When I’ve made my balsamic grilled peaches for friends, a lot of people tell me how delicious they are. Then they tell me how surprised they are that the recipe is so easy.

Plus, the fruit-based dessert works for anyone following a vegan or gluten-free diet.

Ingredients

You’ll need just two ingredients to make these mouthwatering balsamic grilled peaches:

Peaches: I love when fruit is the center of a healthy dessert. Peaches provide satiating and cholesterol-helping fiber, as well as many vitamins and minerals.

Reduced balsamic vinegar: This adds a tangy zest to the recipe. You can reduce balsamic vinegar on the stovetop, or you can buy it bottled. If you opt for the bottled version, you ideally want to choose one without any added sugar.

One of the best things about these peaches? You don’t have to use any brown sugar or vanilla ice cream to sweeten them.

Balsamic grilled peaches are plenty sweet on their own! You can either serve grilled peaches right away or make them the night before.

Recipe FAQ

Can you eat peach skin?

When it comes to cooking up balsamic grilled peaches, you may think that you need to first remove the peach skin. But think again! Not only is peach skin perfectly edible, the outer layer of a peach is where the majority of the fruit’s fiber is stored.

This is a good thing, because fiber is beneficial not only for helping to keep you fuller for longer but also for helping cholesterol levels! So yes, you can and should eat the skin of peaches. There’s no need to peel peaches.

Does grilling peaches make them sweeter?

Yes, it does! When you grill any food that contains sugar––and peaches contain naturally occurring sugar––the process brings out the food’s sweetness.

What fruit goes with balsamic vinegar?

Pretty much any fruit pairs well with balsamic vinegar. This includes balsamic grilled peaches, as well as figs and berries.

How long should you grill peaches for?

You’ll want to cook the peaches until they are softened, about 8-10 minutes.
