Chef Chuck's Grilled Pineapple Dessert

Ananas alla Griglia

A refreshing dessert, grilled pineapple, with your favorite vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of nutella. A perfect summer dish, so sweet with the honey vanilla glaze and the creamy cool gelato.

Grilled Pineapple
1 ripe juicy pineapple
2 tablespoons sweet honey
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons nutella
vanilla ice cream or gelato
fresh mint for garnish

Cut both ends of pineapple and peel, slice pineapple and cut core out. In a small bowl mix honey and vanilla and brush on pineapple slices. Grill on medium heat about 2-3 minutes on each side, brushing both sides with the honey mixture. Place on serving plate add a small scoop of vanilla ice cream, drizzle chocolate and add a sprig of mint.


  1. I love pineapple in any shape or form. I use it in smoothies, for I freeze what will go bad if it is not eaten. We have a salsa that is to die for, come check it out, you will not regret it.

    My daughter and I love it on pizzas, MmmMmmm good I say.
