Grilled Peaches with Blueberry Syrup are made with simple ingredients and full of flavor. They make the perfect light summer dessert.
Sometimes the best recipes are ones that you just do in the spur of the moment. That’s exactly how these Grilled Peaches with Blueberry Syrup came about. From a recent trip to our local peach orchard I had still had peaches on hands. I sliced several and frozen them for pies and smoothies. Even with doing that we had quite a few left to eat and the last few were starting to become a little too ripe. I decided to grill them and serve them with vanilla ice cream.
But that plan didn’t happen. No ice cream! What?
I did have blueberries that I was going to use for a syrup to top pancakes so – plan B!
Make a delicious blueberry syrup to spoon over the grilled peaches. Perfect!
It’s #StoneFruit Week with my fellow #FestiveFoodies group of bloggers. All this week, we will be sharing delicious recipes using stone fruits. In addition to this recipe, I’ll be sharing one using mangoes and a yummy family recipe using cherries.
Tips for Making Grilled Peaches with Blueberry Syrup:
This recipe couldn’t be simpler to make. If you have a grill, indoor grill, grill pan or a skillet, you can grill peaches. It’s a quick recipe to make and the blueberry syrup is easy to do.
Choose peaches that are ripe so that they will grill up fast and be tender and juicy.
I use melted coconut oil to brush on the cut side of the peaches before grilling them. You can also use vegetable oil.
Grilling the peaches is super easy, preheat your grill and then add the peaches cut side down first.
Once you have nice grill marks, turn them over and let the peaches cook for a couple more minutes till tender.
When making the blueberry syrup, simply add the ingredients for it in a saucepan; mix and bring to a boil. Then simmer for a few minutes until the syrup is thickened. Using the back of a wooden spoon, mash a few of the berries against the side of the pan so they burst open.
Once the syrup and peaches are done, spoon the syrup over the peaches and serve. That’s it. If you have vanilla ice cream, by all means add a scoop to your plate with the peaches and blueberry syrup.
Simple dessert ideas are the best!
