  1. Hey folks!

    Here's a very simple dessert - pineapple slices grilled with coconut caramel... I love grilling fruits, and this one hit the top of my chart right away. 


    - 1 whole pineapple, peeled and sliced 1/2" thick

    - 1/2 cup brown sugar

    - 1 tsp ground cinnamon

    - 1 can coconut cream (not liquid)

    - 5-6 strawberries, sliced, to garnish

    - 1 lb your favourite vanilla ice cream 

    Pour the coconut cream into one shallow bowl. In another one - mix the sugar and cinnamon. Pre-heat your grill to direct medium heat. 

    Dip each pineapple slice in the coconut cream first, then - coat in the sugar and cinnamon mix, and grill it 5-6 minutes each side, until nicely caramelised.

    Serve hot, topped with vanilla ice cream and strawberries. I also used whatever left in the sugar plate after coating all the pineapple slices as syrup. 

    Enjoy! :)
