Grilling fruit makes it more decadent by intensifying its flavor, warming and plumping it. Here, a little ice cream and a sprig of mint where the pit once was make these grilled peaches a lovely finish to a summer meal.


Grilled Peaches with Ice Cream



4 ripe but firm peaches
2 teaspoons neutral oil such as avocado or canola 
½ cup light vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
8 small sprigs fresh mint



Preheat a grill or nonstick grill pan over medium heat.

Cut each peach in half and remove the pits. Brush the cut side of each peach half with oil.

Place the peaches cut side down on the grill or grill pan and cook until the peaches soften slightly and grill marks are formed, 2 to 3 minutes.

Place a tablespoon-size scoop of ice cream in the center of each peach half. Garnish with mint and serve.
