Grilling caramelizes fruit's natural sugars giving them a richer, sweeter flavor that tastes more like dessert than a healthy snack. We're using a combination of peaches, plums, and apricots, but any 6 summery stone fruits will do. For even more decadence, we're topping the fruit with low-fat yogurt and a light drizzle of honey. For extra crunch, try topping with chopped nuts—pistachios work particularly well.
