Grilled fruit tossed in a delicious Cinnamon Glaze and topped with a dollop of whipped cream for a fresh and simple dessert.
My kitchen is never without a variety of fresh fruit. Even in the dead of winter, I love to enjoy a bowl of berries to satisfy my winter blues. My kiddos could eat fruit day and night. When I buy fresh berries my kids quickly grab them out of the refrigerator to snack on. They never last very long.
Now if I could only get them to do the same with veggies. They actually love salads and broccoli. That’s about it. I’lll take what I can get. I sneak in their daily dose of veggies when I can. Smoothies is a daily favorite in our home, so I am always adding kale, spinach and whatever veggies I have in hand in their smoothies. Sometimes a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do, right?
When it comes to fruit, I love to incorporate them into desserts. I feel like I am indulging on a sinful dessert when it’s loaded with fruit bursting with flavor. Grilled or sautéed fruit over yogurt, vanilla ice cream or with a drizzle of hot fudge is the perfect treat, however I could eat it alone. Tossing the fruit in a cinnamon glaze made simply with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and a pinch of cinnamon before cooking them brings out the flavor even more. It’s pure heaven in ever bite.

Cinnamon Glazed Fruit
- 32 1-in. pieces assorted fresh fruit, (such as bananas, pineapple, strawberries and peaches)

- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves
Add fruit to a medium bowl.
Combine I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Spread and cinnamon in small bowl. Pour half the mixture over fruit and gently toss to coat.
Add fruit to a grill pan and grill, turning occasionally, until fruit softens and grill marks begin to appear, about 5 minutes. Alternatively you can sauté fruit in a large skillet over medium heat.
Stir orange zest into remaining cinnamon mixture. Pour over grilled fruit and sprinkle with chopped mint.
