Fiorentino’s Farm Market highlights some fun, easy & delicious grilled summer desserts made with seasonal ingredients that can be prepared & cooked in less than 15 minutes.
Top 5 Grilled Desserts to Cook this Summer
Grilled Summer Fruit Skewers: A grilled twist on the classic fruit salad. You can use any fresh summer fruit you have on hand, but our favorites are peaches, pineapple, strawberry and other similar hearty fruits. Don’t forget to soak your skewers in water.
Classic S’mores with Strawberry: You don’t even need a fire pit for this easy grilled summer dessert recipe. Simply line a grill pan with graham crackers, top with chocolate, marshmallows and slices of strawberry then bake for 2 minutes.
Swap out the strawberry for other summer fruits like bananas or blueberries!
Grilled Peach Crumble: There is something so decadent about peaches on the grill! The crumble can be made a few days in advance and add a big scoop of ice cream to complete this delicious summer dessert.
Char-Grilled Pears w/Cinnamon Drizzle: Similar to the above Grilled Peach Recipe, swap the peach for a seasonal bosc pear and top with honey, cinnamon and chopped pecans.
Rum-Soaked Grilled Pineapple: Simply marinate pineapple slices in a brown sugar and rum marinate for 15 minutes and throw them onto the grill. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an easy & boozy grilled summer dessert.
