Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Scented Yogurt

Grilling ripe peaches adds smoke and the flavor of caramel, while concentrating the sugar in the fruit. A quick, healthy, Summer dessert, prepared just before grilling dinner only needs a small dollop of yogurt to add some elegance. May be served warm or at room temperature.

  • 2 tbs butter, melted
  • 4 ripe peaches, halved and seeded
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Julienned mint for garnish

 

  1. Mix yogurt with honey and vanilla and combine well.  Keep chilled until ready to serve.
  2. Heat grill to medium high heat, oiling grates well to prevent fruit from sticking.
  3. Using a basting brush, baste peaches lightly with melted butter and sprinkle with a light coating of sugar to taste.  The riper the peach, the less sugar needed.
  4. Grill peaches for 2 minutes per side until marked by grill.
  5. Allow to cool slightly and serve garnished with a dollop of cream or yogurt and mint. May be served at room temperature.
