Grilled Peaches (The Easy Way)

By Brittni • Updated on 10/06/2023

Two words: grilled peaches!!

Grilled peaches, sliced in half, with ice cream on top.

This grilled peaches recipe is a game changer. And I used to live in Georgia (the peach state), so I feel like I have some authority on the matter. Haha.

For real though, have you ever had grilled peaches before? They are genuinely SO good! Especially when you top them with ice cream and add ice cream and sea salt flakes. I MEAN!

We made a bunch of these yesterday, and will be eating them all day everyday until they’re gone. No complaints here. 

Click through for this quick and easy grilled peaches recipe, that you will not regret trying.

Grilled Peaches Recipe

Ingredients Needed

– Peaches: I always try to get my peaches ahead of time for this one. Because then you can wait until they’re perfectly ripe to grill them. It makes a huge difference in the taste. Of course, peaches are always delicious. But when they’re ripe, there’s nothing better.
– Vanilla ice cream: If you have the time to make your own homemade ice cream from scratch, I have a recipe. A while back I made this delicious waffle ice cream. And if you leave out the waffle pieces and maple syrup from that recipe, you’ll be left with delicious vanilla ice cream. Highly recommend!
– Honey – Any kind of honey is fine. You could even use honeycomb if you wanted to make it extra fancy.
– Brown sugar or raw sugar – Either one will work. I think I prefer brown sugar though.
– Sea salt or sea salt flakes – I used flaked sea salt for this one because it looks pretty and give you a yummy salty sweet combo with the peaches and ice cream.
– Canola oil or olive oil – This is used for brushing the grill grates, so the peaches don’t stick. If you have something else you like to use, go with that.

Ingredients Note

I didn’t include exact measurements for this one because it’s not necessary. You only need a few ingredients and you can use your own discretion on how much you’d like of each thing, if that makes sense.

How to Make Grilled Peaches

1. Prepare grill.

Clean grill grates.

Brush them with canola oil and preheat on a low to medium heat.

2. Prepare peaches.

Cut the peaches in half and remove pits.

3. Sprinkle sugar and grill peaches.

Sprinkle sugar on top of each half of the peach to your liking and place them on the grill for 10 minutes (cut side facing up).

Just a pinch or two is fine, since the peaches are already sweet.

Then, flip the peaches over so the cut side is facing down onto the grill for 15-20 minutes. Or until the desired caramelization is achieved.

If you want the peaches more towards the firm side, you’ll want to cook them for less time.

4. Remove peaches from grill, add ice cream, etc.

Remove from the grill and let the peaches cool for a few minutes. Then scoop vanilla ice cream on top of each peach.

Add a drizzle of honey over top and some sea salt and they’re ready to eat.

This recipe is perfect for summer…somewhere between decadent and healthy. Which sounds like a pretty good place to be, if you ask me.

That little bit of salt tastes so good with the sweetness of the peach and ice cream.

But if you’re looking for more ways to change up the flavor, I have a few ideas…

  • Add a tiny pinch of ginger for a little bit of added kick.
  • Or cinnamon to punch up the sweetness.
  • This would be really good with grilled pineapple too. Which I’m bound to try eventually.

Peaches are already good but now they have become decadent. Thanks

Looks delicious! I’ve tried grilled pineapples with ice cream already, maybe now it’s time for peaches. Fruits and ice cream are such a great combination for summer.

Oh, balsamic vinegar and honey sounds like an awesome combination too, Kelsey. I will definitely have to try that.

Brittni

Ah these look delicious! I always mean to try grilled peaches but always forget when the BBQ is out. I’ve also seen a recipe for grilled peaches with balsamic vinegar and honey which I think would go well with ice cream too.

Kelsey

Thanks Megan. I’m super into grilling all kinds of fruits right now. My assistant, Linda, is the one who got me into it and now I can’t stop. So good (and easy too).

Brittni

These pictures are making my mouth water! I love grilling peaches during the summer!
