Pineapple Boat Dessert for Dieters
Written by Diet Bites
A recipe for healthy weight loss.
When we think about losing weight, it's not the happiest topic to ponder. Most of us would much rather be nestled inside a boat - sailing to a cool tropical island.
Once we arrive, we would stick our feet into the wet sand and squish it between our naked toes.
Then we'd walk into the salty water and kick it about to wash off all the sand.
And afterwards, well we'd go take a luxurious ride in the hammock that is tied between two large palm trees, and we'd sway in the wind along with the palms.
And just perhaps, we'd also enjoy a healthy pineapple boat.
After all, it would be a much happier story to imagine than having a coconut fall out of one of those swaying palm trees only to wake us up from our beautiful daydream, right?
Pineapple Boat, a lower calorie fruit recipe for dieters and non-dieters alike
The Recipe Ingredients
Scoop out the pineapple using an ice cream scooper. Now we have two hollow boats that need to be filled.
After we fill them, then we will cut them again so that we have four boats. If there are friends on the island - give them a holler because our pineapple boats are almost ready to enjoy.
Next, let's concentrate on the fresh fruits that would go best with pineapple because not all fruits marry well - although most do.
The following will pair very well with the scoops of pineapple: sliced banana including finger bananas, purple grapes, green grapes, dark cherries and cantaloupe.
Add the sliced and whole fruits to the pineapple that you scooped out earlier and toss them with a bit of the brown sugar. You don't have to use the brown sugar, but it adds a sweet note to the fruit and brings it into perfect harmony.
Now you're ready to eat - but if your friends haven't arrived to the beach party yet, then cover with plastic wrap and chill in the cooler until they do. It keeps nicely and chilling allows the fruit to absorb the flavor of the brown sugar.
If you wish to top your pineapple boat with low fat whipped cream - yes from a can for fifteen calories per serving OR with reduced fat whipped topping, then please do.
