This grilled dessert is super simple. You’ll want to grab the classics: shortcake and strawberries. Cut these into smaller portions that fit on a skewer. Once you have your kabob ready, slip it into a non-stick kabob basket to prevent them from sticking to the grill. Cook them for about four minutes on medium heat and be sure to turn the basket after two minutes. Let them cool for a second then enjoy with some whip cream.

 Grilled banana s'moreGrilled Banana Boat

As someone who loves bananas and chocolate, this recipe is a dream come true! It’s essentially a giant s’more inside of a banana grilled to perfection. I’m not going to tell you what to put into this bad-boy, because that would ruin the fun. So gather the toppings your heart most desires to put inside the banana. In my case those are: chocolate chips, peanut butter and marshmallows. Once you decide on your toppings, you’ll make a cut into your banana (don’t peel it) lengthwise. Be sure not to cut all the way through. Now you can put your toppings into the banana and wrap it with foil. The foil shouldn’t hug the banana tightly.  Set your banana on the grill to cook on medium heat for 8 -10 minutes. When it’s done, you’ll want to let it cool before you dig in.
