Braces-Friendly Recipe: Grilled Pineapple


Try this incredible dessert out on the grill this week... I promise you won't regret it. Grilled pineapple is delicious by itself, but the addition of gooey caramel sauce, fresh mint, creamy vanilla ice cream, and a hint of lime will positively knock your socks off. This braces-friendly treat is a beautiful and creative way to get your daily servings of fruits in... At least, that's what I am telling myself!


  • 1 whole pineapple, peeled and cored
  • lime juice
  • caramel sauce, or dulce de leche
  • fresh mint leaves
  • ice cream


  1. PREHEAT barbecue to medium.
  2. Cut pineapple into 8 rounds.
  3. Oil grill, then barbecue pineapple until grill marks form, 4 to 5 min per side.

  5. Serve with ice cream, if desired.
