Quick Dessert for 1

Last night I made this light and delicious dessert because I have not had dessert since Lent began, but mainly because Mama K (AKA Ms.SON1) had posted this to Pinterest and I saw it earlier in the evening. I had everything it called for so I gave it a shot.  Oh man was it ever delicious and did I mention it was also low calorie and paleo. (Do not be put off by the paleo label.  It could be just as easily be made non-paleo and I am sure it would be equally delicious)


 Frozen Pineapple Fluff




1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/8 cup almond milk or whole milk
1 teaspoon stevia or 2 teaspoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon vanilla



Put the frozen pineapple in a blender and blend until it is somewhat like pineapple chunky snow.  Add the remaining ingredients and blend until it is smooth.  Put it in a bowl and enjoy.  Do not put it in a bowl, hunt for camera, give up and hunt for the phone, answer the phone and talk to Mom for a few minutes before taking a picture.  It is delicious but does start to melt quickly and if you wait about 3 minutes before eating it this is what you get.

In spite of the slight melt, I felt like I was eating something decadent and really felt like I was being a paleo cheat when I wasn't.  Now that I have found this I might have to start making it a couple of times a week, and this is just my beginning point. Next time I might add a little raw coconut to the pineapple for a pina colada flavor. A little fresh mint maybe? And I can't imagine how delicious it will be during the summer made with a fresh frozen peach.  Mango is another possibility.
Any other ideas you can think of?

Oh and "Beware the Ides of March", yall

  1. Yummmm!! What a nice treat to get a taste of summer. I love the simplicity of this dessert. This sounds like a fun recipe to try with different fruits and flavors- berries, bananas.etc.

  2. Pineapple is not my favorite fruit, so I imagine this would be heavenly with peaches. Sounds like it was a welcome addition to your recent eating.

    1. I had some frozen peaches and tried it tonight. The flavor was fabulous but I over blended it and it was a little less icy than last night. When I make it this summer I will cut the peaches in a very small dice then freeze them quickly . I think then I could get it well chopped without over
      processing it.

  3. Yum.
    Mangoes would be good (mango almost anything is good). And berries. Definitely berries. Nectarines could be good too.

  4. And YUM!!! I'm trying to eat clean again which means in Sonya speak-cutting out the dairy. This would work cuz I'm craving sweet treats.
    And giggle about calling mom and then taking a picture.

  5. I have had it up to my eyeballs with clean eating, but I know I have to continue it after Lent (7 more days but who's counting?) I think I will do 6 days of intense paleo and 1 day off each week for a while. Maybe then I can keep what I have lost off and continue to loose a bit more.
