Grilled Pineapple

Top off a successful barbecue meal with this deliciously simple grilled dessert! Grilling is not just for meat and vegetables, it’s also a great way to prepare fruits. Grilling brings out the sweet juices and caramelizes the sugars for a rich flavor. This recipe is for grilling pineapple slices, but you can also treat apricots, peaches, and plums in a similar fashion. Top off the grilled fruit with vanilla ice cream, or Coconut Bliss frozen dessert!

  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 pint of vanilla ice cream


Peel pineapple, remove eyes, and slice into 3/4″ rounds.Place slices on grill. Brush one side of slice with butter, flip and brush other side also. Grill over medium heat, 3-4 minutes until grill marks form. Turn fruit for perpendicular grill marks and grill another 3-4 minutes. Remove from grill, place grill-marks-side up and allow to cool. Cut core from each slice. Scoop vanilla ice cream on top of each slice. Serve immediately.
