Air Fryer Pineapple tastes just like grilled pineapple and is so much easier! No grill required. Juicy pineapple is air fried in a cinnamon brown sugar and butter glaze.

Air fryer recipes make things easy by allowing you to make your favorite recipes in one appliance right in your kitchen.

Fresh pineapple is one of the best summer fruits. You can put it in fruit salad, on a fruit kabob, or even in a fruit dessert.

FAQs

What measurement is one small pineapple equal to?

It’s about 3-4 cups of fresh chunked pineapple.

How do you peel a pineapple?

Peeling a pineapple is quite simple. You will cut off the top and bottom, then run your knife around the outside of the pineapple to remove the skin.

Is there a way to make this with sauce to it?

You can place aluminum foil on the bottom of the air fryer to catch the drippings. Then you can double the butter and sugar to make a sauce.

You don’t need an expensive air fryer to make this recipe. I prefer an air fryer with a large basket. Ninja and Cosori are popular brands.
