This Pineapple Delight dessert is super easy and great for feeding a crowd. You will find this traditional cold treat to be simply delightful. Extremely refreshing!
Making refreshing summer desserts is always best for the hot summer months. Cakes and pies are great but we really enjoy super cold desserts to keep cooled off especially when we bbq. Our Lemon Lush is a perfect cool dessert but hubby was requesting a pineapple filled dessert. I was “delighted” to whip up something new for him to try after our grill out.
Pineapple is always refreshing and when you combine it with whipped cream, all I can say is “oh my”. This dessert includes a buttery graham cracker crust, followed by a creamy layer, then topped with the dreamiest pineapple whipped topping. After it has chilled in the fridge for a few hours, this stuff makes for one amazing summer dessert.
Simple recipes are great during summer months. We are always on the go it seems. Having an easy dessert that we can make that doesn’t require a ton of ingredients always works best. This recipe can be made in no time. I whipped it up when working on the laundry.
We really enjoyed this recipe. It makes for a perfect pot luck or picnic dessert. Say good-bye to those boring summer desserts, this summer dessert is a keeper!
