Prep Time: 7 hours 47 minutes
Cook Time: 7 hours 47 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 pints Raspberries
  • 1 brick Cream Cheese
  • 1 Whole Pineapple
  • ¼ cup icing sugar
  • 2 T Brown Sugar
  • Fresh Mint for garnish

Instructions

  • Mix one pint of raspberries in a bowl with 1 Tablespoon regular sugar. Let sit 1 hour.
  • Peel and slice the pineapple into thick slices approximately ¾ - 1” thick.
  • Sprinkle the pineapple with brown sugar, using one Tablespoon per side. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Grill the pineapple over a medium-hot grill on both sides until edges are lightly caramelized and grill marks appear. Set in the fridge to cool.
  • Combine icing sugar and cream cheese in a bowl and whip until fluffy.
  • Give the sugared raspberries (with residual juice) a good stir to break them up and whip them into the cream cheese mixture until incorporated.
  • Add second pint of raspberries to cream cheese mixture and fold in. Break up some of the whole berries so the sauce will be a bit chunky. Refrigerate while you complete steps 8 and 9.
  • Take cooled pineapple slices and cut into sections/chunks.
  • Skewer grilled pieces of pineapple, approximately 5-6 pieces per skewer.
  • Serve skewers sprinkled with chopped mint and individual ramekins of raspberry sauce for dipping.
  • *Note: To make a smoother dipping sauce, combine both pints of raspberries with the sugar and let sit the hour. Then smash them to release the juice and strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove the seeds.

  1. The grilled pineapple looks so delicious. I’ve never grilled fruit before but I am going to try this the next time I grill.
