This recipe is perfect for a picnic or beach party. The sugar in the pineapple caramelizes on the grill so is extra sweet and juicy!

Grilled Pineapple Banana Kabobs with Sweet Lemon Glaze

by Healthy Way To Cook

Ingredients (8 servings)

  • 8 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 4 hours
  • 4 ripe bananas, unpeeled, ends cut off, cut into 2-inch chunks, with 1 lengthwise slice in each peel
  • 1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 cup turbinado (raw) sugar
  • 1/2 lemon zested and juiced


Put the fruit on the skewers, alternating between the banana and pineapple chunks, and set aside.

In a saucepan, put the sugar and place over medium-high heat; cook stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar turns into liquid, about 3 to 4 minutes. Continue stirring and add the lemon zest and juice. Set aside.

Set your grill to medium-high heat.

Brush the skewered banana and pineapple with the glaze and put skewers on grill.

Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, roll and cook 2 to 3 minutes, repeating until fruit is lightly browned on all sides.

Remove from grill and when cooled enough to handle, remove banana peels, then brush again with remaining glaze and serve.
