Fresh Peaches Poached in Spiced Coconut Milk Topped with Granola

Pin It

I am a big fruit person, but I normally eat them fresh without any cooking involved.  Peaches are especially nice fresh, when they are juicy and have a wonderful aroma. Sometimes though, I like to try something different. This time I decided to poach the peaches, and as I was opening the can of coconut milk I thought about how nice it would be to add some spices to it, like cinnamon and cloves. These spices are normally used during cold month desserts, but they worked very nicely here. The granola on top is optional, but I like the crunch. Fresh whipped cream or ice cream would work well too, specially if you are a fan of cold and hot contrast on a dish.

Peaches Poached in Spiced Coconut Milk Recipe:

serves 4

You will need:


2 fresh peaches, ripe but still firm

1 can of coconut milk

1 cinnamon stick

10 whole cloves

1 -2 tablespoons of sugar (depending on how sweet you want it to be)

Granola (optional)


Peel the peaches, cut them in half and remove pit. Place peaches in a small sauce pan and cover with the coconut milk. Add the spices and sugar. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, without boiling.

Pour each half peach in individual bowls and top it with some of the coconut milk. Top it with granola, if using. Serve immediately.

This looks great. I had wanted to make a peach filling for a cake recently. I hadn't thought about using coconut milk in that process... I think it would have made a perfect filling! (I might still try it next week :))

That sounds lovely, especially on a cool, crisp autumn morning, perhaps with a cup of tea. Thanks for sharing!
