Fast and Easy Pineapple Dessert

This is the perfect no-bake sweet treat when you want something delicious and don't have too much time. I love it because you can add a number fruits and even vanilla waffers or ginger snaps to it. If you want to add bananas do it right before serving and don't store it because it will turn brown...yuck!

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 can of pineapple chunks (canned fruit works better because it lasts longer)
  • 1/2 can of low fat condensed milk
  • 8 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
Here's what to do:
  1. Use an electric mixer to beat cream cheese and condensed milk together until smooth and creamy.
  2. Drain about half of the pineapple juice from the can and add chunks and juice to the cream cheese mixture (plus any other fruit).
  3. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
  4. It last for for about 4 - 5 days in fridge.
Enjoy!

  1. Hi Jackie,
    I'm not a cook so his might be a dumb question. What size can for the pineapple, the big can or the small can? I would LOVE to try this.

  2. Hi! I'm not exactly sure because I don't have the can on hand but I'm pretty sure I use the Dole 20 oz. can of pineapple chunks. remember to drain about half of the juice from the can. You can also try it with other fruits like strawberries, peaches, grapes, etc... Hope you like it! :)

  9. Hey, I'd like to try to make this for a party. What is the serving size/ingredient ratios? Thank you.

  10. Hi there! I usually serve small amounts(maybe 8 chunks or so) becuase it's pretty sweet. You can try serving it in a punch bowl so guests can serve themselves. hope this helps! =)

    4. Taylor, I would say strawberries, mangos and peaches would work really good with this, just try to stay away from fruits that brown easily like bananas.
      =)

      Most of the recipes on here are family recipes that I get from my mom. Others are either from friends or from me experimenting in the kitchen! :)

  11. Thank you for the advice! I made a huge batch for the 20 or so people at my office. And while they liked it, they couldn't eat a lot, so there was a lot leftover. But I consider it a success. Thanks for the recipe - I learned something new!
