Easy Pineapple Dessert

I recently discovered a recipe for a Yummy Pineapple Dessert, which turned out to be an absolute delight. It’s a simple yet incredibly refreshing treat, perfect for warm days or whenever you crave something sweet and light. The blend of tangy crushed pineapple, sweet condensed milk, and creamy cool whip created a luscious mixture that was both satisfying and indulgent. The ease of preparation was a bonus, making it an ideal choice for quick family desserts or impromptu gatherings. I chose to serve it in individual dessert bowls, which added a nice touch for a more personalized dessert experience. The dessert was a big hit, with its creamy texture and the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity from the pineapple. It’s definitely a recipe I’ll keep coming back to, especially during the summer months.


  • Crushed pineapple – 20 oz
  • Condensed milk – 1/2 tin or to taste
  • Cool whip – 1 tub (8 oz)


  1. Begin by draining the crushed pineapple to remove excess liquid.

  3. Add the drained crushed pineapple to the mixture and gently fold until well combined.
  4. Transfer the mixture to small dessert bowls for individual servings or into a large bowl for a communal serving option.
  5. Refrigerate the dessert until it sets. This usually takes a couple of hours.
  6. Once set, the Yummy Pineapple Dessert is ready to be served. Enjoy!
