Limeaid With Fruit and Grilled Pineapple

OOOOOOOOOPS!! I forgot this one!! We made this limeaid with fruit and grilled pineapple over the Memorial Day weekend and I think that everyone really enjoyed it. Warm off the grill, this pineapple is so sweet and juicy it really makes a great side dish for any summer meal. To make sure that you get the maximum amount of juiciness throughout your pineapple tip it upside down overnight after you bring it home from the store. This helps all of the juices that have settled in the bottom to redistribute throughout the rest of the fruit. You will definitely notice a big difference! Even if you only have a few hours before slicing, go ahead and tip it upside down anyways. You’ll be amazed at how much juicer it will be. We decided to make a limeaid as well and we were so glad that we did! It was so tasty and it looks pretty too! It was a great addition to our meal and left everyone feeling refreshed. There is nothing I like better than feeling nice and refreshed after a healthy, tasty meal. Try these recipes, I know you’ll love them!

I don’t really do pineapple, but the hubs loves them so I made this recipe up just for him…

Is Pineapple Good For Diabetics?

Fruits such as pineapple can be a healthy a choice for people with diabetes.

Fruits contain vitamins, minerals, and fiber that can be beneficial to your diet.

But, fruits can also contain carbohydrates which can affect blood sugar levels.

So, you should use moderation and watch blood sugar.

How Do You Know If Pineapple Is Ripe?

To tell if a pineapple is ripe, smell the stem-end of the fruit to see if it smells sweet.

Also, if a pineapple gives slightly when squeezed, it is ripe.

Another way to test ripeness is to pull the center leaf out.

If it pulls out fairly easily, the pineapple is ripe.

Are Limes High In Vitamin C?

Limes and lemons are an excellent source of Vitamin C.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Grilled Pineapple

  • 1 pineapple Sliced I leave the cores in for grilling because they are easier to flip and remove from the grill
  • 1 Stick of Butter Melted
  • 1 Cup give or take of Brown Sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons Cinnamon

By Jennifer

  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 cup to 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • Frozen berries of choice

Instructions

For the Pineapple

  • Mix the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. This should be a thick mixture, but not as thick as paste. You should be able to taste the cinnamon which means the measurement is not always exact. I just play with it.
  • Cover each side of the pineapple and let it sit for a few minutes and absorb the mixture.
  • Place the pineapple on the grill top down. (The top still has the most brown sugar mixture still on it by this point which is why you want to sear it on)
  • Drizzle more over the top while it's cooking and flip once the grill marks are visible. Usually around 3 minutes or so.
  • Cook a few more minutes and serve!

For the LimeAid with Frozen Berries

  • Mix it and add the frozen berries like ice and serve!!
