Four Peach Recipes for Summer

While deciding what recipes to share, we often go to what’s in season. Peaches and nectarines are at their best right now. Nectarines are a smooth-skinned peach that is tangier. They tend to be smaller and slightly lower in carbs and calories. Any recipe that uses a peach can use a nectarine. We recommend reaching for nectarines. However, use what you have on hand; both are low in carbs and high in fiber.

They are both delicious and low in carbs. So, we're sharing four wonderful peach recipes ranging from breakfast to dessert to keep you fed and happy this summer!

Tomato and Peach Salad


This is a perfect dish for summer. It’s a savory salad — not a crazy dessert. We love fruit in salads. Fruit brings a natural sweetness to salads without adding sugar to a dressing. Using peaches, tomatoes and red onion, you create a fresh, light salad that doesn’t weigh you down on a hot day. A serving has 75 calories, 10 grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and 3.5 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Grilled Peaches


This is hardly a recipe; it’s instructions. The only ingredients are peaches and butter. But we are going to recommend you use nectarines instead. They are not only lower in carbs: nectarines have firmer flesh. That means they hold up better on a grill. This is the perfect dessert for a barbecue. It’s sweet and easy. As written, a serving has 93 calories, 11 grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and six grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Luscious Keto Peach Milkshake


Fast-food restaurants have fans for a reason. Their food is unhealthy, but some of it is delicious. This recipe is a copycat of one from Chick-fil-a that people love. You can never find the original recipes online, but you can find amazingly accurate reproductions. This one is dairy-free and low in carbs! A serving has 70 calories, 15 grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and one gram of fat. Get the recipe.

Almond Crêpes with Avocado and Nectarines


So far on this list, we have had a side dish, a dessert and a treat, now we have reached a delicious breakfast. The flavor combination might seem a bit odd at first. The recipe comes from the UK, so it’s not one we would immediately think of in America. We wouldn’t think to top crêpes with a fruit salad made with nectarines, avocado and pomegranate seeds. But it’s a pleasant sweet, and sharp flavor mix. The avocado lends a creaminess to the dish, and the healthy fat will help you stay full for hours. A serving has 457 calories, 18 grams of carbs, seven grams of fiber and 34 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Remember, a fresh piece of ripe fruit is a delicious snack or dessert all on its own! These are just some ideas for when you want to take it one step further. We hope that you are enjoying tons of great fruit while it’s in season.
