Grilled Peach Lassi

NEWS FLASH: It’s hot outside. Summer is definitely here, and it’s time for cool foods and beverages. This grilled peach lassi is a mix of both; filled with sweet peaches and coconut yogurt, it makes a great snack for chillin’ out. Drink it in front of a fan or air conditioning vent for full effect.

Since my last post, I’ve been trying to stay cool, myself; while hanging out as much as possible with Corey, as he only had a week and a half break between tours. I say had, because he’s already gone again! Took him to the airport yesterday for sad goodbyes, and I’ll be seeing him in two months. Yikes. But, hey, that means I have a lot of extra time. ;)

The past few days I’ve been away from home and my kitchen, so there’s been a lot of dining out. Today I was back at it, but didn’t want to do anything to labor intensive. That’s where this lassi experiment comes into play! I sat down, staring at the aging peaches on my counter, wondering what I should do with them. Grilling is always fun in the summer, but I wanted something cold and refreshing. BOOM! Peach Lassi.

And now we’re here, together, and I have this super easy and delicious recipe for you.

  1. Two months?! Ugh. I totally feel for you! I hope lots of exciting and fun things happen between now and then to keep it interesting and moving along quickly.

    This lassi sounds so refreshing, and I love it that you used grilled peaches. With the heat and humidity, I have been so in the mood for fresh juices and smoothies. This sounds perfect!

      I think I’m going to start on some of the bigger projects that I have planned, to keep me occupied! Plus, I can only imagine how hot it is, out by you. Stupid Summer. ;)

    Oh my! With grilled Peach, that’s brilliant! I am completely in love with your recipe, I would have never thought of that. At that point I am missing Europe once again and I wished we could grow peaches here. Thanks for sharing such a jewel recipe with us, much appreciated!

      Thank you for the kind words! Hopefully you can mimic the recipe with a fruit close to you. :)

  4. Where do I get the coconut yogurt?

    • Whole Foods, Safeway and Mom’s Organic Grocery have coconut yogurt in the northern VA area. Go to http://sodeliciousdairyfree.com, click on the Store Finder link and enter your zip code to see what stores in your area carry their coconut yogurt.

        Thank you for your helpful answer! You can also find recipes to make your own, at home, online. Or just substitute with another non-dairy yogurt. :)

  5. Looks wonderfully cooling as we’re sweltering in the Chicago area.
