{RECIPE} Grilled Peaches with Greek Yogurt and Honey

I was asked by LG Electronics to share what's in my fridge (check out this picture I took with Instagram). Because it's summer, my fridge is stocked with fruit -- peaches, strawberries, oranges, apples, avocado, watermelon, and tomatoes. I buy all my fruit at the farmer's market.

And what else is in my fridge? Butter, a must! Yogurt (especially Greek), another must!

I wanted to share something I made that's delicious and simple, using what was in my fridge. I decided to grill up some peaches and top them with Greek yogurt. We recently moved and our grill still isn't set up, so I made these using a skillet.

I added vanilla and lemon zest to the yogurt and topped the whole thing with honey. The whole thing turned out sweet and tangy, with a carmelized outside and soft fleshy inside. The best way to describe it... it tastes like summer.

GRILLED PEACHES WITH YOGURT

Ingredients:

(Makes 4 servings)

  • 2 ripe peaches
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (I used 2% fat)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest + extra for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Directions:

Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Melt just enough butter to a coat your skillet over medium low heat. Add the peaches, face down, for about 4-5 minutes. Check periodically, and flip them over when they are nicely caramelized. The more ripe the are, the faster they will brown. Turn the heat down to low and cook for another 5 minutes, or until they soften. You can test with a toothpick. Set them aside and let them cool for a couple minutes while you make the filling.

For the topping, just mix the vanilla and lemon zest into 1 cup of Greek yogurt.

Top the peaches with a spoonful of yogurt. Drizzle on some honey and add a pinch of lemon zest to garnish.

Enjoy!

LG just designed a new super-capacity 3 door French door refridgerator with Door-in-Door, which has an exclusive space for your go-to foods. They're doing a contest on Facebook where you can vote for your favorite go-to fridge foods (yogurt, juiceboxes, mustard, or diet soda) to place in the Door-In-Door.  It's fun, so you should check it out here!

For those quick trips to the fridge, the Door-in-Door is a magnetically sealed section of the refrigerator that allows you to access the door bin without opening the entire refrigerator. Due to the Door-In-Door feature, less cool air escapes when the easy access compartment is opened, keeping cold air in the rest of the fridge, where it matters most. Whether it's a refreshing drink, condiments or a healthy snack, the Door-in-Door is the ideal space for quick access to your family's go-to foods such as canned or bottled drinks, salad dressings and condiments.

RECIPE: The Best Nutty, Crunchy, Not-too-Sweet Granola

I was approached by Activa Harvest Picks to come up with a recipe that would compliment their fruit flavored yogurts. So the first thing I did was buy some Harvest Picks and try it.

I tasted the strawberry and peach flavors and I thought they were fruity (I like the little pieces of real fruit inside), creamy, tangy, sweet, and quite yummy. If you like fruit flavored yogurt, I definitely think you should try this. My husband is now a convert.

My goal was to come up with a granola recipe that would compliment the yogurt perfectly. I wanted it to be crunchy, nutty, flavorful, and not too sweet (but sweet enough), as not to overpower the yogurt. And guess what? I think I achieved it. My secret is the added salt in addition to the honey and brown sugar. I must say, this really brings out the flavors.

This granola is so simple to make and so delicious don't be surprised if you never want store-bought again.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (if you love coconut, add 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Activia Harvest Picks yogurt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, flax seeds coconut, salt, and brown sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine the honey and oil.

Combine both mixtures.

Pour the granola onto a 2" sheet pan. Spread out evenly.

Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to brown.

Pour your yogurt in a bowl or mug, top with granola and enjoy!! Yum!!

Warning: Don't leave the granola on your counter. My husband and I finished off the entire bowl in a day and a half.

New Activia Harvest Picks is a deliciously fruity and silky smooth yogurt. You will enjoy a Harvest of real fruit in every silky spoonful.
