25 Late Summer Peach + Tomato + Corn + Zucchini Recipes.
Oh my gosh, it’s Friday!!! You guys have to try these cinnamon grilled peaches with mascarpone ice cream. They are so good and just have summer ALL over them!
Only the very best day of the week, yesssss!!
So hey! Let’s chat about this week. I went to my local farm stand a good four out of five days and basically spent wayy too much money on things like local heirloom tomatoes and peaches. BUT honestly, it totally made my flipping week. The excitement that came over me when I saw the pretty tomatoes and peaches was beyond embarrassing, whatever, I am a pumped!
Also, I made big time friends with the owner of the farm stand and he gave me access to all his “secret” produce that he keeps for the high-end restaurants in Breckenridge. Ahhh, yes please!! I’m talking buckets and buckets of the prettiest ever heirloom tomatoes, and peaches galore. It was pretty much my heaven, and I bought it all. Ok, not ALL of it, but a lot of it. He now has my phone number and promised to call when he gets all the best stuff…. so unbelievably pumped!
Clearly I have BIG plans for this month’s recipes and those plans include lots of tomatoes, peaches, berries, corn, plums, zucchini, and just about every other summer produce, but really, a lot of tomatoes, peaches, corn and berries.
Please tell me you guys are as excited as I am?!
SIDE NOTE: can we talk about my cat, Snape for a second? He has finally mellowed out a bit and really likes to snuggle, but you guys, every single day this week I have walked outside my front door only to find dead mice and birds. Today, there were two… and they were both birds! I felt horrible for them. I mean, why the cute little birds? And also, how did he get them? Don’t birds fly? How the heck does he get the birds? UGH.
Anyway, I have been having a really hard time even wanting to touch him cause I mean, his mouth has touched mice. Eeeewwwww. And then he likes to lay on my desk while I work and all I can think about is what he has been up to all day….killing mice. It’s just not good, I feel like I need to give him a bath every single night…but he’d hate that. Man oh man, the cat struggle is REAL!
Anyway, seeing as I have all these beautiful peaches, I clearly needed to put them to very good use. Enter these Cinnamon Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone Ice Cream and Honey Nut Cheerio Granola.
It’s kind of a mouthful, but man, it is SO good.
It’s also really quick and easy. Obviously if you’re making the mascarpone ice cream you’ll need to make it the night before so it can freeze. BUT it literally takes maybe ten minutes total to prepare and then it’s into your freezer. Really, ice cream just does not get easier….or more delicious. If you have yet to try a vanilla mascarpone ice cream, you should know that it’s a game changer. The mascarpone just makes the ice cream incredibly creamy and really highlights the vanilla flavor.
But um, how about that granola? I’ve had this box of Cheerios in my pantry for far too lang and the combo of crunchy Cheerios, to soft grilled peaches with creamy ice cream on top just sounded so flipping good that I had to make it. Bonus, any of the leftover granola can be saved for snacking or sprinkled over a smoothie or yogurt bowl. It’s soo yummy though, I doubt you’ll have any left. For real.
Okok, but maybe we should talk about the main event here. THE PEACHES.
Cinnamon sugar, grilled to a caramelized perfection and eaten warm. Served with the creamiest mascarpone vanilla ice cream…served with that crunchy granola on top. Really, do I need to explain any more. I actually had to cut the title for this post down and remove the Honey Nut Cheerio Granola part ☹️. All because the SEO won’t allow for more than 10 words. Come on, I’m trying to let my readers know about the all kinds of deliciousness going on here! My long as ever, 12 word, original title, Cinnamon Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone Ice Cream and Honey Nut Cheerio Granola, pretty much said it all.
The ice cream melts over the warm and gooey peaches, and the granola provides a nice sweet crunch. You can even add a little extra sweetness with just a tiny drizzle of honey over the ice cream. While it’s definitely not needed, it’s delish.
OH, and if you prefer, you can also roast the peaches in the oven until caramelized, that’s a great option for those cooler September nights.

I too may never buy vanilla ice cream at the store again. Sooooo good!
Happy Monday!! Thanks a lot for giving this recipe a go, I am so glad it was a winner:) Have the best week! xx
Okay, so I have made the mascarpone ice cream like 4 times now and I will never buy ice cream from the store again if I can help it. It is incredibly simple and takes just a few minutes to throw together before sticking it in the freezer for a few hours. The grilled peaches and mascarpone ice cream are a great match, but I have been pairing the ice cream with all kinds of desserts, and also eating out of the tub on its own. I’m eager to try all kinds of ice cream flavors using the heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk as a base.
Hi Josalyn! I am so glad you have been loving this recipe! The ice cream especially haha! Thank you! xTieghan
This combination of flavours was so good!
The peaches and cream and honeyed crunch;

Amazing how you got to go to a local farm! Nothing makes me happier than raking in fresh produce and then making amazing recipes with them! These peaches look phenomenal!
Thanks so much!!
These look gorgeous!!!
And I used to have a cat that loved to show his love with all the dead mice and birds. We put a little bell on his collar and that was the end of the catching. He still loved to hunt, but the birds always got away!
Haha! Thats a good way to stop it! LOL! Thanks so much Debs! ?
Had to laugh about your cat story. My dear adorable kitty Edward has a penchant for killing as well. Mostly lizards; but I love the lizards too! Anyway, I would hold him and declare “You’ve got Death on your Breath!” “My baby is a killer!!” then I would get grossed out and not hold him. I guess I got over it. Cause he jumps up in my lap purring and so cute…..But I have had to save a few birdies. I hate that the most. NOT the birdies!!!!
Haha! Right! I feel bad for the little things, but I guess thats what cats do.. Haha! Thanks Tiffany!
This is a perfect summer dessert! All I can say is yum!!! 🙂
Thanks so much Lili!!
went to a farmer’s market today and bought peaches after seeing this post. I skipped the granola out of laziness/cheapness so I can only speak for the peaches and ice cream. the verdict? wowowowow!! unparalleled worlds of deliciousness!! I don’t have a stand mixer so I whipped the ice cream by hand, btw. totally worth it. thanks for another awesome recipe! looking forward to making it with the granola next time:)
That is so great and sounds awesome!! Thanks Kristen!
