Grilled Pineapple and Mango with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Cinnamon-Spiked Whipped Cream
Serves 4

1 cored, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick pineapple
2 mangos
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/4 stick melted butter

Vanilla bean ice cream:
1 cup chilled heaving whipping cream
A pinch of cream of tartar sauce
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. confectioners sugar


Prepare barbecue (high heat). Brush pineapple and mangos with butter and sugar mixture (sugar caramelizes in high heat to create a golden-brown hue). Grill fruit turning once, until slightly softened and browned, about 5 minutes.

Whip together last 5 ingredients with whisk until stiff peaks form. Plate fruit on each plate. Top with vanilla bean ice cream and a dollop of the whipped cream.
