    Celiac.com 05/04/2019 - Looking for a delicious, nutritious, naturally gluten-free dessert that is ready in minutes? Look no further. These grilled peaches will turn delicious peaches into a more delicious peach delight in just minutes. If your peaches are already nice and sweet, then skip the syrup, or use just a bit. Yes, we've done peach recipes before, but the this trio of grilled peaches, mascarpone cream and fresh mint helps to take this version to a whole new level of tasty. 


    • 2 large ripe fresh peaches, halved and pitted 
    • 2 tablespoons avocado or olive oil 
    • 1½ tablespoons pure maple syrup, divided 
    • 3 tablespoons plain whole-milk Greek yogurt 
    • 2 tablespoons mascarpone cheese, at room temperature 
    • Leaves from 1-2 sprigs of fresh mint
    • 1½ teaspoons vanilla

    Oil the grill grates and heat grill to medium-high (400°F to 450°F). 

    Make sure the grill is good and hot.

    Brush both sides of peach halves with avocado oil. Olive oil works fine, but avocado oil handles heat better, and has a milder flavor.

    Grill peach halves cut side down, uncovered, for about a minute, until grill marks appear. 

    Flip peaches, brush 1 teaspoon of the maple syrup on cut side of each peach half, and grill about 1 more minute until tender.

    In a small mixing bowl, blend together yogurt, vanilla mascarpone, and remaining ½ tablespoon maple syrup.

    Top warm peaches with mascarpone mixture and mint leaves, and serve.

    Hi Lfortson, I assume you are on the gluten-free diet?  So no wheat, rye or barley?  That's good, but there are about 10% of celiacs who react to oats also.  So you might want to get rid of oats for several months and see if things improve. Another somewhat common food issue is dairy.  Some people can't digest lactose (cow milk sugar), and some can't digest casein (cow milk protein).  So it might help to eliminate all dairy for several months also.  Almond milk is a possible substitute
