Grilled Fresh Peaches Recipe a Quick N Easy treat with several variations your family will enjoy.

If you find perfectly ripe peaches that have good natural sugar content, nothing more is needed for a healthy dessert or grill side. You may want to create a more decadent dessert by adding a dollop of Homemade French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

Maybe your want to get into some piquant with your sweet. Try a flavored balsamic vinegar. Some of them are amazing with fresh grilled peaches. Out of peaches but have nectarines? Grill em! Exactly the same way. Yum!

Grilled Fresh Peaches with a sprinkle of cinnamon

The first time I grilled a very ripe sweet peach, I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on top and left it at that. Then I added some pure maple syrup…meh. The addition didn’t really add enough flavor for me to deem it worthy at the price of Maple syrup.

And why add the calories and carbs if you don’t need to? Peaches are delicious grilled. They really don’t need anything added if it’s a good peach. Just sayin…Grilled Fresh Peaches Recipe

In case you assume grilled peaches are done on a family size macho gas grill,…they can be. Certainly if you are doing a LOT of grilled peaches they should be. But if you have only a single serving or two in mind, break out the George Foreman or even your stove top grill, and see what you can do.

We actually made the peaches you see on Kaytis’ George Foreman Grill. She drug it over so we could make grilled peaches. I’m not good with our big ole grill. Our grill master was not at home. We can report her George foreman grill worked great! Just clean off all offending sandwich stinkiness OR lay your peaches on a grill mat or in a basket and you are ready to go.

Grilled Fresh Peaches Recipe:

NOTE: The peach itself is important. Green woody peaches are not going to grill sweetly. If you get a less sweet peach or just feel like going decadent, I’ve included some variations for you to try.

Serving size: 1 peach (2 grilled halves) per person

Instructions:

Preheat Grill to 350 degrees (adjust your grill to a medium heat range and then work the temperature up to where the grill marks appear and the peaches get soft) for our George Foreman that was about 400 degrees)
Cut peach in half and remove pit. (may cut in wedges if preferred)

Lay peach halves on grill cut side down for 5 to 8 minutes or until grill marks form and peaches are tender, not mushy.

Optional Variations:

  • Serve with homemade whipping cream slightly sweetened with maple syrup
  • Throw a bit of candied ginger over the top.
  • Add a dollop of frozen yogurt or ice cream
  • Pour 1 Tablespoon honey or Pure Maple syrup over the grilled peaches at serving
  • Sprinkle cinnamon lightly over grilled peach halves
  • Balsamic vinegar either by itself or whisked with a bit of honey
