In the summer, we try to grill as much as we can. I have even seen toast for breakfast being grilled here…
So of course, that means dessert gets thrown on the grill, too! This plum dessert recipe is perfect for a crowd at a BBQ. With minimal prep time and a fast cooking time, this will quickly become one of your favorites.
I do not see much about plums, even when they are in season. Peaches and apricots seem to pop up everywhere. But I have grown fond of plums. Not only do they have an amazing sweet taste, but they are also beautiful! Just look at that purple and dark pink hue. Their color just pops.
Use plums that have a firm texture. Cut them in half around the pit and gently twist to separate. Use a knife if needed to gently and carefully cut the pit out. We seem to only get cling pit stone fruit around here, where the pit does not easily separate from the flesh, so cutting the pit out is very common. If you are lucky, try to find and get the freestone pits where the pit easily comes out.
You could also make this plum dessert with peaches, nectarines, or any stone fruit! Or mix it up with a variety to choose from.
If you are a ginger lover, try adding some chopped pieces of candied ginger on top! The sweetened ginger adds some texture and an extra zing!
- 4 plums
- ½ cup plain yogurt
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- Preheat your grill to medium heat.
- Cut your plums in half and remove the pits. If they do not come out easily, carefully carve around them with a knife.
- Put your plum halves on the grill cut side up for two minutes.
- Flip and cook cut side down approximately 5 minutes until heated through and you have some grill marks.
- While the plums are grilling, make your yogurt. Combine the yogurt, honey, ginger, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Season to taste.
- Remove the plums from the grill. Top each with approximately 1 Tablespoon of the yogurt mixture as desired. Drizzle with honey and serve warm.

Italians are really into using fruit as desserts and plums are at the top of my list. After a filling meal I hate serving a rich dessert. It’s overkill. So, last night we had a steak and potatoes dinner and I wanted something light to finish of the meal. The grilled plum dessert was perfect. Hubby usually doesn’t eat dessert — too much for him. This time he did and he said he’d have dessert more often if it was like the grilled plums.
