Summer is synonymous with grilling. Steaks, hamburgers, and hotdogs by cooking them on the grill you change not only the flavor of the meat but also the over all presentation of the food. Nothing gathers friends and family better than a summer BBQ.

Southern Grilled Peaches Parfait Recipe

I attended an event at Walmart Headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas where I had the opportunity to hear Chef Ernest Servantes, Chopped Grill Masters Champion, speak his grilling knowledge.

The event was great and I learned a lot but the best part was afterwards when we were able to sample his grilling magic.

Out of all of the delicious dishes that I tried, grilled peaches stood out to me the most.

What do grilled peaches taste like?

Oh the flavor is heavenly as it reminds me so much of a good southern peach cobbler but without any crust. The grill helps bring out the sweetness of the peaches as well as add a bit of smokey flavor.

Grilled peaches are great by themselves. They can also be an ingredient in different recipes like parfaits and desserts.

As soon as I returned home I knew that I wanted to try my hand at grilling peaches, since I live in the peach state afterall.

What do you need to make a Parfait with Grilled Peaches?

The ingredients for a grilled peaches parfait is very few. You only need 3 ingredients! All you will need is your yogurt of choice, some fresh peaches, and sugar.

  • Greek Yogurt: greek yogurt is the best yogurt option for this parfait but if greek yogurt just isn’t your thing then you can use regular plain yogurt or even a peach flavored yogurt instead.
  • Fresh Peaches: you have to use fresh peaches for this recipe the reason being is because you will be grilling them and as they cook they will begin to soften. Canned peaches are already cooked and will not hold up to the heat of a grill.
  • Sugar: plain, white granulated sugar is preferred for this recipe.

Equipment Recommendations to Make Grilled Peaches

You only need one type of grill to make grilled peaches. Choose whichever one works best for you

  • Gas Grill: gas grills are great if you want to cook something relatively quickly. You don’t have to wait as long to start cooking with a gas grill as you do with charcoal. Also, it is easier to control the temperature of a gas grill than with charcoal.
  • Small, Portable Tabletop Gas Grill: tabletop gas grills are a great budget option to get the benefits of a gas grill at a more budget friendly price. The added bonus is that it is completely portable and easy to transport for outdoor adventures.
  • Charcoal Grill: charcoal grills are budget friendly from the start and provide the best flavor when cooking.
  • Small, Portable Tabletop Charcoal Grill: like the portable gas grill, a tabletop charcoal grill is a budget friendly option for charcoal cooking that can easily be transported from place to place. A great option if you like to grill other places than at home.
  • Indoor Grill: indoor grills are great if you just don’t like to cook outside. An indoor grill isn’t going to give your food that added smokey flavor you would get from traditional grilling but you can still get beautiful grill marks on your food.
  • Electric Grill: an electric grill is a great option for someone that doesn’t want to deal with propane tanks or charcoal. Easy to regulate the temperature of whatever you are cooking, you can get beautiful grill marks without the hassle of an open flame.
  • Flat Top Griddle: flat tops have become all the rage over recent years and for good reason they are fun and easy to cook on. Unlike grill grates, there is no worry of your food slipping through the cracks. But like an electric grill, you won’t get any smokey flavor when using a flat top griddle even though it does use propane gas.
  • Tabletop Flat Top Gas Griddle: just like a full size flat top griddle but with the ease of portability. It uses pro
  • Grill Tongs: a good set of grilling tools are essential when using any type of grill. When grilling peaches a set of tongs are a must to help flip and remove the peaches from the grill.
  • Small Serving & Storage Jars: after grilling your peaches you will want to store them in something. These small glass mason jars are perfect for making parfaits for individual servings.

Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Servings 4 people


  • 6 ripe peaches
  • 1 large container of Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • Small serving containers


  • First, preheat your grill. I used a gas grill to cook our peaches but you could also use charcoal. The higher the temperature the faster your peaches will cook and the quicker you will see those beautiful grill marks. Our grill was set between 350-450°F.
  • After preheating your grill, then wash and dry all of your peaches before slicing them in half and removing the pits. Dip each peach half into the sugar, cut side down and place onto the hot grill.
  • Close the lid and allow to cook for about 10-15 mins. Check on your peaches every so often as they can get dark pretty fast. You are looking for beautiful grill marks on the fruit. Once they begin to appear then it's time to flip them to the other side.

  • Once you've flipped your peaches to the other side, close the lid again and allow to cook for an additional 5-10 mins.

  • Remove the peaches from the grill and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Once the peaches have reached room temperature and aren't extremely hot. Dice all of the peach halves and set them aside for layering.

  • In a small glass or plastic container, layer your grilled peaches with your yogurt of choice starting with yogurt as your first layer. Alternate your layers between yogurt and diced grilled peaches until you have filled the container. Top your parfait with additional grilled peaches and serve.

BONUS: Summer Grilling Tips

There were two tips that I learned from the professional grill masters that spoke to us at the Jackson House in Bentonville, Arkansas. One was that you can use a sliced onion to prepare your grill for grilling. Just slice a raw onion in half and rub it on your grill grates before grilling to add additional flavor and keep sticking to a minimum.

Second, did you know that it is better NOT to soak your wood chips? For years, all I’ve heard is to soak your wood chips before adding them into your smoker box on the grill. So to hear NOT to soak them in water before grilling definitely piqued my interest. Why is it best not to soak them in water? Because when you add the woodchips to the grill, the heat of your grill has to evaporate all of that moisture that you added to the wood before it can begin to burn. By eliminating the water, you are getting rid of evaporation process and getting straight to the smoke. And as we all know smoke equals flavor.
