These kebabs use tinned pineapple to keep the potassium content low.


2 x 425g tins pineapple chunks, juice discarded

2 large nectarines

1 tablespoon caster sugar

250g soya vanilla ice cream

Handful of basil leaves


  1. Step 1

    Soak eight wooden skewers in cold water. Drain and discard the juice from the pineapple chunks. Cut the nectarines into wedges.

  2. Step 2

    Thread the fruit onto the skewers, alternating pineapple and nectarine. Sprinkle with sugar.

  3. Step 3

    Cook the skewers on a griddle pan over a medium-high heat or, alternatively, under a grill. It will take about five minutes. While the kebabs are cooking, mix the remaining pineapple and a few chopped basil leaves for a quick salsa.

  4. Step 4

    Serve the fruit kebabs on the pineapple salsa with soya vanilla ice cream and a few basil leaves.
