Sometimes, the simplest things are the best. This dessert could not possibly be easier - and its one of the most delicious, sinful tasting things I have ever had the pleasure of eating. The sugar from the peaches caramelizes and combined with the honey makes a sticky glaze all around the fruit - and the heat from the coals makes the peach rich and soft and just amazing tasting.
The nice thing about these is you can just throw them on the grill and let them do their thing as the grill cools from your main course. They could also be a great camping treat.
But the nicest thing about this? If you just skip the ice cream - or replace it with a dollop of thick greek yogurt instead - this is a pretty healthy dessert. It is also a pretty affordable one - one half of a peach is all you really need per serving. This is also easily made vegan but leaving out the ice cream or using a plant-based version.
Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream
2 large ripe but firm Peaches, cut in half and pitted
a few tablespoons Honey or Agave syrup
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
After your main course is finished on the grill place the peach-halves on the grill skin side up. Try to place on medium heat - not in the center or hottest part of the grill.
Cover and allow to cook for a few minutes then turn and cook for a few minutes more (we just let them do their thing while we ate our dinner - jumping up to check on them every few minutes). Once both sides have been grilled, drizzle the skin side with honey and place back on the grill skin side down. Now drizzle some honey on the flesh-side, cover and allow to cook for a few minutes more. When the peaches are soft, juicy and fragrant they are done.
Place in a bowl or plate and top with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream (I used Haagen-Daaz Vanilla Bean but would have used homemade if I had an ice cream maker!)
