This grilled peach and mascarpone ice cream is the most delicious way to enjoy a warm summer night. With fresh juicy peaches, rich creamy mascarpone, and a hint of honey every bite is perfection.
I enjoy a perfectly grilled peach drizzled with a bit of honey and topped with a plop of creamy mascarpone as a dessert any day. But as the summer heats up, I run to the freezer for a frozen treat. This Grilled Peach and Mascarpone Ice Cream will be your go-to all summer and maybe all year. One of the benefits of making ice cream is that you take some time t make it once, and then you have a small stash for whenever you want a little more.
If you are going to grill some peaches, heat up the grill. Allow the grill to get hot, while you prep your peaches. Cut the peaches in half by cutting around the pit. You can then twist the two halves and the peach will pull apart exposing the pit and allow you to pop the pit right out. Once the grill is hot, place the peach halves on the grill for about two minutes per side. This will allow the peaches to develop some nice grill lines and create a caramelization from the sugars within the peach. Once they are done set them aside on a place. They will ooze a little juice as they rest, be sure to retain that to add to the ice cream, it will add more peach flavor to your Grilled Peach and Mascarpone Ice Cream.
How to Make Grilled Peach and Mascarpone Ice Cream
Add all the other ingredients into a blender while you are allowing the peaches to cool. Blend ingredients until smooth. Then add the peaches and give it a quick pulse, just to break them up a little. With all the ingredients mixed, go ahead and pour the mixture into your ice cream maker. Follow the instructions per your ice cream maker.
Homemade Ice Cream Tips
Once the ice cream is done in the ice cream maker, transfer it to a container to put in the freezer to let it harden a little. Of course, you can start enjoying it immediately if you want to taste it. When you allow it to firm up in the freezer for at least two hours, it is easier to serve it in a nice scoop or transport it to a party to share with friends.
