Sauteed Peaches

It’s summertime, and fortunately stone fruit is in season, because I saw an episode of Chopped where someone made sauteed peaches with brown sugar and butter, and I had to immediately make it myself!

Since I was going to the store anyway, I grabbed some vanilla bean-flavored coconut milk ice cream. (I really do try to stay away from dairy!)

The recipe below reflects what I consider to be (a bit more than) one serving, since I was just making it for me. It’s very easily multiplied though!


  • 1/2 peach – diced into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar

Melt the butter in a small skillet, throw in the peaches and brown sugar, and let them cook until fork tender, about 5 minutes. I made sure to stir and evenly coat everything. (Next time, I might let them cook a little longer to get mushier – but that’s a personal preference.) If you’re using it to top some ice cream, let it cool a bit first so you don’t have an immediate ice cream soup.

This was pretty tasty – though I think the coconut flavor in the ice cream was a bit clashy with the peaches. And yes, using butter in the sauté counteracts anything I was trying to accomplish with non-dairy ice cream, but I digress. (I’d considered using my coconut oil to saute, and am glad I opted out because that would have been coconut central, and not in a good way!)

Anyway – this is a simple, summer recipe you can make easily… and without having to turn on your oven! Feel free to search the web for similar recipes that include alcohol!

  3. Wow, this looks really good! I would never have thought of making them this way, but I might have to try!!!


    1. For some reason cooked fruit always sounds weird to me – but if they do it on tv, and I’m watching… 😉 Let me know what you think if you try it!
