Grilled fruit skewers are a delicious way to prepare fruit when it's in season. They can be served at a barbecue or when you're looking for a light dessert. Fruits' natural sugars are enhanced when grilled making fruit even sweeter. There are tips for grilling, but the two things to make sure. First, the fruit needs to be firm and not overripe. Second, the grill must be clean. Sprinkled with toasted coconut, serve these fruit skewers warm and watch everyone's eyes light up with delight.

How to Make Toasted Coconut Grilled Fruit Skewers

Step-by-Step

  1. Soak fruit in a bowl of coconut water for about 10 minutes. Coconut water should just cover the fruit (the fruit will float a little). Soak wooden skewers in tap water for about 10 minutes to prevent burning.
  2. Toast coconut in a pan over medium-low heat for 3 to 5 minutes until it’s lightly toasted. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Thread an assortment of fruit on skewers.
  4. Heat the grill pan on medium heat on your stove or set your grill pan on your outdoor grill for more of a smoky flavor. Let it preheat for about 5 minutes. Then spray with coconut cooking spray.
  5. Set the skewers on the grill pan. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes on two sides.
  6. Remove the skewers from the grill and place them onto a serving tray. Sprinkle with toasted coconut. Serve warm.
