I’ve always loved fresh peaches in the summer. And now I also love grilled peaches! I think I love them so much because growing up, my Grandma always had them for us to eat in the summer. And she always had them perfectly ripened because she would put them in a paper bag for a few days to ripen and remove them just at the perfect time! I miss her and her summertime peaches dearly, so I frequently sit quietly and enjoy one while thinking of all the amazing memories I have with her growing up!
These balsamic and mint grilled peaches are super easy to make and super tasty. They pair perfectly with a savory meal of grilled meat and veggies! Plus its a perfect way to make sure they don’t go to waste!
Just make sure your grill is nice and clean, and if its a little bit older, give it a little spray with some avocado or olive oil to help keep them from sticking. They can be fragile, so you have to handle them with care! On top of being easy to prepare, they also look super pretty presented on a tray drizzled with the balsamic reduction and sprinkled with fresh mint. Your dinner guests will be raving! Store any uneaten peaches to enjoy for a few days!

Balsamic and Mint Grilled Peaches
These grilled peaches are Whole30 compliant and are a great addition to a savory meal of grilled meat and roasted veggies! Plus they take very little time and effort to make!
- 3-4 peaches (you'll cut them in half to grill so I count each half as a serving. So thats how you can decide on how many you'll need. I do 3 peaches, which yields 6 servings)
- 1 Cup balsamic vinegar
- 1.5 Tbsp Date Paste
- Olive oil or avocado oil (to brush on peaches)
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped mint
Start by making your balsamic reduction
put your balsamic vinegar and date paste in a small saucepan. bring to a boil and then lower the temperature to a medium simmer. stir frequently until mixture has reduced and coats the back of a spoon. (Usually 15-20min)
- Preheat grill to medium heat (While balsamic reduction is simmering). Make sure your grill is nice and clean.
- Wash, and cut your peaches in half. Remove pit
- Brush (or spray) cut side of peaches with olive or avocado oil
- If your grill is older, spray it with oil as well to prevent sticking
- Place peaches on grill cut side down. Grill for about 4 minutes and flip
- Allow to cook for another 3-4 minutes
Place peaches cut side up on a tray or plate. Drizzle with balsamic reduction and sprinkle with fresh chopped mint
