Grilled pineapple with dark chocolate is a simple, healthful dessert that isn’t loaded with fat and calories. You can prep the pineapple ahead of time and after everyone has finished dinner throw it on the grill for a satisfying treat. It only takes a minute to melt the dark chocolate and drizzle over the pineapple. Be sure to use a dark chocolate with 70% or higher cacao for the most antioxidants. Enjoy!
