80--- Grilled Fruit Platter

This is hardly a recipe. Basically, I am just telling you that grilled fruit is a delightful summer dessert! Here are a few fruits that grill wonderfully:

Apricots, halved
Bananas, peeled (obviously)
Peaches, halved
Pineapple, sliced into rings
Pears, sliced into thick slices
Melon- I used honeydew
Mangoes, sliced into thick slices

I am sure that there are some that I am leaving out. Experiment and post a comment if you find others that work well!


Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Spray grill lightly with cooking spray after grate has been cleaned (with a scraper is fine). Lay pieces of fruit on grill and cook for ~3-4 minutes on each side, depending on grill temperature. Flip when grill marks appear. Remove from heat and serve with a side of yogurt dip:

Grilled Fruit Yogurt Dip

1 cup low fat plain yogurt or 2% Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp honey or 1 Tbsp balsamic syrup (reduced balsamic vinegar)

Whisk ingredients together until smooth.

  1. Yum! If you eat pork these are also good as an appetizer with a piece of prosciutto wrapped around and then drizzled with balsamic reduction. My favorites are mango and persimmon (even though it's a winter fruit)!
    I just found your blog and love it!
