Grilled Fruit - 4 Ways! Watermelon Salad Bites |

This was such a fun segment I did on Ksee24 Sunrise! Summer is basically here which means the BBQs will be in action again. Instead of always bbq-ing meats, why not try out bbq-ing some fruit? 🙂 Yeah I know I probably sound crazy but that is just the Dietitian in me! Grilled fruit really brings out the natural sweetness of the fruit – try having the watermelon salad bites for an appetizer and maybe also try swapping out ice cream with the yummy Grilled Strawberry Banana Pizza or any of these other recipes below!

Grilled Fruit - 4 Ways! |

Grilled Strawberry Banana Dessert Pizza

Grilled Fruit - 4 Ways! Strawberry Banana Dessert Pizza


Store-bought whole grain pizza dough 

8 ounces oz. goat cheese 

¼ cup honey 

1 basket strawberries and 2 bananas sliced

¼ C rum 

2 Tbsp. sugar 

Cooking spray 

Chocolate syrup


Clean grill. Spray the grill liberally with cooking spray. Heat to 500° F.

Combine strawberries and bananas with the rum and sugar. Let rest for 15 minutes.

Combine the goat cheese and honey with a fork. Spread evenly on the pizza dough. Top

with fruit, leaving the juices in the bowl. Place the pizza on the grill. Cook for 9 to 12 minutes,

rotating the pizza every few minutes to make sure it does not stick. Remove from the grill

and drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Grilled Fruit Kebabs

2 tablespoons honey 

Lemon juice (from one lemon) 

½ teaspoon nutmeg 

Cooking spray


Clean grill thoroughly and heat to 400° F.

In a large plastic bag or bowl, make a marinade with the juice of one lemon, 1 to 2 Tbsp. of

honey, depending on how sweet your fruit is, and ½ tsp. of nutmeg. Slice fruit in half and

remove seeds and cores. Do not remove skin. Add to marinade. Coat grill with cooking spray

and then place fruit on the grill. Do not move fruit often. Flip softer fruits (peaches, plums)

after 2 minutes and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer. Harder fruits can tolerate 3 to 4 minutes per

side without falling apart.

Consider topping with sorbet or yogurt or make into kebabs.
