- 3 cups watermelon
- 3 cups pineapple
- 2 mangoes (pre-cut is best)
- 2 peaches
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup Spread The Love® ALMOND BUTTER Granola
- Canola oil (about 2 tbsp, just enough to lightly coat the fruit)
- 3 tbsp. fresh chopped mint
- For the glaze
- 1/3 cup Spread The Love® UNSALTED Almond Butter
- ¾ tsp cinnamon
- 1 ½ tbsp honey
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
- ½ tsp salt
Step 1 -Prepare the glaze by stirring together all glaze ingredients in a small bowl until smooth & creamy and set aside.
Step 2 -Preheat your grill to a medium-high heat.
Step 3 -Remove the skin from the watermelon and pineapple and cut four 6-inch strips (about 1 inch thick) from each fruit and set aside on a baking sheet. Chop the rest up and set aside for another use.
Step 4 -If not using pre-cut, remove skin from the mangoes, then cut mangoes & peaches in half, removing the pits. Set aside on the baking sheet.
Step 5 -Cut the ends off the bananas, then cut each in half lengthwise. You won’t need to remove the skin until after grilling.
Step 6 -Lightly coat all sides of your fruit with canola oil, then arrange on the grill with the skins of the bananas & peaches facing up.
Step 7 -Allow the fruit to cook about 2-3 minutes, then rotate them about 45 degrees (same side facing down) and cook for another 2 minutes, or until you see nice char marks form on the bottom. The bananas may cook faster than the rest of the fruits, so keep a close eye on them!
Step 8 -Once your fruits are charred, flip them over and repeat the same steps on the other side until charred.
