Grilled Peaches with Gelato

Happy 4th of July eve! Summer is officially here and for many of us the weeks ahead bring non-stop BBQs. Sometimes BBQ menus can get a little stale, so I switched things up with my dessert menu at a recent family dinner. This recipe is super easy and only uses 3 ingredients. In fact, it’s so simple I’m not even sure I can call it a recipe! My family LOVED this dessert and said it was differently a dish I should make again soon.

4 firm peaches
Vanilla Gelato

Heat a BBQ or stove top grill on low/medium heat. I used a charcoal grill with a low mound of coals. While grill is heating, cut peaches horizontally around the the pit. You should be able to wiggle the top off the pit and scoop out any prickly flesh left in the center.  Use a spoon to scoop the pit out of the other side.

If you are unsure of the grill’s temperature (like I was) place peaches indirect heat. You don’t want them to burn and/or disintegrate. Grill peaches flesh side down for about 20 minutes or until grill marks form.

Drizzle with honey and finish them off with a scoop of vanilla gelato {I used Talenti Vanilla Chai}. Serve immediately to enjoy every bite of the tasty perfection!
