Grilled Peaches
Grilled Peaches

Simply grilled and topped with brown sugar and cinnamon, these peaches are the easiest and most delicious summertime snack.

Grilled peaches are the perfect summer dessert when peaches are at their ripest and juiciest. Grilling helps bring out their sweetness, and they’re absolutely irresistible when topped with ice cream and a sprinkling of brown sugar and cinnamon.

This recipe is great for a summer barbecue or when you want a quick and easy sweet treat. It’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser!

The best peaches for grilling

Use ripe but firm peaches for this recipe. The peaches shouldn’t be mushy – they should give a little when you gently squeeze them with a finger.

I prefer yellow peaches over white peaches as they are more tart. They’re not overly sweet, especially with the brown sugar mixture sprinkled on top and the ice cream on the side. Yellow nectarines work too!

Clean and preheat the grill

Clean and oil your cooking grates before you start grilling. Then preheat the grill to medium-high heat, 400°F, before placing the peaches on the grill. Not only will you get those nice, charred grill marks, it also keeps the peaches from sticking to the grill.

3 simple tips

This recipe is quick and easy, but there are still some tips you can follow to get the best results:

  • Brush the peaches liberally with butter to keep them from sticking to the grill.
  • While it may be tempting, don’t flip the peaches to check them before the 2-3 minute mark. Be patient and you’ll be rewarded with beautifully charred peaches.
  • If you live in an apartment or don’t have a grill, you can make this recipe on your stovetop with a hot grill pan.

How I serve grilled peaches

Grilled peaches are best served warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. For some crunch, sprinkle them with chopped nuts or granola.

Leftovers are the best

One reason I love grilled peaches is that even leftovers are delicious and versatile. I recommend slicing them up and serving them up in a sweet, summery salad, simply as a side, or with Greek yogurt and granola for breakfast.

Grilled Peaches

preparation time

total time
16 minutes

8 servings


  • 2 tablespoon light brown sugar, densely packed

  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinammon

  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt

  • 4 ripe yellow peaches or nectarines, halved and seeded

  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

  • 8th shovels Vanilla ice cream for serving


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat at 400°F:

    Clean and oil the cooking grates.

  2. Prepare the brown sugar topping:

    In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Put aside.

  3. Grill Peaches:

    Brush the cut side of the peaches with the melted butter. Place the peaches, cut-side down, on the hot grill and grill until you can clearly see grill marks, 2 to 3 minutes. The grill remains uncovered at all times. Turn and fry cut-side up for 2 minutes.

  4. Arrange and serve:

    To serve, place a grilled peach half on a plate and sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon of the brown sugar mixture on top while the peach is still warm. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Serve and enjoy!

    Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat the peaches, place them in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes or in the microwave for 1 minute. They are also great served cold!
