Grilled fruit salad is a healthy dessert with natural sugars that caramelize on the grill. Eat them right off the grill or add a scoop of ice cream.
Grilled fruit is a healthy alternative to satisfy your sweet tooth. When fruit is grilled, the natural sugar caramelizes, creating a deep flavor reminiscent of a decadent dessert. Always toss or brush your fruit with a little oil before grilling to prevent sticking and add another layer of flavor. To amp-up the natural sweetness, sprinkle the fruits with brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup as well.
TIPS: Grilling fruit is a simple process, but keep in mind that different types of fruits will grill differently. Hard fruits like apples and pineapples, are the easiest to grill because they hold their shape and texture. Softer, more delicate fruits like peaches and mangoes, need a little nurturing while on the grill, or they’ll become mushy (and messy). You can grill them with the skins on and peel once cooked. The fruit will cook quickly, so stick close-by with a close eye!
