Grilled fruit is one of my favorite desserts! It's the all-natural, zero refined carb, guiltless dessert you can enjoy year round! I've found it's like having a fresh, homemade fruit pie without all of the sugar, flour, refined carbs and tasteless crust! Hello, everything I want and nothing more! I like you!
Then when you serve it with my Cinnamon-Walnut Greek Yogurt Sauce, you'll think you're enjoying a Pie a la Mode- but better! Way better! For dessert, you're eating healthy, vitamins, nutrients and protein, which your body needs to rebuild muscles and tissues!!! See, I told you this was getting good!
Here's the last part, you can make it anytime of year, or day for that matter, on your indoor grill pan on your stove top. (Calphalon is my favorite grill pan; I use it for everything.)
So hallelujah to not being limited to outdoor summer grilling!
Grilled Apples, Pears & Plums with Cinnamon-Walnut Yogurt
Makes 4 Servings (about 2 slices of each fruit with 3/4 cup Yogurt)
1 Organic Apple
1 Organic Plum
1 Organic Pear
1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
3 cups 0% or 2% Fage Greek Yogurt
1 tablespoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Xilytol (Found at Whole Foods, Central Market or Health Stores)
3/4 cup Toasted Chopped Walnuts
Squeeze of Fresh Lime Juice
1. Slice each apple, plum and pear into 6 to 8 pieces (picture apple slices at school type of pieces). Very lightly drizzle with olive oil.
2. Put your grill pan over medium heat, spray with non-stick cooking spray. Lay each piece of fruit with one flesh side down on grill pan, cover and grill for about 3 minutes. Flip and grill other side for about another 3 minutes, until grill marks appear and fruit starts to carmelize.
3. In a medium bowl, mix well Greek yogurt, cinnamon, Xylitol, toasted chopped walnuts and lime juice.
4. Serve grilled fruit in a pretty flower-like design on top of the yogurt in a small dessert bowl. Or lay the grilled fruit on a dessert plate and drizzle with the yogurt.
