These Healthy Air Fryer Peaches are the perfect summer dessert that is easy to prepare but tastes incredibly flavorful. Top these air fryer peaches with vegan ice cream and caramel for an amazing treat.

Healthy Air Fryer Peaches

I decided to prepare these Healthy Air Fryer Peaches and drizzle Pineapple Caramel Sauce over them and serve with a scoop of vegan coconut ice cream or Coconut Whipped Cream. It was so delicious my hubby bought more peaches the following day so I could make more.

As I’m on the brink of middle age, I decided that I really need to focus even more on self-care. One of the things I decided to do is eliminate or reduce the use of free oils in my cooking. I have done it before so it is not hard to do, but an Air Fryer really makes it easier. 

I love the fact that using the air fryer is easy, I don’t have to warm up the oven or use the grill for preparing 2 peaches for my hubby and I. The air fryer cooks the peaches to perfection without oil or butter, so they are lower in calories, yet taste amazing with the caramelized flavor.

Healthy Air Fryer Peaches

These guilt-free air fryer peaches are the way to go for a delicious dessert without unwanted calories. I recommend you use juicy ripe peaches because they are naturally sweeter. 

I find the best peaches are usually grown locally, if you refrigerate your peaches they will stop ripening so make sure to refrigerate when fully ripened.

To tell if a peach is ripe, you will notice that the ripe peach has a fragrant scent at the stem. This method is not the best but you can press gently into the skin and if there is a give and it actually feels soft to the touch, then your peach is ripe, if not leave out on the counter for a day or two. Peaches ripen very quickly in the summertime so be sure to keep an eye on them.
