The fall fruit is in season, and we couldn’t be happier! The weather is different around the country, but the fall harvest is well underway all over. We love the smooth-skinned peaches called nectarines. A medium nectarine has around 63 calories, 15 grams of carbs and 2.5 grams of fiber. They have a GI of 43, meaning that they won’t spike your blood sugar.
We enjoy eating seasonally because it encourages a varied diet and getting produce at its best! With that in mind, today, we’re sharing four great nectarine recipes that are perfect no matter what your weather is like!
If you’re already into cool weather and nights are cold enough for a warm dessert, this is just the ticket! This recipe is perfect for nectarines! The cobbler topping is made with biscuits instead of strudel. It has a comforting, homey taste we adore! Made with almond and coconut flour, you lose the carbs but none of the flavor. A serving has 168.7 calories, 8.9 grams of carbs and 3.4 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
For days when it’s cool enough to bake, but you don’t want a hot dessert, this cake is yummy and the perfect fit! It’s also lovely to look at! So, if you are having guests, it’s ideal for making early in the day or the night before! Ricotta makes it rich and moist without making it a heavy winter cake. While some of the pictures on the page show it topped with whipped cream, we say leave it off. It’s already moist and sweet, and you’re covering up just how pretty the cake is! A serving has 244 calories, nine grams of carbs and three grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
Do you still have your grill going? If you’re still grilling to keep the heat out of your kitchen, this is your dessert! These delicious nectarines are cooked on the barbecue and are to die for. The big tip is to make sure you are using a clean spot on your grill! We know that when we’re cooking dinner, we tend to add meat and veggies indiscriminately. You want a clean place for these as you don’t want them picking up other flavors, and you should oil the grill surface to be sure they don’t stick! A serving has 149 calories, 10.4 grams of carbs and 1.4 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
If it’s cool enough that you’re willing to bake for a little while, but too hot to have your oven on long enough to bake a cake, this is the recipe for you! You bake the crust of this tart, but the rest is cool ingredients! While the recipe calls for all-purpose flour. We’ve shared many recipes for low-carb pastry, and you could cut the carbs further by using one of those. As it’s written, it’s not bad, but it could be even lower! As it is presented — with regular flour — a serving is 140 calories, 23 grams of carbs and one gram of fiber. Get the recipe.
Regardless of what your weather is like, there is something on this list to suit your needs! They’re all delicious, and you’ll be enjoying nectarines while they’re in seasons in the best way for your local climate!
