Coconut milk boosts the exotic flavor of pineapple as the toasted coconut adds a cunning crunch. Canned pineapple pales in comparison to a juicy fresh fruit, but can used in a pinch.


  • 1 (20 ounce) can unsweetened pineapple slices)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted


  1. Whisk coconut milk, sugar, and cinnamon in a small shallow baking dish.
  2. Dip pineapple slices in coconut milk and grill on a lightly oiled grill rack over medium-high heat until caramelized, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Carefully flip with a spatula or tongs.
  4. Grill for an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving plate. Sprinkle with toasted coconut and serve with a scoop of reduced-fat frozen yogurt or ice cream or drizzled with half-and-half.
