Our Grilled Pineapple with Lime and Mint, as sophisticated as it sounds, is incredibly simple to make. If you’ve never tried grilled pineapple, you’re in for a real treat. Top it with some fresh raspberries, lime zest and mint.

Notice what this dessert is missing: added sugar, white flour and other typical-dessert ingredients. We promise, you won’t miss them a bit.

Ingredients:

4 round slices fresh pineapple (½-inch thick)
20 fresh raspberries
Finely grated zest of 2 limes
16 leaves fresh mint, chopped

Directions:

Heat the grill to medium-high. Grill the pineapple 3 to 5 minutes per side, until grill marks form.
