Grilled Pineapple with Raspberry Puree

This quick-to-prepare dessert is healthy and simply delicious! I like to serve the lightly grilled fresh fruit with vanilla yogurt. To add a little crunch, accompany with Cinnamon Sugar Triangles.

Grilled Pineapple with Raspberry Puree

Ingredients

  • Raspberry puree
  • 1 package (10 oz/280 g) frozen raspberries in light syrup, thawed 280g
  • 1 Tbsp honey 15 mL

Instructions

  • 1. Pour raspberries (with the syrup) and the honey into food processor or blender. Puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a strainer and place over small bowl. Stir to press liquid into bowl. Stir in nutmeg. Discard seeds.
  • 2. To grill pineapple, heat stove top grill pan over high heat. When a drop of water sizzles, lightly brush both sides of the pineapple rings with canola oil and place on the pan. Grill for 2 minutes per side or until warm with light grill markings.
