Living in a house with a 5-year-old, most of our desserts are of the kid-friendly variety. “Grown up” desserts are saved for special occasions, when I feel the need to step away from kiddie land and enjoy something a bit more, well, grown up.
Don’t get me wrong! I love a good ol’ chocolate chip cookie sundae, but every now and then a girl needs to pamper her palate. When I found Jessica’s recipe for Grilled Peaches with Honey Ginger Cream Cheese Fluff, I knew this recipe would hit the mark.
Besides, who doesn’t love a dessert that has fluff in it? Fluff is very grown up, right?
This recipe is super simple. You’ll need: peaches, neufchatel cheese, honey, ginger, nutmeg, and Cool Whip.
In a bowl, mix together the neufchatel cheese and honey.
Beat with a mixer until creamy, about 2 minutes.
Add the ginger and nutmeg.
Beat for another 2 minutes, until well combined.
Gently fold in the Cool Whip with a spoon, just until combined. Refrigerate while you grill the peaches.
Cover the grate of your grill with foil. Place the peaches, cut side down, on the grill. Grill for 3-6 minutes, or until soft.
Remove peaches to a platter. Top with the cream cheese fluff, drizzle with honey, and sprinkle with nutmeg.
I absolutely LOVED these grilled peaches. Even my son loved them, so they’re not just for grown ups! The spiced cream cheese topping went so well with the sweet, juicy peaches. A perfect ending to a summer meal. Thank you Jessica for sharing you’re recipe with us! You can visit Jessica’s blog, A Kitchen Addiction, to find more of her yummy recipes.
The cream cheese fluff offers a slight tang to offset the sweetness of the peaches, and the ginger and honey blend beautifully with this delicious treat!
