Air Fryer Peaches Recipe Instructions
- With a sharp knife, halve and pit each peach. Note – If your peach is a cling stone peach, this same recipe will work with sliced peaches.
- Preheat the Air Fryer to 350F. Brush the cut side with coconut oil or butter and place the cut peach halves in the air fryer basket with the cut side up.
- Cook peaches for 10-15 minutes or until they are golden and caramelized on top.
- While your peaches are cooking, mix or whip ricotta with vanilla, almond milk, maple syrup, salt, and a few drops of liquid stevia. Whip until the ricotta becomes fluffy, adding more milk if necessary. Adjust the sweetness level by adding more stevia, if necessary also. Place ricotta mixture in the refrigerator.
- When peaches are caramelized, let them cool down for a few minutes. Then top each half with ¼ of the ricotta mixture and dust with cinnamon on top of each peach half. Top with your favorite granola, if desired. Enjoy immediately, or chill to enjoy later.

How to Store Delicious Air Fryer Peaches
