Summary

These gorgeous “bowls” look so impressive, but they’re really easy to prepare. You’ll actually be making your own flavored greek yogurt, which is the best way to create the flavor and sweetness level just right for you. When dolloped over juicy peaches, the result is simply divine—especially when the fruit is at its peak in the spring or summer. Grilling the peaches makes this dessert uniquely sweet and smoky, but if you're looking for an even quicker dessert, you can skip the grill and leave the peaches raw.

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, honey, and vanilla.

  2. Spritz the cut side of peach halves with cooking spray and place the peaches cut-side-down on a hot grill. Grill until grill marks start to form, and the peaches are heated through, 2-3 minutes.

  3. Place each peach half onto a small plate, cut-side up. Top each half with the yogurt mixture, almonds, and mint, and serve.
