Pineapple sundae


A sweet treat to end your meal is perfect and a sundae topped with fruit is something everyone loves! Dr. Artis Beatty and Dr. Amanda Steele serve up the perfect grilling sundae to help overcome your ‘end of summer blues.’

Pineapple is a rich source of vitamin C, beta carotene, anti-oxidants and minerals like manganese and potassium.
