Broiled pineapple with candied ginger yogurt cream
SmartPoints® value per serving
Pineapple never tasted so good. Warm and slightly caramelized from the heat of the oven, the fruit's flavorful complexity really shines through. Serve this at breakfast, sprinkled with a bit of crunchy granola, enjoy it as a sweet snack, or offer it as a fresh, light dessert to finish a meal. Mint is a classic herb-pairing with fruit, but basil and tarragon would both be delicious options too. Crystallized ginger imparts a ton of fabulous flavor to the creamy yogurt. It’s a wonderful topping for almost any type of broiled or baked fruit. Look for it in the bulk foods section of natural foods stores so you don’t have to buy more then you need.
