10 delicious grilled fruit recipes

Grilled fruit recipes



Have you thought about dessert to go with your Bbq? Try grilled fruits, they are deeelicious!

Grilling your fruits is a great way to highlight their natural sugars.

Your burgers (or breakfast) can be accompanied with a refined touch of caramelized flavors.

This will be a new discovery for your taste buds as the texture, taste and temperature of your fruits will be different ...

grilled fruits barbecueFor better results, you should choose fresh, firm and ripe fruit.

Also note that some fruits are better suited to cooking than others. Peaches, plums and apricots are good choices as well as sliced ​​apples, pears, oranges or even strawberries.

You can also try bananas and mangos but you have to keep them in their skins.


PRE-PREPARATION* : It is also suggested to soak the fruit in cold water with lemon for half an hour before grilling. Use this juice later to brush your fruit during cooking. Keep them in their skin/peel.

Even if you add little extras to your fruits they will still be a better choice than store bought desserts.

Here are 10 good mixes :

Nutritionist’s comments :

> Don’t overcook or burn your fruits.
> Try adding grilled fruits to your salads
> Try them with greek yogurt and cereals for breakfast
> These recipes should still be considered desserts and not a daily snack because of their content in sugar (honey, brown sugar, maple syrup, chocolate, marshmallows, alcohol etc.)
> Remember : compared to any other store bought dessert like cakes or ice cream cones these are still healthier alternatives.

Bon Appétit  !
