Rum Infused, Grilled Pineapple with Coconut Topping.

With or without some homemade coconut ice cream, this one will surely be a huge hit at your next BBQ. Maybe it’s just a casual weekend “lime” with friends and you want to wow them with a simple but outstanding dessert.

You’ll need:

1 ripe pineapple

2-3 tablespoons of dark rum

1 teaspoon of granulated sugar

1/2 cup of whipped topping (try to avoid the canned stuff.. get some whipping cream and make your own – musch more tasty)

1/4 cup of shredded coconut.

Peel pineapple and cut crosswise into 6 slices. Place in a bowl and drizzle the rum and sugar over the slices. Mix around so every piece gets coated (would be nice to let it sit for about 3-5 minutes – covered so the rum does not evaporate). On a medium hot grill, place the slices for about 10 minutes, turning once. Remember to watch closely since the sugars can burn and become overly charred.

Top with the whipped cream and shredded coconut… feel free to add a nice heaping scoop of your favorite ice cream.

    Thanks for yr response re coconut topping. I would also love to try the curry shrimp but can’t have the coconut milk. What can I use as a substitute in this case?

      Unless you are allergic to coconut, guess what? The oil that makes coconut creamy is very healthy and burns fat! Yes, it is one of those special fats that actually burns fat off your body. I put a spoon full of coconut oil in my breakfast power shake every morning. It is one of the few tasty fats in the world that is actually very healthy on multiple levels.

  11. Well spent my rainy morning perusing your entire site, and I am missing a good Conki recipe. Don’t tell me they don’t make that in Jamaica.It’s made with grated sweet potatoes and grated coconut , a bit of hot pepper and sugar, all- spice and ginger , and some ground cloves then its all wrapped in a banana leaf and steamed or boiled till firm and cooked .Some peple add raisins . On St. Kitts as a kid it was also considered a Christmas Fare along with the sorrel and Maubi and ginger bear drinks and lets not forget the dark Christmas Cake.

  12. Oh chris,
    I had some pineapple, I started making the dessert, so I put in the rum essence and sugar and left it to soak, my husband thought I left it for him and ate all, he said it taste good, especially with the rum essence,(I used instead of rum) but my friend gave me two small pineapples so i’m waiting for them to ripe. when I make it again, I will let you know how it came out and if I like it.
