1. Plain and Juicy:

The simplicity of plain grilled pineapple allows the natural sweetness of the fruit to shine through. Start by slicing a fresh pineapple into rings and placing them on the grill. As the pineapple grills, the heat caramelises the sugars, resulting in a juicy and irresistible treat. The smokey flavour from the grill adds a delightful depth to the sweetness of the pineapple. Serve it as is or pair it with a dollop of Greek yogurt for a creamy contrast.

2. Cinnamon Infusion:

Add a touch of warmth and spice to your grilled pineapple by sprinkling it with cinnamon. The combination of the smoky caramelised pineapple and the aromatic cinnamon creates a tantalizing flavour experience. Simply dust the pineapple rings with cinnamon before placing them on the grill. The heat of the grill will enhance the cinnamon’s aroma and infuse the fruit with a heavenly taste. Serve it as a standalone dessert or as a topping for vanilla ice cream for a decadent treat.

3. Tropical Skewer Delight:

For a fun and interactive dessert, create tropical skewers with grilled pineapple and marshmallows. Cut the pineapple into chunks and alternate them with marshmallows on skewers. Place the skewers on the grill, rotating them until the pineapple is beautifully caramelised and the marshmallows are toasty and golden brown. The combination of the sweet and tangy pineapple with the gooey and toasted marshmallows creates a delightful contrast that will satisfy both kids and adults.

BBQ Pineapple is the perfect way to end a BBQ feast on a sweet and healthy note. Whether you prefer it plain and juicy, infused with cinnamon, or as part of a tropical skewer creation, grilled pineapple is a crowd-pleasing dessert option that brings a taste of the tropics to your backyard.
