Okay, this fruit dessert series is really growing on me. This is the fourth fruit dessert recipe list I’m making, from strawberry to banana, then apples and now were on recipes for pineapple desserts.
Pineapples are no different from the other fruit, in that they can be used to make anything. From pizza to cupcakes, it’s really hard to find a dessert that can’t be made with pineapple. Although pineapple is not my best fruit, it is for some people and I’m sure those people would be dying to know all the dessert recipes that can be made with pineapple. There are a lot of pineapple dessert recipes but for this post, I managed to pick out 10. There are many sweet desserts that can be made with pineapple, so fetching 10 out of all was a hard one to pull.
I always encourage people to research that thing they love so much. Taking your favourite snack or food frequently is good (it’s called favourite for a reason), but do you know the health benefits. Pineapples are tasty and all but knowing the benefits and side effects would make you want to do more or less (if it affects your health in any way).
