Peach is my one-year-old’s favorite fruit these days. He even wakes up asking for it early in the morning. He loves it plain during day, but to make it a more like a breakfast food, I drizzle a little honey over chopped peaches. This simple honey drizzled peaches inspired me to make a simple peach dessert to serve some friends and Pan seared peaches topped with yogurt, pistachios, blueberries and honey came out.
This is not a kind of dessert I’ve been making for years. To tell you the truth, I had never cooked peach either in oven or in pan except making peach jam. I really regret those years because I feel like I’ve found the best peach dessert ever! And it’s the easiest thing ever as well!
We mostly have peaches as they are. If they are already sweet enough they can serve as a good dessert. However, you can make it a perfect dessert with a kick. Pan seared peaches are wonderful as they are and you might think they don’t need anything else. Look at that caramelized peach, who can resist that little sticky juice coating all the fruit?
You can definitely top these amazing pan seared peaches with ice cream or whipped cream, but I wanted to make a skinny dessert which will be a better option for summer. That’s why I topped ours with Very Thick Homemade Greek Yogurt. Also, I think honey goes better with yogurt.
We serve these peaches warm, so we used a little blueberries to give a little refreshment. You can use other berries or just leave it out and garnish your peaches with fresh mint leaves. I think crispy peanuts make a wonderful final touch.
