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. 😉

  2. 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. 🙂

    • 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. 🙂

    • That’s what I’ve heard! Hopefully it cools down a little bit, soon!

  3. Definitely drooling. I love grilling peaches, roasting them. Whatever! This is like the perfect summer dessert on a steamy night.

  4. I used to love lassis pre vegan! I am definitely going to have to make this. It sounds wonderful. I might try it with mango.

  5. Mine didn’t look as pretty as yours in the picture… but it tasted so delicious! Thank you for this recipe. I would NEVER have thought to grill peaches!

    • Fantastic! I’m so glad to hear that. 😀
