Spice up your desserts with these lovely Grilled Cinnamon Oranges. Oranges are fantastic nutritionally as they contain plenty of vitamin C, vitamin D, folate, potassium and thiamine (vitamin B1). They also help to keep you hydrated and are great for supporting the immune system….all of which are important for health and fertility. Cinnamon is a warming spice which helps to stabilise glucose and triglyceride levels in the blood. It acts as a fantastic antiseptic and a powerful antioxidant which also helps to reduce inflammation in the body.
Grilled Cinnamon Oranges (serves 4)
2 large oranges
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp brown sugar
Preheat the grill, cut the oranges in half and cut the segments slightly loose in the orange halves using a sharp knife. Place into an oven proof dish and sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar over the top of the oranges. Place under the grill for up to 5 minutes (or until there is bubbling on the top!). Serve and enjoy!
