Grilled pineapple a la mode

Grilled pineapple à la mode

Serves 4


  • 1 whole pineapple, peeled and cut into four rounds
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rock salt
  • Ice cubes


  1. For the ice cream combine the sugar, half and half and vanilla in a gallon-size sealable bag. Seal so that there is still some air in the bag.
  2. Place the bag into another gallon-size bag filled with ice and rock salt. Seal the second gallon-size bag with a little air still in it.
  3. Shake the bag for about 5-10 minutes until it forms ice cream. It is best to pour the ice cream into a freezer-safe container and let it freeze a bit longer to solidify well.
  4. For the pineapple, spray a grill with nonstick spray and heat over medium heat until it reaches about 400 degrees F.
  5. Grill the pineapple rounds for 3-5 minutes on each side until grill marks form.
  6. Let it cool slightly before serving with a big scoop of ice cream on top.
