Creamy Pan-Fried Peaches

There are many reasons I love the changing of seasons. Perhaps the main one being the new selection of produce at the market. This year I am particularly excited for peaches! (I'm sure you've figured that out given the topic of this blog post, Pan-Fried Peaches!).

In my opinion, summer desserts in general should be kept fairly simple. Not only does it fit the style of the season (easy-going), the fruits are already so sweet and full of flavor, you really don't need to bury them into some complicated dish. 

That's why you NEED this recipe in your life for summer. Creamy Pan-Fried Peaches! A simple, yet elegant dish that really just highlights what mother nature gave us. This dish is sweet, juicy, warm, and creamy. It's also dairy free! Serve with a side of dairy free ice-cream and I guarantee you will fall in love. 

The best part is that these creamy pan-fried peaches are so quick and easy to make and you probably have everything you need already at home. I love when that happens! 

Try it out and let me know what you think. Enjoy! 

Serving Size: 3-4

Ingredients:

  • 4 fresh peaches, pitted and halved
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons agave (or maple syrup)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoons brown sugar (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine peaches, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Using your hands, rub the peaches with the cinnamon and sugar until they are well and evenly coated. 
  2. Add oil to a frying pan and heat over medium-high heat. Add the peaches to the skillet, spreading them evenly. Sear the peaches for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from heat.
  3. Transfer the peaches to a rimmed plate with cut side up. Pour almond milk into the middle of the peaches and then the rest into the bottom of the plate. Drizzle with agave and sprinkle with more cinnamon if desired. Serve immediately.

Notes:

  1. You can heat the almond milk in a saucepan while the peaches are cooking if you would like it warm instead of cold on the peaches. 
  2. Check the tenderness of the peaches after cooking to see if they are soft enough for your liking. If not, fry them for an additional 1-2 minutes.
