Rum-Spiked Grilled Pineapple with Toasted Coconut

Six ingredients make one delicious dessert in less than 10 minutes.

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 pineapple wedges, 1 teaspoon coconut, and 1/2 cup ice cream)


  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark spiced rum (such as Captain Morgan's)
  • 1 none pineapple, peeled, cored, halved lengthwise, and sliced lengthwise into 12 wedges (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened flaked coconut, toasted
  • 3 cups low-fat vanilla ice cream


1. Combine sugar and rum in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Brush rum mixture evenly over pineapple wedges.

2. Melt butter in a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add pineapple to pan; grill 3 minutes on each side or until grill marks form and pineapple is thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with coconut. Serve with ice cream.
