Grilled pineapple with coconut sorbet
SmartPoints® value per serving
So sweet and satisfying. Just make sure the grill is super-clean before cooking the pineapple so that it doesn't pick up any flavors from your main course. Toasting the coconut enhances the flavor and gives it a crisper texture. It's a flavorful topping for a variety of desserts. We suggest microwaving the coconut so you don't have to heat up the kitchen. But you can toast the coconut on a sheet pan in the oven, stirring occasionally, at 300ºF, if desired. Or you can cook it in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned in spots.
