Cooking Tips - Don't skip oiling the grill grates. Fresh fruit has a high natural sugar content so when it's grilling, it has a tendency to stick to the grates if they haven't been properly oiled.
Diet/Allergy Alternatives - Want to make this recipe vegan? Sub the greek yogurt for coconut yogurt and sprinkle on brown sugar instead of honey.
