This sundae also makes a great breakfast parfait--just substitute plain fat-free Greek yogurt for frozen.
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups coarsely chopped fresh pineapple
1/4 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
2 cups vanilla fat-free frozen Greek yogurt
How to Make It
Preheat broiler to high.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add pineapple; toss to coat.
Spread pineapple mixture in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan lined with foil. Broil 5 minutes or until bubbly.
Place nuts in a skillet; cook over medium heat 3 minutes or until lightly browned, shaking pan frequently. Spoon 1/2 cup yogurt into each of 4 dessert bowls. Top each serving with about 1/4 cup pineapple mixture and 1 tablespoon nuts.
I had a hard time getting the sauce to thicken and the pineapple to brown in the broiler. Next time I will move the pan higher, or just use a small omelet pan and sear it on the stovetop.
Tasty. Used soy delicious coconut milk coconut flavored 'ice cream.'
Excellent dessert and very easy to prepare! Followed recipe exactly, definitely want to toast the macadamias, they add a very nice taste and crunch. For a splurge, I substituted Haagen Dazs pineapple coconut ice cream--yum!!
Supereasy, made to directions except added 1/4 tsp vanilla extract to the sugar-spice blend. Serving portion for the pineapple is off, should by 1/2c fruit per person, not 1/4c? Simple to prep and very good.
