    Can you believe we’re already into summer? I’m trying to soak up every single day. Today I’ve got a delicious and easy pineapple fluff recipe that is the perfect side dish for BBQ’s and also makes a great fruit dip! It is so simple to make and can be whipped up just a few minutes. Plus the tropical flavors are hard to resit! It basically tastes like a pina colada fluff. :)

    I love to incorporate coconut and pineapple flavors into my recipes during the summer. There’s something so sweet and refreshing about them. This pineapple fluff is one of my favorite pineapple recipes, as well as pineapple salsa, grilled fruit kabobs and a chilled pineapple smoothie. Give me ALL the pineapple!

    How to serve pineapple fluff

    You can serve this fluff dessert salad in a bowl with fresh fruit and vanilla wafers. Or to make this treat even more fun, serve it in pineapple boats. Isn’t everything more magical in a pineapple boat? Nothing I love more than fresh pineapple on a summer day.

    To make pineapple boat:

    To make the pineapple boats, slice a pineapple in half. Then go around the edge of the pineapple and slice down the middle. Then you can scoop out the pineapple and set aside. Make sure to scoop any extra pineapple/juice that is left in the boat into the pineapple fluff. The more pineapple flavor the better in my opinion. You just can’t beat the the fresh pineapple flavor.

    For dipping:

    • Fresh fruit like pineapples and grapes
    • Vanilla wafers
    • Pretzels
    • Graham crackers

    For more of a pina colada flavor, I’ll even sometimes add some toasted coconut on top. Tropical goodness!
