Fruit can be dessert

Dessert doesn't have to be heavy and rich, it can light and low calorie as well as decadent. 
This is definitely a good example of the idea of a lighter dessert.
This is one of my go-to's actually, because it is quick and easy and tends to amaze people at just how delicious it actually is.  
When you put fruit on a grill, magic happens, heat brings out the sugars in the fruit making it even sweeter than usual, which of course makes it perfect for dessert.  
Paired with a sweetened sour cream and topped with some cookie crumbles, this dessert is good enough for seconds.
You could sub greek yogurt easily for the sour cream.  
Hurry make this delicious dessert before it is no longer grilling season, there is definitely a chill in the air around here.  How about where you are???

Grilled Peaches with Sweetened Sour Cream
4 peaches, halved and pitted
2 T melted unsalted butter (You can definitely use less)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 T light brown sugar
1 cup crushed amaretti cookies

Heat a grill to med-low.  Brush both sides of the peaches with some butter.
Place the peaches on the grill; cover the grill and cook until the peaches are charred and softened, 4-5 min per side.  Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream and sugar.
Spoon the mixture over the peaches and sprinkle with the crushed cookies. 
Serves 4.
