Pineapple Dessert

I came up with this dessert when I cooked Shrimp Pineapple Fajitas and had so much pineapple that it seemed like too much for the main course. I just saved some of the fried pineapple but you can also prepare them separately.

Pineapple Dessert (paleo, AIP)
Serves 4

A third or half of a pineapple cut in bite sized pieces
Coconut oil
Balsamic vinegar
Mint leaves (I like to use small apple mint leaves)
Maple syrup (optional)

  1. Fry the pineapples in coconut oil in a cast iron pan and when they have got some color, drizzle a little bit of balsamic vinegar on them and toss a minute or two more to caramelize them.
  2. Arrange in serving bowls and if you wish drizzle just a hint of maple syrup on them.
  3. Pour some cold vanilla sauce (recipe below) on the warm pineapples. 
  4. Garnish with some torn fresh mint leaves.

Vanilla sauce

1 frozen banana (peel it before freezing it)
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 tsp ground vanilla bean

Measure all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.
