1 Ingredient 3 Ways: Pineapple

Fruits are an important source of things your body needs to stay healthy –think vitamin C, fiber and numerous different phytochemicals including antioxidants. They also deliver us a wonderful, all-natural sweet treat that we can enjoy every day.

Pineapples are available year round and are one of the most versatile fruits in the game. I like to buy two pineapples at a time – one to prepare, eat and refrigerate in a container straight away, and a second one to look pretty in my fruit bowl. You can also pop some of your leftover pineapple in a zip lock bag in the freezer ready for frozen desserts and smoothness.

Here are three of my favorite ways to serve pineapple:

Create a pineapple-infused green smoothie

Blend a cup of pineapple chunks with a celery stick, half a cucumber, a handful of spinach leaves, a slice of lemon and a cup of ice cubes to make the best green smoothie.


Serve up a pineapple salsa (with a kick)

Dice a cup of fresh pineapple into small pieces and combine with a red chili, the juice of half a lemon, a handful of coriander, a handful of fresh mint and half a red onion to make a yummy salsa to serve with slow-roasted pulled pork.


Fry some delicious caramelized pineapple

Heat a non-stick frying pan and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Add fresh pineapple chunks and fry for 5-7 minutes, tossing regularly, until the pineapple turns a lovely gold brown as the natural sugars caramelize. Serve with thick natural Greek yogurt for a total yum dessert, or top with my macadamia coconut crumble and bake in the oven.
