2-minute Pineapple Dessert

First of all, this post was supposed to be for yesterday (I am cheating my publishing this on yesterday's date ;))... I couldn't publish on time as my system got malware and am still in the process of cleaning it. I have borrowed my friend's laptop.. so that I can quickly hit 'Publish'....:)

..I am so glad, finally I am able to share this easy-peasy dessert with all of you, which I learnt from one of my office colleagues, V. It has no cooking involved and trust me, the taste is mouth-watery. This is her signature dish for almost every pot-luck at our office and we eagerly wait for it, every single time. Yesterday, it was time to take the plunge & create my own. I stayed true to most of the recipe, but to add the touch of saffron was my idea. I love this queen of spices - as DK says 'the stylish and regal spice of all'..

.. do give this recipe a try and you will be pleasantly surprised with it results.. just like I did, when tasted for the first time..

2-minute Pineapple dessert (Adapted from my office colleague, V)


1.5 cups (canned) crushed pineapple [in 100% pineapple juice]
1 cup fat-free condensed milk [Update: I used sweetened condensed milk]
1 cup light whipped cream
few saffron threads, dissolved in a tbsp of hot water


In a large bowl, mix crushed pineapple, condensed milk and whipped cream. Whisk the ingredients rigoursly so that there are no lumps. Add dissolved saffron and stir well. Chill for atleast 3 hours. Serve.

I am sending this as an entry to DK's JFI:Saffron. :)

  13. Its me again:-) One doubt..did u use sweetened condensed milk or non sweetenend?


  14. Nilu: Thanks dear. I am so glad you liked the recipe & it was a hit :)

    Parita: I used fat-free sweetened condensed milk. Thanks for pointing it out. I will update the post.


  15. This is really a Quick and Easy recipe.. I guess TH will like it of course he is an ardent lover of pineapple..

  16. I could not find light whipping cream in my area grocery store. Do you use can of instant light whipping cream?
    I used light cream and this turned out a littte loose like "dudhpaak" or "basundi" NC

  17. Nimisha - I haven't personally used any instant light whipping cream and not sure how good would it taste. light cream has not much body as whipping cream so it will turn out to be a little loose as you said. :-)

  18. Looks yummy! Do you add the pineapple juice as well?

    1. Hi Divyangi, Thanks for dropping by! Sometimes I do add the pineapple juice as well depending on how sweet I want the dessert to be. :-)
