Grilled Pineapple with Maple Rum Sauce
The ultimate summertime dessert! Sweet grilled pineapple is topped with frozen yogurt & a luscious maple rum sauce.
Servings: 8 Servings
- 1 pineapple cut into 8 ½-inch slices (see How to Choose & Cut a Pineapple)
- Olive oil spray
- 4 cups vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt (or alternative) (see Note below)
- 5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon roughly chopped raw pecans
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (can substitute coconut oil)
- ½ teaspoon cornstarch
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons dark rum
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Heat a grill to medium heat. Lightly oil the grill.
Arrange the pineapple slices on a baking sheet and lightly spray both sides with olive oil spray.
Grill the pineapple until grill marks appear and the pineapple is starting to soften, about 2 minutes per side.
Place one pineapple slice on each plate and top each with ½ cup frozen yogurt, 2 teaspoons sauce and 2 teaspoons chopped pecans.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan set over medium heat.
Whisk in the cornstarch until incorporated with the butter. Whisk for 30 seconds.
Slowly add in the maple syrup, rum, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Simmer the mixture, whisking constantly, until it thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.
*Nutritional information and WW points do not include the frozen yogurt, which makes it easier to calculate the nutritional values of the entire dessert if you use an alternative to frozen yogurt. Alternatives could include regular ice cream, soy ice cream, coconut milk-based ice cream and others.
