With summer officially coming to an end in a few weeks, grilling season in the Northeast is starting to wind down. Readers of the blog know that I try to provide healthier takes on every day meals and recipes. I (aka, master griller Ken) did a previous post on Grilled Artichokes, and now… Grilled Fruit!
Ken is in charge of (and loves) grilling. But if it were up to him, our grilled meals would include a lot more cheeseburgers, flank steak, and ribs than I am comfortable with. So, we try to compromise by always grilling some fish and meat, and by including vegetables, and now, fruit. Grilling fruit is a great way to encourage fruit consumption, and the heat brings out more of the natural sugars. Delicious and healthy!
Fruit (we used apples, nectarines, bananas, peaches)
A dab of melted butter to lightly coat the fruit (optional)
Apples take about 4 minutes a side, while the peaches, nectarines, and bananas are about 2.5 minutes a side (medium heat).
Peel your apples! (We did not = mistake).
Grilling is a great way to sneak some more fruit into your diet. And it is super easy too.
Have a great weekend!
