Air Fryer Grilled Peaches — Juicy, sweet peaches get a major upgrade with the air fryer! This simple warm-weather dessert will hit the spot!
While most people will think of this as a grilling recipe, the air fryer does an amazing job at grilling fruits. You can grill most stone fruits; therefore, they can also be air fried up.
I love a great summer dessert, and this one is no different. When peaches are in season, please pick up a few at the local farmer’s market and head to your air fryer. Grill some up and pair it with a healthy scoop of vanilla ice cream! A perfect summer dessert! Made in minutes with the help of the air fryer.
