaskan halibut) not too long ago and saw that they drink whole as well… I guess she’s been doing some research and found that whole is actually the healthiest for you. Who’d have thought?!

      Broiled grapefruit??? I’ve never even heard of such a thing. Do you just slice it in half, similar to the peach?

    Our peaches have not been very ripe and tasty this summer. Did cooking them like this help bring out the flavor? Perhaps this is what we’ve been missing!

      Yes, it did help. Our peaches have been mediocre too, which is what prompted me to try this. Much better!
