This is such a fresh and light dessert. Perfect for when you don’t fancy a heavy dessert but still want a sweet taste after your meal.
The pineapple is merged in a maple syrup infused with lime and vanilla extract, resulting in a delicious combination. It’s better to marinate it overnight so the pineapple juices and the infused syrup blend to perfection.
This fresh pineapple recipe is also super quick and easy to prepare. In 15 minutes, you have a healthy dessert ready to be devoured.
You will only need 1 ripe pineapple, 2 limes, maple syrup, vanilla and a bit of salt. I also added lime kaffir leaves but this is optional, and I served with coconut yoghurt – I love the combination of pineapple and coconut.
Pineapples are rich in nutrients, such as vitamin C, B6, manganese, and compounds that reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. Bromelain, a digestive enzyme that breaks down proteins, is also found in pineapples. This may help with digestion, especially in people who have pancreatic insufficiency.Print
