If there’s one thing we know about our readers, it’s that you guys really love a good air fryer recipe. Every time we post a new healthy air fryer recipe, it quickly becomes one of our most popular recipe posts that week. We think these Healthy Air Fryer “Grilled” Peaches will top the charts!

Our Air Fryer French Fries and Air Fryer Salt and Vinegar Chips are some of our favorite air fryer recipes to top the list. We also love our staples like Air Fryer Pizza Rolls, Air Fryer Honey Mustard Chicken Bites and of course, our crowd-pleasing 5-Minute Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp, which continue to get pinned and shared like nobody’s business.

The popularity of these air fryer recipes is no coincidence. They’re delicious, they’re guilt-free and they couldn’t be any easier to make. Plus, anyone can enjoy them, which is a big plus for those trying to get healthy while also trying to feed a family.

You guys aren’t the only ones who love air fryers. We have always been big fans. What can be bad about a piece of equipment that miraculously makes healthy foods taste like your fast food favorites? We are realists. We know that if you’re a big fried food lover, expecting you to forego all your favorites and suddenly transition to a diet comprised solely of green smoothies and raw veggies is setting you up for failure. Our feeling has always been that the best diet is the one you’ll actually stick with. That’s why we include perfectly portioned versions of pasta, pizza, chocolate and ice cream on our Nutrisystem menu. Being healthy doesn’t have to mean giving up all the things that make you happy. By enabling you to enjoy the fried food flavor you love without all of the added junk, air fryers help keep versions of your favorite guilty pleasures on the menu.

Plus, air fryers make cooking so much easier. Making healthy foods is simply a matter of plugging your air fryer in, popping your food in the basket and pushing a few buttons. Your delicious, healthy food is ready in mere minutes. We should also mention that with an air fryer, clean-up is a breeze. Who wouldn’t want to avoid a sink full of dirty pots, pans and baking sheets?

With all the awesome benefits of air fryers, it’s probably no surprise that we keep asking our recipe developers at the Leaf to come up with more delicious and healthy air fryer recipes. This time, they outdid themselves. These Healthy Air Fryer Peaches are simply divine. There’s really no other way to say it.

Nothing screams warm weather more than sweet, juicy, fresh peaches. The only thing that’s better than fresh peaches is air fried peaches. When they’re air fried, peaches get this taste and texture that is quite honestly unparalleled. They taste like the warm, sweet filling in your favorite peach pie or peach cobbler. Check out these sweet reasons why peaches are an amazing go-to fruit for summer weight loss.

Peaches are tasty on their own, which means you can enjoy them as a sweet mid-day snack idea. They are also the perfect topping for so many things. From fresh summer salads to yogurt, cottage cheese and “nice cream,” oatmeal, puddings, waffles and pancakes, the sweet flavor of peaches complements pretty much every meal, snack and dessert. They’re also pretty unbelievable when topped with cool whip and chopped nuts.

Perhaps the most amazing thing about these delicious Air Fryer Peaches is how easy it is to make them. The ingredient list is just two slightly underripe peaches. Seriously, that’s all you need. And there’s no guilt needed for this delectable treat because you’re eating an incredibly healthy superfood. Take a peek at this article highlighting the juicy and nutritious peach.

Here’s how you can quickly and easily make your healthy peach recipe using an air fryer:

Start by preheating your air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While your air fryer warms up, prep your peaches. Simply rinse them off, slice them in half and remove the pit. Next, place the peach slices cut-side-up in your air fryer basket. Then just cook your peaches for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until they start withering and become golden brown on top. That’s it!

Tasty Tip: Top your fried peaches with a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of nuts for a sweet and healthy dessert! Just make sure to count these extras in your daily food journal. Check out our Grocery Guide to learn how to count different grocery additions.

If you’re new to the wonderful world of air fryers, this is the perfect recipe to start with since it is so easy. If you’re pretty much an air fryer pro by now, this is one of those recipes you can have cooking while you knock out your to-do list.

Either way, this is definitely a healthy air fryer recipe you need to try-especially if you’re trying to eat better and stay on track with your health, wellness and diet goals. That’s because, in addition to delivering delicious and refreshing fruity flavor, peaches also contain healthy body-boosting nutrients like vitamin C, fiber, potassium and iron. All for fewer than 60 calories per serving! Seriously, somebody pinch us.

If you’re on the Nutrisystem weight loss plan, one of these tasty fruits counts as just one SmartCarb. That means you can use them to add a flavor boost to your favorite Nutrisystem meal (they taste amazing on everything from our Homestyle Pancakes to our Grilled Chicken Sandwich!), as part of a delicious Flex Meal (Hello, peach oatmeal and peach parfaits), or as a sweet mid-day snack. We love making kebabs using these peaches, a few basil leaves and some mozzarella cheese balls.

Since this air fryer recipe makes two full servings, you can bring a loved one in on the sweet treat action. Or, if you just can’t part with your peaches, you can save one for tomorrow.
