Grilled Bourbon Peaches with Coconut Cream
Hello & Happy Monday!!
While this concept is somewhat antiquated, I waited for the longest time to explore it as grilled fruit can be somewhat unfulfilling when craving something on the sweeter side…
However, I was completely wrong..
When approached with a little creativity, grilled fruit can be a complete home run!
What I love about this grilled peach concept is that its effortless, affordable, colorful, flavorful, can even be made with bourbon for an adult version, has candied pecans, cinnamon coconut cream, and all of the above can be made in bulk to be used for a myriad of other recipes!
Whether summer or fall, vegan Grilled Bourbon Peaches with cinnamon coconut whip and candied pecans is a must try!
Why this recipe rocks:
Can be made without bourbon
Great for entertaining
Great aesthetic appeal
Can be made in bulk
Uses minimal sugar
