healthy Grilled Summer Fruit and Chiquita Banana Dessert Recipe
Center the foil over a heat-resistant pie plate. In a large bowl, combine banana and stone fruit slices. Taste the stone fruit and adjust brown sugar amount based on the sweetness of the fruit. Mix together the brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Toss the brown sugar mixture with the fruit; pour over the foil. Dot with butter. Sprinkle brandy or rum over the fruit if using. Bring edges of foil together and fold edges together to create a packet. Place on a hot grill and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the fruit is soft and the juices are bubbling. Remove from the grill and place the foil packet back in the pie plate. Carefully open the packet as the dessert will be very hot. Serve in individual bowls or spoon over angel food cake slices. Top with whipped cream if desired.
Serving Suggestions: Spoon over vanilla ice cream, pound cake or biscuits. Also makes a tasty topping for hot cereals.
Beverage Pairings: Nice with coffee or tea.
