Summer just isn’t summer until you fire up the grill. And believe me, summer barbecues are not just about bbq chicken and potato salad. It’s also about watermelon, corn and peaches. This time it’s all about peaches. When selecting peaches, make sure you get the ones that are fragrant and firm, yet will dent when you press your finger into them.
Wash and dry the peaches thoroughly. Once the peaches are off the grill, these beauties need to be treated right.
Creamy mascarpone and sweet wild honey will certainly do the trick.
Since this recipe has just a few ingredients, making sure that they are high quality is key. The peaches of course are the star of the show. So make sure that they are ripe and sweet.
After that, things just easy.
Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone
Grilled peaches are a summer favorite and there's a good reason why. These peaches in this recipe are dressed to impress with simple ingredients like mascarpone and honey that let the flavor of the peaches stand out.
- 4 peaches
- mascarpone cheese
- vegetable oil for brushing
- mint to garnish
- Cut peaches in half and remove pits
- Brush halves with oil
- Grill peaches on medium heat for 3-5 minutes (total) on both sides
- Spoon mascarpone in the center of each peach and drizzle with honey
- Garnish with fresh mint

Thanks for sharing with us at the #HomeMattersParty
Mine too! Although, I have to admit that sometimes I like to go for carb filled, sugary and sweet but it’s not my norm.

What a wonderful, light, nutritious and delicious dessert, Lisa! This is perfect for summer and I love that they are made on the grill. Thank you for sharing with us at the Hearth and Soul hop.
Have you tried grilled peaches before April? I think I’ll have to try grilled watermelon next.

Wow, this looks great. I love to grill fruit and mascarpone has to be my favorite. Can’t wait to try this.
I think I’m going to try it with coconut milk ice cream next. Can’t imagine how that could go wrong.
I’ve just started to get into grilling fruits. Thanks for the ideas!
Come over to my link party and share this with everyone:
Hope to see you there!
Yes! It’s the best.
Hi Lisa, I’m counting down the days until the SC freestone peaches are available! I will have to try this recipe – I’ve never grilled peaches before but they are my absolute favorite fruit! Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Janet
