If you’re looking for a light, but sweet dessert for the summer grilled pineapple is your answer. I originally saw the recipe up on Lauren Kelp’s website (she has the best recipes FYI) and I adapted her recipe. Her post is sponsored by Silk Coconut Milk, mine is not obviously so I used canned coconut milk instead.

Just a warning, the dessert is very sweet. Pineapple on it’s own is sweet, and when you cover it in sugar…well you know what happens. It is absolutely delicious and you can feel a little healthier since it’s fruit and not cake. 

You need a pineapple (I left the outsides on until I ate it, but feel free to prepare it however you would like), a cup of sugar, a couple teaspoons of cinnamon, mint (optional), and a cup of coconut milk. You can also add chopped nuts on top if you like.

Directions

  1. Heat up a grill pan on the stove. 
  2. In the meantime, have two shallow bowls: one with the coconut milk and the other with the sugar and cinnamon mixed.
  3. Take a pineapple slice and place one side into the coconut milk, and then place it on the sugar mixture. Flip and repeat. 
  4. Place on the grill pan until golden brown (about 5 minutes) and flip to grill the other side.
  5. Chop up mint leaves and mix with remaining coconut milk. Drizzle over the grilled pineapple when you’re ready to serve. Top with chopped nuts and additional mint leaves.
