Healthiest Pick: Fruits on the Grill
While our favorite sugar-free sweet treats are a great option to the usual sugary desserts, fruits are, without any doubt, the best choice for a healthy BBQ meal. They are absolutely mouthwatering, and the flavor is more intense than usual! They get juicier, the natural sugar caramelizes, and the woodsy flavor from the grill is irresistible.
When it comes to choosing your fruits, we have great news. You can grill just about any kind of fruits, as long as they are not overripe and, of course, they are firm enough. Pineapples, pears, peaches, melons, bananas, and figs, for example, will taste delicious and hold their shape while grilling. When you are in the mood to grill small fruits like strawberries, we advise you use skewers. This way, they won’t fall into the flames.
If you don’t already have a good set of roasting sticks, we recommend the Carpathen Campfire Roasting Sticks for Marshmallows, Hot Dogs, and anything else you’d like to grill. They are made of high-quality materials, have a hip design, and promise a very kid-friendly experience. Your little ones will love grilling their own goodies!
To make sure your fruits are cooked perfectly, heat the grill to medium-high for about 10 minutes or more. Don’t forget to scrape and oil the grates before you start grilling. We recommend using an oil suitable for high heat and also neutral-tasting. Safflower oil is a great choice! That’s it. All you need to do now is choose the fruits you want to serve at your next BBQ party. Bon Appetit!
