Hi! I'm Carie and I blog over at Sweet And Savory Spence about healthy recipes.
I have to thank Jessica for having me on Breaking The Momma Mold. I love what she does and she inspires me each and every week with how she reminds us that moms are human too. We all struggle as moms and for me, my biggest struggle is getting my picky eater Diva to eat more foods, healthy food at that. I know Jessica struggles with this too.
This week I tackled dessert. All kids like dessert. All kids like sugary bad for you desserts. It was a long shot with this recipe but I went for it.
Grilled Nectarines with Honey, Toasted Walnuts & Coconut
It was a winner! Touchdown! Goal! Off the back board into the basket 3 point shot! I could keep going (I blame my husband) but I'll stop.
Lil Diva loved them. The topping gave the element of sweet and crunchy, like the toppings on a bowl of ice cream, but instead it was on a delicious piece of fruit.
All you need is:
- Nectarines, halved (1 per person)
- Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
- Raw Honey
- Coconut Oil
Preheat a grill or grill pan. Brush each half of the nectarine with coconut oil to prevent sticking. Place the nectarine halves, flesh side down on the hot grill/griddle. Let them sit for about 3 minutes until they get nice sear lines across them. Turn over and let them sit for another minute or two.
While your nectarines are grilling, in a small skillet, toast your coconut and walnuts over medium-low heat. They will only take about 5 minutes. You will need about a tablespoon of each per nectarine.
Plate your nectarine halves. Drizzle them lightly with honey allowing a little to pool in the middle of the nectarine center. Sprinkle on the toasted walnuts and coconut.
Thanks again to Jessica for having me. I look forward to reading her posts every week and hope you all will come see me for some more delicious recipes! ;)
