Grilled peaches and plums with yogurt and caramel sauce is a healthy way to lighten up dessert this summer.

Lord knows, I sure need to lighten up these days. The beauty of this dessert is that it is healthy but so damn good you’ll never know it.

This grilled stone-fruit recipe comes together is less than 20 minutes. Let me give you a summarized version of how this dessert comes together:

  • Brush the peaches and plums with oil.
  • Grill the peaches and plums until they are about to burst with sweet caramelized juice.
  • Sprinkled with brown sugar and allow it to melt.
  • Remove from grill.
  • Dollop the fruit with tangy Greek yogurt.
  • Drizzle with a homemade caramel sauce.

Paired with port wine or dessert-style wine of your choice, you will think you have died and gone to heaven.

A lot of times when a meal comes off the grill, it seems like the hot grill is practically begging David to put something else on it. Sometimes, he will throw on some chicken for salads to enjoy the next day. Other times he will even kiss some country-style pork ribs with smoky grill flavor to finish off in the oven for dinner. It’s a great way to use up hot coals and they don’t require that much stoking.

Last summer, David and I changed things up a bit. We began to experiment with grilled desserts from the residual heat that radiated from the grill. We grilled peaches and there are always s’ mores. This recipe is another one I came up with using ripe summer fruit.

Let’s grill peaches and plums!

Brush the cut side of the peaches and plums with oil.

Step #3: Grill the peaches and plums.

Grill the peaches and plums with the oiled cut-side down over medium-high heat until grill marks form and the peaches and plums begin to brown; about 3 to 5 minutes.

Flip the peaches and plums. Sprinkle each with some of the brown sugar. Grill for an additional 3 to 5 minutes more, or until the peaches and plums are soft. The fruit should not fall apart or become mushy.

Remove the peaches and plums from the grill.

David and I thoroughly enjoyed this dessert. I didn’t even know I liked plums and David didn’t complain a bit about the yogurt, which he really doesn’t care for. It’s probably because it practically melted over the warm fruit like ice cream and provided a nice tang to offset the sugars in the fruit.

Try this grilled dessert at your next cookout. Everyone will love it!

For best results use Freestone Peaches that have a strong peach aroma and give a little when squeezed by hand.
If you have already been grilling food, you may want to through on a few fresh coals to keep the fire stoked while you enjoy the main coarse. When you are ready to grill the fruit, clean the grate, and start grilling the peaches and plums. 
Grilled peaches and plums can be served paired with a cold glass of dessert wine or port. 
The peaches and plums should not fall apart or become mushy. Your grill time may need to be adjusted depending on the thickness of the stone fruit.
It is normal for the peach and plum skin to become loose and fall away from the flesh. You can pull the skin off before serving if desired.

    Hi Debbie & David. I love how simple and fast this recipe is. I always use the leftover charcoal to prepare my dessert. It’s funny because I was actually making me some S’more the other day. Will definitely give this one a try. And thank you for linking out to a great article about port wine. Very educational. Stay safe, you guys! -Thinh
