Grilled Pineapple with Nutella and Macadamia Nuts #MysteryDish

Sweet Juicy Pineapple lightly grilled then topped with chocolaty hazelnut Nutella spread and garnished with toasted macadamia nuts for a little crunch, and unique and healthy dessert recipe.

Happy Friday ya’ll! Today is not just any friday, it is the last friday of the month. Which means we are headed into March! Craziness!!

Today is also Mystery Dish Day!! Hip Hip Hurray!

This month for Mystery Dish, the host was Christine over at I Dig Pinterest. If you haven’t checked her out yet, you need to head over there now! {well, check out the recipe first then head over there. :)} The ingredients she challenged us with were:

  • Fresh Mushrooms
  • Pork
  • Spinach
  • Cream Cheese
  • Pineapple
  • Butterscotch Chips
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
  • Ritz Crackers
  • Tortillas

My first initial thought when I got these ingredients was to go with my very favorite omelet, a Spinach Mushroom Omelet with Cream Cheese and Tomatoes. While it is seriously amazing, I had made it before so thats no fun and definitely not challenging.

Mystery Dish is all about a challenge! So I decided to stick with the dessert recipes theme I had from last month {Strawberry Orange Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips} and make another healthy dessert!

One word.. Nutella.

Done. Go make it! Now!

No really, Nutella melting over grilled sweet fresh pineapple and topped with toasted macadamia nuts. Absolutely amazing and  count em’ 3 ingredients!

Yup, your welcome!

This dessert comes together in less than 15 minutes and is to die for. My husband is already requesting a repeat order of this and I am more than happy to oblige because it was that good. You really don’t even feel bad eating it either because its fruit for dessert. :) Win!!!

To get started, Cut off the skin of the pineapple trying to save as much pineapple as possible.

    OMG. When I first saw this picture, I immediately fell in love. Grilled fruit (especially pineapple) is my fave and Nutella?! Heck yeah! You are so creative! Loved the ease of the recipe & the flavor combo! Good job Krista!

      haha.. glad I reeled you in with the picture. :) I wasn’t sure if the flavor combos would work but it SOOOOOO does. But then again, I don’t think nutella could ruin anything. :) Thanks for stopping by sweet friend.

      Thanks Sherri. Praying for the snow to go away and come back again next winter for you… you NEED access to that grill. Grilling just makes everything in life better. :)

    Oh my gosh!! NUTELLA!! That’s all I’m screaming right now in lab! This look soooo ridiculously amazing. I love the fresh grilled pineapples and the slathering of nutella and the crunchy toasted macadamia nuts. Great use of the ingredients. This will be a great dessert at a BBQ. Pinned!!

      I thought you would like this Mike, I was thinking of doing it with honey too. {which would totally work for your healthy lifestyle} I’m just a sucker for nutella so I couldn’t resist. :)

    • says

      I didn’t either. I just had it sitting in the pantry and thought, what the heck! Um… totally want to have more of those moments if this is the outcome. Holy yum! Thanks for the photos props girl, the oozing chocolate was my favorite part to shoot and then lick up afterwards. Mmmmmm. :)

  4. says

    Okay, I am all over this. We always buy fresh pineapple and try to figure out creative ways to serve it (especially while we have friends over). I know my fam (and my friends) would really dig this! You really are creative with all of your mystery dishes… really love them… and this!

    • says

      Oh, this will totally wow your guests if you serve this bad boy up! I was ready to just sit alone in a closet with it… no sharing!!! :) Hope you get a chance to make it girl. Thanks for stopping by and the sweet comments.

      Thanks Cindy! Grilled pineapple really is awesome in general but then adding nutella and macadmia nuts.. yeah totally brings it to the next level. :) Thanks so much for invite Cindy, I’ll stop by if I get a chance.

    You’ve managed to put half my fiancé’s favorite things in the same recipe! Man, he will be so excited if I make these for him when he gets back from being out to sea. Other things are expensive in Hawaii, but pineapple and mac nuts are super easy to find.

    • says

      Yeah!!! So glad to hear that Natasha.

      Pineapple and Macadamia nuts are definitely easy to come by in Hawaii, we have been there a couple times down. Maui is my hands down favorite, I would move there in a heart beat… then eat this the rest of my happy days. :)

      Hope your fiance loves it girl!

  6. says

    Of course it’s healthy…it’s got milk in it;) Honestly though, I never would have thought of making a pineapple nutella tower! This looks like a fresh, satisfying dessert!

  7. says

    This looks amazing! I love grilled pineapple but would have never thought to put nutella on it an serve it as a dessert. Pretty darn healthy for a dessert and Nutella is my husband’s absolute favorite, so he would be all over this!

    • says

      Thats what Mystery Dish is all about, doing things you never would have thought of doing before. Super pumped that it turned out too, I may have my new favorite summer dessert! Hope you and the hubs get a chance to try my friend. :)

  8. says
