Sweet juicy fruit hot off the grill paired with warm berry sauce and ice cream is guaranteed to be an irresistible after-dinner treat.


  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1/2 pint blueberries
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp orange liqueur , optional
  • 2 peaches
  • 1 small pineapple , peeled and cored
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 16 small scoops ice cream


  • Lightly oil grill and heat barbecue to medium-high. Wash, then hull strawberries. Pat dry with paper towels. Cut large ones in half but leave smaller ones whole. Place in a large bowl with blueberries. Gently stir in sugar and liqueur. Turn into a 9-inch (23-cm) foil pie plate, then tightly cover with foil. Slice unpeeled peaches in half. Remove and discard pits. Cut pineapple into thick rings. Brush peaches and pineapple rings with honey.
  • Place pie plate, peaches and pineapple on barbecue. Grill with lid closed until berries are warmed through and saucy, and grill marks form on peaches and pineapple, 8 to 10 minutes. Turn peaches and pineapple halfway through but don’t turn berries. Remove from grill to a large cutting board.
  • When cool enough to handle, slice peaches into wedges and pineapple into small chunks. Remove foil from berry pan. Scoop ice cream into 8 bowls or pretty dishes, then top with hot saucy berries and chunks of fruit. Garnish with fresh mint sprigs. Serve immediately.
