Delude yourself with decadent thoughts as you leisurely dine on this summer feast finale. Grilling fruit with a brown sugar and spice glaze enriches its sweet flavor making it a perfect mate for vanilla ice cream.


  • 2 cups large pineapple chunks
  • 3 peaches, quartered
  • 6 apricots, halves
  • Glaze:
  • ¼ cup firm packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons water
  • 3 cups reduced-fat vanilla ice cream
  • ¾ cup honey toasted wheat germ
  • Wooden, bamboo, or metal skewers


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the glaze.
  2. If using wooden or bamboo skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes to prevent them from flaming on the grill. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  3. Thread alternating fruit pieces onto two skewers at a time to keep fruit from rotating around while you turn them on the grill.
  4. Brush fruit with glaze.
  5. Lightly oil grill with vegetable oil.
  6. Lay skewers on grill and cook, turning and basting every couple of minutes, until fruit is tender and browned, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  7. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream sprinkled with wheat germ.
