Grilled Pineapple Latte

Grilled Pineapple Latte

Have part (or all) of a pineapple leftover in your refrigerator? Why not go island style with your next latte?

Ingredients for Grilled Pineapple Simple Syrup

  • 12 ounces pineapple
  • 1-2 teaspoons butter or olive oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • Almond Milk Latte (see MogoBlog’s March 28, 2017 recipe)


    1. First, cut away the top, bottom, and outer skin of the pineapple.
    2. Cut it into wedges and cut away the center/core.
    3. Heat up your grill pan (you could totally use an outdoor grill if you wanted here) and brush it with a little olive oil. Grill one side of each of the pineapple wedges until you have some nice charred bits.
    4. In a large bowl, whisk the sugar into the water until it is completely dissolved.
    5. Add the grilled pineapple pieces.
    6. Cover and let that soak for 24 hours.
    7. Strain with a fine mesh strainer and store in a sealable jar. It’s better if you don’t leave any pineapple pieces in the syrup once you’re ready to store it. I left a few in for the photo you see above, but then I removed them (and ate them!) before storing. I know, total trick! I just thought it was pretty.
    8. Add one tablespoon of syrup to a homemade almond milk latte served in your favorite mug. You might want to increase this to two tablespoons, but try one first and see what you think.
    9. There are all sorts of ways to make a latte at home. Maybe you have an espresso maker, or you can use instant powders to make it. There are also lots of different kinds of milk frothers available to give you that cloudy top, or you can whisk hot milk by hand.
    10. I also have added this syrup to club soda and it was AWESOME. It’s sweet but also has a little complexity to it with that slightly charred flavor. This would also be really fun to add to a cocktail, although I haven’t done that yet. Maybe tonight.
