Grilled Fruit Desserts
It’s officially grilling season. We often associate grilling with meat, poultry and vegetables. Here are some ideas for using your grill to prepare desserts where fruit is the featured ingredient.
Place grilled fruit on top of granola and top with pecans and crème fraiche.
Wrap apricots and plums in foil with gingersnap cookies and grill them directly over hot coals.
Banana boats, while leaving the peel on a banana, slice the banana lengthwise. Carefully spread open the peel and fill cavity with dark chocolate chips and miniature marshmallows. Place banana on grill and remove when marshmallows are starting to melt and turn brown.
Place halved peaches with stone removed on tin foil that has been sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray. Top with handful of blueberries and brown sugar. Fold up tinfoil to make a packet. Place on grill and cook until fruit is tender.
