Grilled Caramelized Pineapple Made in The Air Fryer

 Looking for a unique way to caramelize a pineapple. Check out how you can grill a whole pineapple in an air fryer. Start with peeling a whole pineapple and add a sweet glaze. The result is a super sweet pineapple that makes an awesome healthy dessert.

 Have you ever had grilled pineapple? If so you know how delicious it tastes. If you are looking for a sweet healthy dessert that is super easy to make, you need to try cooking a whole pineapple in an air fryer. With this Grilled Caramelized Pineapple recipe, there is no need to slice the pineapple before cooking.

All you need to do to prepare the pineapple for the air fryer is simply cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple. Then slice off the pineapple skin. Make a simply sweet glaze and the pineapple is ready to grill in the air fryer. Once the pineapple is done cooking, it is ready to slice into a sweet dessert.

Try out this Caramelized Pineapple in the Fritaire airfryer

The Fritaire air fryer makes caramelizing pineapple super easy. When you use the rotisserie feature of this eco-friendly air fryer, there is no need to flip over pineapple slices, like one has to do in other brands of air fryers. The rotisserie bracket slowly turns the whole fresh pineapple, so it gets evenly cooked.

This yummy air fryer recipe requires a whole fresh pineapple and a few other ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. The recipe works best in the Fritaire air fryer. No worries if you only have a regular air fryer as I will include instructions on how to make this recipe without the rotisserie feature later in the post.

4 Simple Steps To Make Caramelized Pineapple

1. Prepare the whole pineapple ~ by cutting off the ends of the pineapple and slicing off the skin

2. Place the pineapple in the air fryer ~ using the rotisserie bracket

3. Cook the whole pineapple ~ for 30 minutes

4. Brush on the sweet glaze ~ cook for an additional 15 minutes

Love my new Bamboozle Bowls!

This is a 7-piece bowl set that is perfect for all your recipe prep. The Bamboozle bowls are made of biodegradable bamboo fiber and come in multiple sizes. The bowls range from 4 quarts in size to .25 quarts. The larger bowls are perfect for baking and the smaller bowls are perfect for mixing up glazes. I just love the multiple colors.

What if my air fryer does not have a rotisserie feature?

If your air fryer does not have a rotisserie feature, you can still make this recipe with a few simple changes. After preparing the pineapple, slice it into 1-inch thick slices. You will then toss the pineapple in the sweet glaze. Then place the glaze-coated slices in the air fryer basket, using a disposable air fryer liner for easier cleanup. Cook the pineapples in a single layer.

The pineapple may cook faster using this method, so check the pineapple after 15 minutes. The grilled pineapple is done when caramelized with slightly browned edges.

Storage Tips

If there is any leftover pineapple, store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. I don't recommend freezing the caramelized pineapple as it will change the texture and taste of the fruit.

To reheat coof for 2 minutes in the air fryer at 350 F until warm. You can also reheat these in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time until warm. The pineapple can also be enjoyed cold. 

Serving Suggestions

This grilled caramelized pineapple is simply delicious on its own but it can also be enjoyed in many other ways.

+ Top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

+ Place on a burger

+ Enjoy in oatmeal or yogurt

+ Add to a smoothie

+ Add to a homemade salsa recipe

+ Enjoy with fish
