Easy Pineapple Dessert
Attention Friends!!! Did you hear the latest news about Yummy O Yummy??? Well, all those who follow YOY Facebook page might know already! Yes, YOY recipes got featured in Vanitha, one of the most popular magazine for women in India! This is one of the best moments in my life 🙂
I got the opportunity to talk to Ms. Merly Eldo, Vanitha senior editor during my last visit to Kerala. She asked me for the recipes, and told she will come home for the shoot. Then, one fine day, she came to my home at Tiruvalla along with Vanitha photographer Sreekanth Kalarickal to capture the pictures(thanks to Merly Ma’m for helping me style the dishes). The day turned out to be very very hectic, not to mention exhaustive, but thankfully went well. My poor mother had a tough time helping me out 🙂 I had to prepare and plate 10 dishes, and it got completed within a few hours. And now, the result is out !!! Getting YOY recipes on Vanitha feels amazingly awesome:) I am now waiting eagerly for the hard copy.
To celebrate this accomplishment, I have a very easy yet awesome dessert recipe. This recipe was a star at a potluck party held recently. This Pineapple dessert was made by a friend, Divya Santhosh. There were loots of yummy and spicy food that evening. And, this dessert was the perfect ending to all that yummy food. It was light, refreshing and simply yummy. Everyone loved this dessert and asked Divya for the recipe. I got the recipe too and decided to post it here so you all could give it a try 🙂
This recipe calls for only 3 ingredients – condensed milk, cool whip and crushed pineapple. Combine the 3 ingredients and place in the refrigerator for 5 – 6 hrs until set. And you’re done!
Crushed pineapple – 20 oz
Condensed milk – 1/2 tin or to taste
Cool whip – 1 tub (8 oz)
Drain the crushed pineapple. Combine the condensed milk, cool whip and crushed pineapple in a large bowl. Transfer to small dessert bowls or to a large bowl and refrigerate until set. Yummy pineapple dessert is ready to serve..Enjoy!
You can replace cool whip with homemade whipped cream. Beat 1.5 cup cold whipping cream until stiff peaks form, add condensed milk, crushed pineapple and mix well. Refrigerate for 5 – 6 hrs until set.
