Grilled Pineapple with Coconut Cream

Grilled_Pineapple_With_Whipped_Coconut_Cream

Enjoy

The healthiest, best-tasting dessert. Quick and easy, only three ingredients. And the flavors mix perfectly!

Start off with a perfect ripe pineapple. Picking a perfect pineapple can be tricky. The leaves on the crown should look green, healthy and fresh. The pineapple should feel plump and firm. You can choose your pineapple based on the ease of pulling out a leaf from the top.

Fresh pineapple is an excellent source of manganese and Vitamin C, so delicious and nutritious on its own! But to turn it into a mouthwatering summer BBQ dessert, try grilling it with and serving it with some whipped coconut cream on the side. Fun for summer parties!
