Grilled Fruit. A healthy Polynesian twist on dessert.

Grilling fruit is a sweet and easy solution for a quick dessert. The high heat from the grill brings out their juiciness and caramelizes the natural sugars in the fruit. Top grilled fruit with toasted coconut flakes, nuts, and seeds. Want something more decadent? Serve with lime zest, vanilla ice cream and crumbled ginger snap cookies.
