Plus Grilled Peaches with Brown Butter Sauce and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Recipe


Summer is officially here, and you know what that means—peach season! I adore this time of year when peaches are in their prime. Not only are they deliciously juicy and perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth, but they also come with a plethora of health benefits that make them a must-have in your summer diet. Today I’m sharing some amazing benefits of peaches and a mouth-watering recipe that will make your summer even sweeter!

Peaches are more than just a tasty treat; they are packed with nutrients that can boost your health in several ways. 

Peaches are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. Vitamin A is essential for maintaining good vision and healthy skin, while vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect your cells from damage and supports your immune system. One medium peach provides about 15% of your daily vitamin C needs!

Peaches contain a high fiber content. Dietary fiber is crucial for digestive health as it helps regulate bowel movements and prevent constipation. A medium peach contains around 2 grams of fiber, contributing to your daily fiber intake and promoting a healthy gut. Additionally, peaches are low in calories and have a high water content, making them a perfect snack for staying hydrated and feeling full without overindulging.

Peaches contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Research has shown peaches contain beneficial plant compounds such as polyphenols and flavonoids. These compounds can help reduce inflammation in the body and lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Moreover, the potassium found in peaches can aid in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels by balancing out the effects of sodium.

Now that you know how amazing peaches are for your health, let’s dive into a delicious recipe that will make you fall in love with them even more. If you're craving something sweet, you need to try this grilled peaches with brown butter sauce and vanilla bean ice cream recipe!


  • 4 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • Vanilla bean ice cream


  1. Start by making your brown butter sauce. Brown your butter in a small pan over medium heat, then pour it into a small bowl.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of honey, and a pinch of cinnamon to the browned butter. Mix it all together until well combined. 
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill your peach halves for 2-3 minutes on each side until they are nicely charred and tender.
  4. Top the grilled peaches with the brown butter sauce and serve with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

BONUS: if you want a bit of a crunch, you can also add granola as a topping!
