This stunning dessert takes the staple duo of fruit and yogurt to new heights with a few simple flourishes. An array of stone fruit is grilled until lusciously warm and grill marks have formed, then piled onto pools of creamy yogurt, topped with a sweet-tart drizzle of honey and balsamic vinegar, and finished with a sprinkle of fragrant thyme leaves.

Total time: 20 mins

Storage Notes: Leftover fruit can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Tested size: 4 servings; 1/3 cup yogurt, 3/4 cup fruit

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pound firm-ripe, mixed stone fruits, such as peaches, plums, nectarines and apricots (4 medium-small pieces), halved and pitted
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/3 cups (302 grams) whole milk or low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves


In a small bowl, stir together the honey and balsamic vinegar until combined.

Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the cut sides of the fruit with the oil and place it cut side down onto the grill or grill pan. Cook until grill marks form and the fruit softens slightly, 4 to 8 minutes. Transfer the fruit to a cutting board and slice into thick slices.

To serve, spread 1/3 cup (76 grams) of the yogurt onto each serving plate. Arrange the sliced fruit on top, drizzle each with about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the honey-balsamic mixture and sprinkle with the thyme leaves.
