Baked Nectarines, Cherries & Vanilla Cream

Baked Nectarines Cherries & Vanilla Cream

Too good to be true

Oh sometimes you just need  a lovely warm pudding. Try this baked nectarines recipe – you’ll love it I’m sure 

One that’s not loaded with fat and sugar (ok there’s some honey but really not much at all!)!

Sometimes you need that sweet fix don’t you?  

To satisfy that sweet tooth, but you don’t want the gazillion calories that go with it?

If that’s you then this is a must….. It is the simplest of recipes and in essence EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZY it’s super easy,  nutritious too and gluten free!

Baked Nectarines with Cherries & Vanilla Cream are so flipping simple to make and it’s so delicious.

Baked Nectarines with Cherries

You can easily make it for  just 1 or if you have lots of people just use as many nectarines a you like – just increase the amount of fruit- it’s that easy!

Alternative Fruit 

You can easily use peaches too 


There’s a lot said about sugar (i.e sugar is the devil etc) but I believe the consumption of fruit can be really beneficial and it’s necessary for vitamins an fibre.

When you consume fruit, you are not only consuming fructose (in its natural state), but also consuming fiber and lots of vitamins and minerals too.

I also guess it would be good with other fruits, plums, peaches? etc. If you have a go please let me know what you think? I’d love that….

Baked Nectarines with Cherries & Vanilla Cream – it’s like a massive hug in a bowl, so delicious

Go on have a go – guilt free!


The Deets 

If you’re SW then the honey is 1 Syn per teaspoon – so I make that 2 syns  and then I’m afraid you have to count the fruit as it’s baked !!? BOOOOOOO! 

100g Nectarines baked is 2 Syns and cherries say 1/2 

So I make that 3-4 Syns a portion – harsh but delicious
