Grilled pineapple sundae recipe

This unique summer dessert will make you dream of a tropical getaway.


  • whole pineapple, cut into half, cored and fruit cut into chunks, save the shells
  • juice from two limes
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 pint of your favorite vanilla or fruit flavored ice cream/frozen yogurt (I like Ben and Jerry's Pina Colada or Cake Batter flavors personally)
  • toasted coconut
  • macadamia nuts, toasted and chopped
  • maraschino cherries
  • whipped cream

Place the pineapple chunks, lime juice, honey, cinnamon and brown sugar in a bowl. Mix to combine and let marinade for at least a half hour. Heat grill for medium heat. When grill is hot, place the pineapple in a pan and sear. Place pineapple shells cut side down and sear as well. When done, split the pineapple chunks between the two shells, top with two scoops of ice cream and top with coconut, macadamia nuts, whipped cream and cherries. Serve immediately.
