I’m big on doing dessert on the grill. Grilled fruit paired like these bananas with ice cream has to be one of the most simple yet delectable desserts out there- and so easy to boot!

While doing an event a few months ago with Charbroil, I was exposed to the idea of doing bananas on the grill. This is so simple, yet so good. Pair this with some ice cream or whipped cream- the sky is the limit here, and you have an easy dessert that is a universal crowd pleaser.

Quick and Easy Dessert: Grilled Bananas

  • Author: Robyn


  • One bunch ripe bananas
  • 1 tbsp brown cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


Slice the bananas in half, with the skin on. Cut with the curve of the banana so they will lay flat on the grill. Grill on both sides, with the skin up and then facing down. The skin of the bananas will turn black and you will get nice grill marks on the bananas themselves. Sprinkle the bananas with cinnamon and the sugar and let the sugar melt and caramelize on the grill.

Serve with ice cream or frozen yogurt for a fun, flavorful dessert! No need to use your kitchen!!


Nothing is sacred anymore- we’re putting fruit on the grill!
