Grilled Peaches with Blackberry Coconut Cream & Granola Recipe
My family loves fresh peaches in the summer, especially grilled peaches. This simple recipe is fantastic and only 138 calories! Healthy for your family and fancy enough for company! Only 5 ingredients (6 if you count the mint leaves for garnish!) Serves 4.
This fabulous summer recipe comes from Park Lane Pantry granola, my absolute favorite brand of granola. The granola is different than others on the market – it’s better. Why? It just is. Made from scratch, every batch is slow toasted and double baked in their Texas kitchen, resulting in flavor that’s out of this world. Created by a breast cancer survivor during her journey to health, this granola brand is soy free, dairy free, gluten free and contains no added sugar.
¼ cup Park Lane Pantry granola (order online – see coupon below for 50Plus10% discount)
4 Freestone* Peaches
4 tsp maple syrup
1 can coconut milk (full fat)
1 ½ cups blackberries
8 mint leaves
- Preheat grill to medium high and brush the cut halves of the peaches with syrup. Place cut side down on the grill and cook until you get grill marks.
- Open the can of coconut milk** and add only the cream on the top to a bowl. Whip until soft peaks form.
- In a blender, puree half of the blackberries until smooth and fold into the cream.
- To serve, top peach halves with coconut cream, a fresh blackberry, a sprinkle of Park Lane Pantry granola and garnish with a mint leaf.
*FREESTONE PEACHES: For those who don’t know the difference between varieties of peaches (I didn’t), the categorization is based on whether the fruit “clings” to the pit or not. A freestone peach, recommended for this recipe, has fruit that falls off the pit. These peaches, available mid-June to mid-august, are perfect for eating, canning and freezing. You can simply slice the peach down the middle and pull it right off the pit. In contrast, a clingstone peach has fruit that does not fall off the pit, which makes them best suited for eating, and not so good for canning or freezing. Clingstone peaches are available mid-may to early June. Your trivia team will love that you have this information!
**COCONUT MILK: Don’t be alarmed when you open a can of coconut milk and you see a solidified cream at the top with thick, syrup-like water in the bottom – that stuff at the top is what you want! Versatile coconut milk adds a rich texture and flavor to all kinds of recipes. Coconut milk It’s the ultimate convenience food; the cans sit patiently on the pantry shelf waiting for you to make something wonderful. No need to worry about choosing a good coconut at the supermarket. Coconut milk from Thailand is consistently the best – my favorite brand is Chaokoh Coconut Milk. And use the full-fat coconut milk; Reduced-fat or “lite” is just regular coconut milk with water added. You don’t need it – you can add water yourself if you want.
