Eager to stock up on this hot commodity I bought a bunch of peaches but then was wondering what to do with them.

Read on to learn how to make this delectable no added sugar treat.

Types of peaches 

The question, “Are peaches fruit?” comes up often. In case you were wondering the answer is yes. What makes this a fruit is the flesh grows around the pit inside. 

Globally there are over 2,000 peach varieties, however, we will be concerned with a few types for this particular recipe.

There are two types of peaches: freestone and clingstone. The flesh in freestone peaches is not attached to the pit. Clingstone peaches are just what their name implies. The flesh clings to the pit. 

Cling peaches are better for eating. They are also the type you will find in commercial use as well as a can of peaches.

Alternatively, freestone peaches are the ones you want to use in this recipe. As they are better for cooking and baking.

Freestone peaches are also the most common ones on the market. If you’re concerned about using the right you can also ask what type of peach your store or farmer’s market carries

Another thing that varies between peaches is the color. There are yellow and white peaches.

The name peach comes from the color of the fruit’s flesh. Yellow peaches have yellow flesh on the inside. The outside of these peaches ranges from light yellow to orangy yellow with red stripes.

White peaches have pale yellow flesh and are a little pinker in skin color than yellow peaches.

What are peaches good for?

When you think of peaches you may just think of a snack. However, this tasty fruit is great boiled, baked, grilled, or made into jam.

White peaches are softer and don’t hold up as well as yellow peaches when baked. So stick to the yellow variety when air-frying peaches.

What do peaches taste like?

The flavor pallet of peaches has to do with the amount of acid in each fruit. Yellow peaches have more acidity than white peaches. 

While white peaches are slightly sweeter due to their lower acidity, yellow peaches are juicier.

When it comes to the best-tasting peaches it depends on what you’re looking for. If you want a sweet hand fruit go with white peaches. If you want a juicier peach, go with the yellow variety.

However, for this recipe, you want to go with yellow peaches. Read the next section on how to pick them.

How to pick peaches for this recipe

When it comes to this air fryer peaches recipe you want to pick yellow peaches. Here are some tips to tell you if a peach is ripe or not. 

The color will also indicate the ripeness of this fruit. Yellow peaches that are ready to eat have no green color with a warm yellow color. 

Look for a heavy peach that is soft. Be gentle and give it a slight squeeze between the area between the stem and the side. Don’t push too hard or you’ll end up with a juiced peach!

If the flesh moves easily it tells you it’s ripe and ready to go. The smell of the peach will tell you if it’s ripe. If you get a whiff of a peachy scent it will tell you that the peach is ready to eat!

Ripened yellow peaches are the best for this recipe.

How to ripen peaches faster

If it’s hard to find peaches at your store, don’t fret! Here is what to do with unripe peaches. 

Place the peaches in a paper bag. Roll it closed and leave it on the counter overnight. Check the softness of the fruit with a little squeeze. 

This can take up to a few days. Once a peach is ripe you can use it in this recipe. 

If you are not going to make the recipe right away you can stick the peaches in the fridge for a day or two. Be careful. Peaches will get dried out if they are in the fridge for too long.

it might take one day or several days for them to fully ripen. When peaches are sweet and juicy, you can store them uncovered in the fridge to stop the ripening process.

But don’t leave them in there for too long, otherwise, the cold will make them dry and mealy. 

Peach nutrition facts

Now you know how to pick peaches, let’s chat a little bit about the nutritional value of peaches. One medium-sized peach is about 150 grams. These are the nutrients in peaches:

  • 63 calories
  • Protein: about 1 gram
  • Carbohydrates: about 15 grams
  • Fat: less than 1 gram
  • Fiber: 1.5 grams
  • Vitamin C: about 4 micrograms (5% of the DV)

The macros in peaches

Like most fruits, there is little fat and protein in peaches. Additionally, the calories in a peach range from 49 to 63 grams depending on the serving size. So in case you’re wondering yes, peaches are a low-calorie food.

When it comes to whether or not are peaches low-carb, the answer comes down to how many carbs are in a peach.

When it comes to how much sugar is in the peach, it depends on the fiber content. The amount of fiber in peaches is two and a quarter grams per 150-gram serving (or one medium peach). 

There is also natural sugar in the flesh of the fruit. This accounts for 12.6 grams of the total carbs.

The total amount of carbs in fresh peaches is about 15 grams. This is a low-carb food. It is also a low glycemic index food.

Many also wonder, “Are peaches keto?” There is conflicting information. Some people say this fruit is too high in carbs to be keto. Others say that peaches can be eaten on the keto diet. 

Perhaps it’s best to use your own discretion when it comes to adding peaches to your keto diet.

A peach also contains other essential nutrients like choline, folate, calcium, iron, selenium, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin A.

In addition to peaches’ vitamins and minerals, this fruit contains the antioxidants beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin.

Now you know all about peach nutrition, you may be wondering are peaches healthy? read the next section to learn some possible peach health benefits.

Potential health benefits of peaches

The peaches’ nutritional value shows there are a number of nutrients in peaches that are necessary for health. These compounds are what give peaches their potential

The benefits of eating peaches include potential improvements in digestion, skin, heart, and immune health. Peaches are also linked with lowering inflammation. 

Are peaches good for you?

As noted above the potential benefit of peaches comes from the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in this fruit. When consumed with a healthy diet they may improve health.

However, peaches are a common allergen and do contain a good amount of sugar. Be sure you don’t overdo it with this fruit. Especially, if you are sensitive to sugar and have blood sugar fluctuations. 

Stick to a smaller serving to prevent any problems. If you have any allergies or food sensitivity reactions try to avoid this food altogether.

How to cook peaches 

When you think of fruit you may only have notions of raw preparations in your head. However, there are several ways on how to cook peaches. They include

  • Baked peaches
  • Boiled peaches
  • Drying peaches
  • Roasted peaches
  • Fried peaches 
  • Deep fried peaches
  • Blanching peaches
  • Grilled peaches
  • Air fryer peaches

However, I feel the best and easiest way to make baked peach recipes for desserts is by using the air fryer.

How does an air fryer work?

Unlike regular fryers, the air fryer works by circulating hot air around the food. It’s like a pressure cooker where the cooking chamber radiates heat near the food making it cooked.

A fan then pushes the hot air around the food and then pushes out the back of the fryer to maintain pressure.

It can get as hot as a regular oven with temperatures reaching as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the model.

When it comes to an air fryer vs. convection oven they are pretty similar. The air fryer is basically a smaller version of the convection oven. The air fryer cooks similarly to a convection oven with air circulating as mentioned above.

That being said when looking at the air fryer vs. oven there are some variations between the air fryer and the regular gas or electric oven. The main difference between an air fryer and oven is the size. Another thing that makes the air fryer special is how much faster food can be cooked.

Regular gas and electric ovens move heat slower than the air fryer. Making food cooking a longer process.

When comparing the air fryer vs. deep fryer the main difference is that a deep fryer will submerge the food in oil. The air fryer has no oil involved unless you are using it as a flavoring agent. This makes it a potentially healthy alternative to deep frying.

Looking at the comparison of the air fryer vs. pan frying the way the food is heated is different. Pan frying is a type of dry heat cooking. It also involves oil to lubricate the pain or food.

What are air fryers good for

Air fryers are a great gadget to have in your house if you need to increase your intake of vegetables or are looking for a healthier way of frying your favorite foods. 

Along with making air frying fruit, this kitchen appliance is a great way to potentially turn all your foods into healthy air fryer recipes such as

  • Healthy air fryer meals
  • Healthy air fryer snacks
  • Other healthy air fryer desserts

Why use an air fryer for this recipe

Though it’s September depending on where you live the summer weather could still be heating up your house. This makes cooking peaches in the oven undesirable. 

Instead of turning on the oven, you can use an air fryer to keep the place cool. It is also a great tool to use if you don’t want to go through all the trouble of turning the grill on.

This recipe gives peaches an air fryer baked goodness taste that is delicious.

Or maybe you don’t have a grill and want to still be able to enjoy this dessert.

If you’re curious there are some slight differences between air frying and grilling peaches. See more on that in the next section.

Air frying vs. grilling peaches

Some recipes will call this an air fryer grilled peaches recipe but this is somewhat of a misnomer. That is because there is a difference when it comes to air frying vs. grilling.

Air-fried peaches differ from grilling because of the way an air fryer operates. The way the air fryer works differs from the grill. The air circulates on the food. Alternatively, food in a grill will only heat the food from below moving to the center. So the overall effect of the peach could be different.

Some also argue that air frying could be healthier than grilling. Others say that grilling peaches can just be a big pain. With traditional grilling, you need to heat up the grill and watch it cooking closely.

With this peaches air fryer recipe, there is no worry of the peaches sticking to the grill grates. You also do not have the risk of losing the peach in the grates of the grill. Overcooking is also less likely so you will not end up with a burnt charred peach.

So it seems there are benefits to cooking peaches in the air fryer over grilling.

Benefits of air frying peaches

There are a few benefits of air frying peaches. They include the 

  • Great flavor
  • Easy to use
  • Reduced cooking time
  • Quick clean up
  • Potentially healthier food

Air frying peaches gives this fruit  great flavor 

To me, the number one benefit of air fryer baked peaches is the great flavor it will produce. Air frying peaches bring out their naturally sweet flavor. The heat in the fryer changes the molecular structure of the natural sugar in the peaches.

This is also what causes the caramelization of the peach. What you get is a juicy, sweet nutty flavor with a somewhat brown color.

It’s like you make a mini air fryer peach pie.

Air fryers are easy to use

Another benefit of using the air fryer is they are easy to use. Most air fryers are pretty easy to use with just a few buttons. 

This recipe is especially easy because it contains just two ingredients and is a great way to test-run your air fryer recipes.

Air frying peaches takes no time at all

The air fryer reduced the time it takes to prepare food when compared to grilling or using the oven. The fast cooking ability of the air fryer is thanks to its circulating heat. This makes it a great option for your dessert recipes.

Have a dessert ready in mere minutes.  This will give you your sweet peaches sooner than if you baked them in the oven or grill.

Air fryers offer an easy clean-up

I also love how air fryers make clean-up quick and easy. The last thing you want to deal with is having a bunch of pots to clean. The air fryer basket can be cleaned in just minutes. It is also often dishwasher safe. 

Air fryers can potentially make the diet healthier

There is also the potential of having healthier food. Depending on what you add to your food air fried foods cut down on the fat and oils found in grilling and traditional frying.

Once you start air frying you won’t want to stop!

Ingredients needed to make air fryer peaches

This air fryer peaches recipe is easy to make with just two ingredients. I do mention the use of coconut cream for a dip but that is optional so there are only two ingredients that you need to use. They include the following:

  • A ripe fresh peach
  • Cinnamon powder
  • Coconut cream for dipping (optional)

For this recipe, I used just one ripe peach. A medium peach contains about 10 to 12 slices. So technically this would be about one serving. If you’re making this for more than one person you can split the one peach between two people or use one peach per person.

Look for ripe but firm peaches. Don’t get ones that are too mushy.

I have found that the naturally occurring sugar, fructose found in peaches is known to carmelize when air-fried. Furthermore, the cinnamon will also bring out the sweetness of the fructose so it makes for a tasty treat.

If you can’t find ripe peaches and are wondering, “How do you ripen peaches?” check out the above section on “How to Ripen Peaches Faster.”

Cannot find any peaches at your grocer? No worries! You can substitute other stone fruits like nectarines, plums, or apricots.

How to make these air fryer peaches

As one of the easiest peaches recipes you can make here’s the lowdown on how to make fried peaches.

1. Pre-heating is often not necessary with most air fryers. The air fryer in this recipe does not need to be preheated. Instead, It is just set to cook at a specific temperature. 

However, models vary, and if you do need to preheat your air fryer start by doing that and set it to preheat at 370 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you don’t need to pre-heat your air fryer move to prepping your peaches. 

2. Rinse off the peaches and pat them dry with a dish towel*. With a sharp knife, cut around the outside of the peach twist, open it in half, remove the pit, and continue to cut the peach into slices.  

3. Next place the peach slices fanned out in the air fryer basket.

One thing to note is the cooking times may vary depending on the type of air fryer. So if you find your peaches are not fully cooked you can put the air fryer on for another 3 minutes until the peaches are caramelized.

6. Let cool for 5 minutes then spoon the peaches into a bowl.

7. Top with coconut cream, your favorite non-dairy ice cream, whipped topping, or enjoy them plain!

Tips to make air fryer peaches great

Here are some tips to make these air fryer peaches taste great. 

Use yellow peaches for juicier results

Yellow peaches are a better bet for a juicy dessert when it comes to this air fryer peaches recipe. White peaches are sweeter but not as juicy. However, if you can’t find yellow peaches white peaches can be substituted.

Use fresh ripe peaches

Yellow fresh, ripe peaches are recommended. Please DO NOT use frozen or canned peaches in this recipe. They will become very mushy in the air fryer.

Make sure the peaches are not too hard or not too soft. If they are too soft they may get mushy and if they are too hard they will not be sweet enough.

Check out the “How to Pick Peaches for this Recipe” section above on how to find good peaches. 

If you cannot find ripe peaches you can buy them a day before you make the recipe. Find out how to ripen them in a paper bag in the “How to Ripen Peaches Faster” section above. 

Check to see if your air fryer needs to be pre-heated

See if your air fryer needs to be preheated before use. Air fryers vary depending on the brand and model. Some need to be preheated while others just need to be started. 

Check to see if your air fryer needs to be preheated before you start prepping your peaches

Seasonings makes air fryer peaches sparkle

Be sure to top the peaches with a sprinkle of cinnamon before cooking in the air fryer.

Cooking times may vary so check for doneness

All air fryer models vary with temperatures. So after you cook the recipe you want to touch the peaches with a fork to see if they are completely done.

If you want more of a cooked peach you can put the basket back in the air fryer and cook for another few minutes until they are to your liking. 

This will also increase the sweetness of the peaches.

Skip the sugar peaches are pretty sweet on their own

When heated the natural sugar in the fruit will enhance the sweetness of the peaches in this recipe. So you may not need any added sugar at all. This is also a good thing if you need to watch your sugar intake.

Keep the peaches in a flat layer in the air fryer basket 

Keep the peaches in a flat layer in the air fryer basket. This will ensure the peaches will cook faster and caramelize.

Do not use parchment paper in the air fryer

Some recipes may recommend using parchment paper. This may block airflow and prevent the peaches from cooking properly. Most air fryer baskets will not stick. If you do get your peaches stuck you can use a spatula* to get them out.

Cook and eat the peaches in the same day if possible

This air fryer peaches recipe is best when cooked and consumed the same day. But it is so easy to prep and cook so it can be made on demand. 

Alternatively, if you are short on time and wind up making it in advance check out the storage and reheating tips above.

What to serve with air fryer peaches

Air fryer peaches with cinnamon are sweet and tasty enough to be enjoyed on their own as a snack, on top of a salad, or as a dessert.

However, if you like to get fancy and make a more decadent dessert here are a few other topping ideas of what to add to your peach dessert recipe:

  • Coconut cream
  • Non-dairy yogurt
  • Non-dairy vanilla ice cream
  • Non-dairy whipped cream
  • A drizzle of honey
  • Chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios, and/or pecans)
  • Gluten-free graham cracker crumbles
  • Gluten-free oats
  • Gluten-free granola
  • Gluten-free pancakes or waffles
  • Pinch of nutmeg

Variations on how to make air fryer peaches

I like to keep my recipes simple which means few ingredients in a shorter amount of time. Some air fryer peaches recipes have variations that involve a few more ingredients. 

Some recipes call for a mix of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter placed on the uncooked peaches. This creates a sweet and savory taste. It also adds a lot of steps to the recipe. 

Wanting to keep the recipe easy and low in sugar I have ditched the butter and used coconut cream to provide a savory flavor. 

Other recipes will also coat the peach flesh with avocado or coconut oil to caramelize the fruit but I found the whole point of the air fryer is that it does not need oil. So this recipe works out just as fine without the use of any oil.

If you cannot find peaches you can easily swap in plums, apples, apricots, or nectarines instead. 

If you want to spice up your peaches you can add red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper for a sweet and spicy flavor.

Don’t have an air Fryer? Make this recipe in the oven

Don’t fret if you haven’t got an air fryer. You can try this recipe in the oven too. Preheat it to 395 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place the peaches on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Then cook for about 5 to 10 minutes until soft and caramelized

Most air fryers do not need to be preheated. This is also the case with the one that I have. However, models vary, and if you do need to preheat your air fryer start by setting the air fryer to 370°F.
Use fresh, yellow ripe peaches that are not too hard or not too soft. When you squeeze the area between the stem and side you should get the flesh to move easily. This will enhance the cooked flavor.
If you cannot find yellow peaches you can also use fresh white peaches, nectarines, apples, plums, or apricots.
DO NOT USE frozen or canned peaches. They will get too mushy in the air fryer. You can also ripen peaches in a paper bag. Just be careful not to let them get too soft.
Cooking times vary by the model of an air fryer. Check with a fork to see if the peaches are done.
Skip the sugar and sweeten the peaches naturally with cinnamon. Cook the peaches in a flat layer to get the best results and good caramelization.
DO NOT use parchment paper. This may block airflow in the air fryer. Cook and eat the air fryer peaches on the same day if possible.
This recipe is best when cooked and consumed on the same day. Store the peaches in a sealable airtight container for up 5 days.
Do not freeze the air fryer peaches as they will get mushy.
