Pineapple Bake

Many tasty desserts have fruit in them. Despite this fact, we all know that pie isn’t necessarily a health food that we should be munching on any chance we get. Have you ever heard someone say that they were on the new apple pie diet? I’m going to hazard a guess that hasn’t happened. On the other hand, what happens when the fruit is the dessert? It’s not bad for you then. That’s what happens when you cook pineapple lightly covered in brown sugar and serve with some low fat cool whip. The combination of the sweet, juicy, warm pineapple and the creamy, cold and smooth cool whip is amazing. All you have to do is cut up a large pineapple into chunks, toss it, throw into a ceramic baking dish and cook for 30 to 45 minutes.

If you can’t get your kids to eat fruit then this is a great solution. You’re going to have to beat them back from this stuff with a heavy-duty spoon. Nobody can resist a healthy dessert that tastes like one that’s bad for you. This pineapple bake is composed almost entirely of the main ingredient and that is a piece of fruit! Other pineapple recipes for desserts probably couldn’t make that claim. It’s such an excellent way to end a meal and the other day I substituted it for a bowl of ice cream. Get creative in the kitchen people and have some fun. Now you don’t have to listen to mom’s voice telling you to eat some fruit instead of dessert because our eating both!
