Misc Tip Instead of toasting marshmallows, serve up this healthy, low-calorie summer dessert: grilled pineapple.
Looking for a creative and healthy dessert for your next backyard barbecue? Look no further than this recipe for Stunning Grilled Pineapple. Cooking the fruit over high heat brings out its natural sweetness. The process caramelizes the pineapple’s natural sugars, giving it a golden brown color and rich flavor. It’s a great way to get finicky kids (and adults) to add more fruit to their diet. Grill the pineapples plain, or add cinnamon and red pepper for a sweet and spicy kick. Pineapple is a nutrient-rich dessert choice, supplying 80 percent of your daily vitamin C needs. It’s also a great source of manganese, a trace mineral that may help prevent osteoporosis and is mostly found in whole grains, nuts and seeds. When selecting pineapples at the grocery store, look for fruits that seem heavy for their size, with dark green leaves that come out easily with a sharp tug. Avoid pineapples with soft or dark spots and dry-looking leaves.
