How to Make Grilled Peaches

Prepare the peaches: Cut the peaches in half and brush with coconut oil.

Grill: Grease the grill pan with half a tablespoon of coconut oil and heat on high. Place the peaches on the pan and grill for four to five minutes, flip and grill for the same amount of time on the other side.

Make the ice cream: Combine the vanilla extract, frozen bananas, and coconut milk in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Serve with the peaches and sprinkle chopped walnuts on top.

Make-Ahead and Storing Instructions:

To Make-Ahead: Grilled peaches are best made fresh, but the banana ice cream can be made in advance. Just keep it frozen until you need it. Let it stand on the counter for 15 minutes to soften enough to scoop, and place the leftovers back in the freezer for later.

To Store: If you have leftovers, scoop them into a freezer-safe container and freeze them. The peach will, unfortunately, not be hot anymore, but you can still enjoy your now-frozen dessert when you’re ready (It’ll be just as yummy).

Prepping peaches: Make sure to remove the pit inside the peaches before grilling. This ensures even grilling, but more importantly, it’s much easier to remove the pit from raw peach than it is to cut it out of a grilled peach without destroying it.

Caramelization tip: Use a high heat setting on the grill pan for a quick sear. This caramelizes the sugars in the peaches, enhancing their natural sweetness without turning them mushy.

Perfectly creamy ice cream: Make sure to freeze your bananas the day before. This ensures a perfectly creamy texture and allows the ice cream to refreeze much faster. If possible, use very ripe bananas to enhance the sweetness naturally.

Blending tip: To get a perfectly smooth consistency, occasionally stop blending to scrape the sides of the blender before continuing. This way, you’ll be sure no chunks stay unprocessed.

Customization: Experiment with various nut options or additional toppings to cater to personal preferences. For those with nut allergies, try using sunflower seeds instead.

Cleanup tip: Clean the grill pan immediately after using it to prevent sticky residue from permanently staining your pan. This makes cleanup easier for next time. For the best results, use some vinegar and baking soda to help dissolve the sugars and oil on the pan.
