Fresh Grilled Pineapple Spears

Have you ever had grilled pineapple? If not, give this recipe a try! It makes a wonderful light summer dessert, plus, it’s healthy!

I’m doing weight watchers and fruit is zero points. You just have to account for how much honey you use.

Start with fresh pineapple. I like to cut them into spears.

The Marinade:

  • Juice from one lime
  • 1 T Honey
  • 1 t Cinnamon

Mix these three ingredients together and pour over pineapple spears. Make sure they are coated well.

Grill them up, just a few minutes per side.

You can serve them warm or cold. Warm is my favorite.

Serve them plain or with some whipped cream. Mmmmm, they are amazing!
