Ingredients

Yogurt Whipped Cream:

1/4 cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

1 1/2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

Oat Crunch:

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/4 cup raw slivered almonds

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar

6 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced into ribbons

Peaches:

2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 tablespoons honey

4 firm-ripe peaches,

Directions

  1. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.
  2. For the yogurt whipped cream: Vigorously whisk the yogurt, heavy cream, vanilla bean paste, brown sugar and lemon zest together in a medium bowl until the mixture thickens and can hold its shape. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. For the oat crunch: Melt the butter in a medium ovenproof skillet directly on the grill. Stir in the oats, almonds and salt until coated. Stirring occasionally, cook the oats and almonds until just beginning to turn golden, about 5 minutes. Add the honey and brown sugar to the pan and stir until the sugar melts. Continue stirring and tossing for another 2 minutes until everything is well coated. Transfer the oat mixture to a baking sheet to cool, about 5 minutes. Break up the crunch into bite-size pieces. Toss the basil ribbons with the oat crunch until evenly distributed.
  4. For the peaches: Cut each peach in half and remove the pit. Whisk the brown sugar, lemon juice and honey together in a large bowl. Add the peaches and gently toss until evenly coated.
  5. Grill the peaches cut-side down over medium-high until grill marks develop and some of the sugars begin to caramelize, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the peaches and grill until the skin is slightly charred, another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the peaches from the grill.
  6. Divide the grilled peaches evenly among 4 bowls. Dollop a generous amount of the yogurt whipped cream on top and sprinkle with a handful of the oat crunch. Serve immediately.
