These Pan Seared Peaches are so easy to make with 6 ingredients. This is a healthy fruit dessert recipe that can still satisfy your sweet tooth.
This is the world’s easiest, healthiest yet tastiest peach dessert ever! Simplicity always wins and this recipe is no exception. You can simply make these Pan Seared Peaches with Yogurt in a couple of minutes right before your guests arrive and with no doubt impress them.
This is such a wonderful dessert that if someone asks for a second plate, you can run into the kitchen and make another batch right away. You will be surprised how such a simple and easy dessert can become the most favorite of the night. No need to say that everyone will admire you for satisfying their sweet tooth with such a guilt-free almost creamy peaches bursting with very well-balanced sweet and tangy flavors!
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.

I just made this as a late-night snack with a few modifications: I added a splash of balsamic vinegar and sprinkled some granola on top. I might consider switching the yogurt for vanilla ice cream and serving this as a summertime dessert. Delish!
Glad you liked this simple dessert! And your twist sounds brilliant! Thanks for sharing 🙂
An apple is an excellent thing -- until you have tried a peach
what a lovely summery dessert!

i'm loving all the great peaches recipes that i'm seeing at the moment. i have never pan seared peaches before, definitely something that i will be trying!
The best thing about this dessert is that it's not heavy unlike most desserts. This has become my favorite peach dessert ever! Hope you like it as much as I do.
I made this last night & it was a big hit!! It wasn't to sweet for me either. This is a keeper & will have again while peaches are in season.
Glad you liked the recipe! A simple treat that doesn't make us feel guilty, right?
