Sweet & Juicy Grilled Pineapple Bowls

It’s happening AGAIN… yes I have thrown something on the barbeque and made it our dessert… yup! I said dessert. While you can take this recipe and flip it anyway you want, the end result is juicy, sweet grilled pineapple. No my friends, I didn’t just stop there – that would be too easy. This dessert made all of my other dessert pale in comparison with its sweet and summery flavours. I think what I like best about Sweet & Juicy Grilled Pineapple Bowls is that there isn’t a lot of added sugar – you can control how sweet this will be!

But my oh my, I almost wish I skipped dinner entirely and devoured this baby up first. The smells, the flavours… I couldn’t have asked for a better dessert then this, and even now, as I’m writing this, I’m thinking up new ways to take this to a whole new level… I will never look at my barbeque the same.

The Ingredients:

  • 1 small pineapple (to make this easier, if you can buy one pre-cored and skin removed, you’re definitely in the clear).
  • A little Olive Oil to brush on
  • 1 pint of French Vanilla ice cream
  • Small or Mini Waffle Bowls (you can find these in with the baking items)
  • Chocolate or Caramel Sauce (optional)

The How-To:

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high.
  2. If your pineapple isn’t already prepared, remove the skin & core. Slice into whole rounds (so you get circles)
  3. Drizzle a little olive oil over all of them, and use a brush to coat both sides of the pineapple slices.
  4. When you’re ready to grill remember two things:
    1. Don’t turn them or move them once they are on the grill
    2. Flip once
  5. Add each slice to your grill and shut the lid. Let them cook about 8 minutes, and flip once. Use a spatula as they become a little ‘soft’ once heated through and this prevents them from break and the juice going into your BBQ.
  6. Once you see grill marks on the bottom of your already flipped pineapple I would say you are done… so it should have cooked about another 5 minutes or so.
  7. Remove and reserve to a plate.
  8. Now it’s your call how you want to do this. I like mine brought to room temperature, so I leave the slices on a plate until after I’m done supper. I chop them up into bites-sized pieces.
  9. Take a mini waffle bowl and add two scoops of French vanilla ice cream. Add about ¼ – ½ cup of diced pineapple. Top (if desired) with chocolate or caramel sauce. And there you have it!

This is a great dessert to grill as you’re making dinner, that way dessert is just a quick assemble away and you have something extraordinarily delicious.
