10-Minute Recipes for the Grill

How to Grill Fruit
How to Grill Fruit
  • To grill fruit, heat your grill to 350-450 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 15 minutes and clean the grates.
  • Prep your fruit. Slice pineapple 1/4-inch thick, cut peaches and bananas in half, rinse berries.
  • Place pineapple, peaches and bananas directly on the grill. Use a grill basket for small fruits like berries.
  • Grill fruit for about six to eight minutes, turning when golden brown.


Serve grilled fruit with vanilla ice cream or yogurt and a fresh herb garnish, like mint. Try making milkshakes with grilled fruit like bananas. Grilled pineapple makes a sweet addition to a spicy tomato salsa. (Recipe adapted from Weber).
