Grilled Peaches with Pecan Crunch Ice Cream

It’s creamy, with just a hint of cinnamony sweetness. Plus has a little surprise crunch with toasted brown sugar pecans swirled in. This ice cream scooped onto a grilled peach is literally what summer tastes like.

  • 5 ripe peaches
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 4 frozen ripe bananas
  • 1 can organic coconut cream refrigerated*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup

Crunch crumble

  • ½ c chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon oil


  • Line a 9”x5” bread pan with parchment paper.
  • Combine frozen bananas, coconut cream, vanilla, cinnamon, and honey in a blender or food processor.
  • Cream together, occasionally scrape down the sides and continue to blend until smooth, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan and place in freezer.
  • Over med-low heat, add oil to small saute pan and add chopped pecans. Stir to toast for about 3 minutes.
  • Add brown sugar and turn to low, stirring as brown sugar melts for about 2-3 minutes (watch carefully so you don’t burn it).
  • Once sugar has melted pour out onto a piece of parchment and flatten with a spatula.
  • Place in freezer for 10 minutes, then pull crisp and ice cream out.
  • Break up crisp with a wooden spoon into pieces to create a crumbled mixture.
  • Swirl this into the ice cream and then cover with plastic wrap, allowing the wrap to touch the top of the ice cream.
  • Place back in freezer for 3-6 hours until frozen solid.
  • Peel off plastic wrap and allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes to soften before scooping.
  • Cut peaches in half and remove pit, then brush each cut side with oil.
  • Place cut-side down on grill for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the peaches and cook until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Scoop ice cream and serve over warm peaches.


*Best if coconut cream can has been refrigerated overnight.
