Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe peaches sliced in half
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Honey to drizzle
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat or a grill pan in the oven. Brush the inside of the cut peaches with oil, then lay them cut side down on the grill and close the lid.
  • Grill for 3-4 minutes until grill marks appear, then flip the peaches and cook for another 3-4 minutes until the peaches are warm all the way through and soft.
  • Remove the peaches from the grill and sprinkle with cinnamon then drizzle with honey. Top each peach half with a scoop of ice cream and serve immediately.

Notes

  • How to Cut a Peach – Run a knife the natural seam from end to end. Then twist the peach to open. Remove the pit from the half that holds it by scooping it out with a spoon or using your fingers to pinch it and pull it out.
  • Oil – Use an oil that has a high smoking point like canola or coconut oil.
  • Cooking Time – This will vary depending on the size of your peaches, ripeness and actual temperature of grill. You’ll know the peach is cooked when you can pierce it easily with a sharp pairing knife.
  • Picking your Peach - You want to find one that is firm, but also ripe and smell like a peach. This means the peach will be sturdy enough to grill and won’t fall apart. To tell if your peach is ripe give it a gently squeeze. You want it to have a little bit of give. The next thing you look for is the color. It should be a deep golden yellow, not pale. The last thing to look for is the texture. A ripe peach with have shriveled skin around the stem.
