Cooking Notes:  Grilled Pineapple Slices and Ice Cream

This is a simple dessert that is the perfect finish to a meal on the grill.  I wouldn’t fire up a grill just to make these but if you’re already making veggie burgers, halloumi kebabs or soft tacos stuffed with grilled veggies, this is a quick easy to make dessert that is a perfect ending.

Grilled Pineapple and Ice Cream

  • Fresh Pineapple sliced into 1/3 – 1/2 inch thick pieces (we bought a pre-peeled and cored pineapple and cut them into half rings)
  • Vanilla ice cream (or another favorite)
  1. Make sure your grill is still warm enough after making your main meal.  Add a few extra charcoal if not.
  2. Lay out your pineapples on a lightly oiled grill topper over your grill.
  3. Cook until the slices are warmed through and there are grill marks on the bottom.
  4. Flip slices over and grill the other side.
  5. Arrange slices of pineapple with scoops of ice cream.
  6. Enjoy the sunset but go inside if the mosquitos are getting bad.
