Grilled Pineapple with Coconut Ice Cream


                             There are very few things in life that I love more than pineapple
                      and coconut. I never can pass up anything with this flavor combo. It takes
                   me away to a tropical paradise without even leaving my house. I love that. Ha.
                   This dessert couldn't be any simpler and it's sure to impress your guests or just
                   even yourself. Make yourself a Pina Colada and listen to some Jimmy Buffett.

                                               Grilled Pineapple with Coconut Ice Cream
                     
                                     1 pineapple, core removed and cut into chunks
                                     2 limes, juiced
                                     1/3 cup honey
                                     1 teaspoon cinnamon
                                     1 pint pineapple coconut ice cream
                                     toasted coconut
                                     macadamia nuts
                                     maraschino cherries

                          1) In a bowl place pineapple, lime juice, honey and cinnamon. Mix and
                          let sit 30 min.
                          2) Meanwhile heat your grill pan or outdoor grill. Place pineapple in pan
                          and cook until seared.
                          3) Place pineapple in the pineapple shell. Put 2 dollops of ice cream on
                          top and place your toasted coconut, nut and cherries. Serve.
                           Note...you can double of triple this for a crowd.
