I must confess, grilled fresh, sweet, ripe fruit is truly one of my favorite summertime desserts! The naturally occurring sugars are enhanced via the grilling process – transforming the fruit into an irresistible treat that pairs beautifully with the creamy, cold addition of some homemade ice cream.
On my recent trip to the beautiful state of Tennessee to visit family, my Mom and I found a gorgeous selection of fresh tropical fruits at a local market and decided to create a grilled dessert kebob with a “kick!” That’s because, we secretly added a dash of cayenne pepper to the grilling glaze to give these tropical fruit skewers a hint of heat that leaves you begging for more – or maybe it’s just me?
P.S. For an incredibly luscious breakfast treat, double the recipe and refrigerate the leftover grilled fruit. Then layer the chilled fruit in individual serving dishes with Greek yogurt and homemade granola for an unforgettable Tropical Fruit Parfait! YUM!
