Grilled Pineapples with Cashew Drizzle | Reclaiming Yesterday

[I made these Grilled Pineapples with Cashew Drizzle with Thrive Culinary Algae Oil!]

Have you guys heard of algae oil yet? I hadn’t until just recently. But you know I love my healthy fats so I was pretty excited when learned about it. 

And even more excited when I found out it has a super high smoke point—making it perfect for grilling season!

What is Algae Oil? 

Thrive Algae Oil is just what you might have guessed it is: oil made from algae. It’s high in monounsaturated fat which enables it to stay stable at high temperatures.

Since it’s made from algae it is super sustainable, which I love. And the taste is light and neutral so it’s easy to incorporate just about anywhere. 

I found Thrive Algae Oil at my local Earth Fare (aka my second home). Luckily I live within walking distance from my Earth Fare, but you can find the store closest to you here!  

I was excited to try my algae oil out on some grilled pineapple rings to kick grilling season off right! 😎

This recipe is ridiculously simple, but so so good. All there is to it is peeling and slicing a pineapple into rings, brushing with a little algae oil, and letting the grill do its magic!

The hot grill makes the natural sugars in the pineapple start to caramelize and you get those picture perfect grill marks. 

And pineapple rings that are warm, juicy, and just waiting to be topped off with a creamy cashew drizzle!

About that cashew drizzle… 

It’s sort of like a sugar-less caramel sauce. All creamy and seductive, and flavored with just a splash of balsamic vinegar.

A little bit of the algae oil mixed into the sauce helps thin it out and make it perfectly drizzle-able.

Final Touches 

Top those warm pineapple slices with some full fat Greek yogurt or whipped cream. Both are good, but after trying it with each, we decided we prefer the Greek yogurt version. The little tang from the yogurt contrasts the sweet pineapple so well. 

Either way you go, you can’t skip the cashew drizzle. 😋

It really seals the deal and makes this feel like a complete dessert. YUM.
