Let us learn a little about the pineapple which is the star ingredient in the recipe we are going to share with you. You use both pineapple chunks and pineapple juice in this recipe for pineapple dessert. Pineapples are grown commercially primarily in Hawaii, and these are the pineapple you will find in the groceries stores fresh. Dole is the brand of pineapple you may be most familiar with, and their product is superior when it comes to canned pineapple which is usually the pineapple used in crushed pineapple recipes. As a point of interest, pineapples do not grow on trees. Rather, they grow off the ground off of a leafy plant. The pineapple grows off the top of the central stem. Pineapples are not grown from seeds, rather, the crown of the pineapple fruit contains small roots. This crown, when planted, will develop into a mature plant. The plant also has suckers that are side shoots. These suckers can also produce new plants when planted. A pineapple plant can fruit three times in its lifecycle and pineapples that are grown in their optimal environment will set their fruit in as little as 16 months, but it can take 24-28 months to mature. Pineapples make an exceptional juice alive with tropical flavor. They are an excellent source of Vitamin C and manganese. They also contain a good source of copper, vitamin B1,B6, fibre, folate and pantothenic acid. In other words pineapple is very good for you.
Pineapple desserts like this one can be wonderful for using up some pineapple you may have around. Sometimes when you but a whole pineapple or a large can of pineapple, it can be hard to eat it all on its own. But pineapple desserts are the perfect way to eat this fruit as well as in healthy smoothies or in fruit salad bowls. Some smoothie recipes with pineapple that are really good and taste like a dessert all on their own are pineapples mixed with banana and coconut to make kind of a pina colada style of smoothie.
Pineapples are also great with oranges and strawberries as well as with greens like spinach or chard which may sound weird, but it is a great way to implement some nutritional greens into your diet with a sweet taste to them. This recipe only requires a few ingredients for a super tasty treat. So thank you to Jen from the Cincy Shopper for this almost too good to be true duplicate of the Pineapple Whip Dessert from Disney Land. Make sure you make it and try it out soon.*
