I’m getting so excited for Summer! I got my Summer flowers in their pots. Planted a couple more Lilac bushes and the weather is fabulous! I getting so excited for Summer parties that I had to share a dessert that will go so well with any occasion.

This is a super easy dessert to put together before your next shin dig! I have made a dessert that is quite similar and is requested all the time. It’s Strawberry dessert.  Both desserts are the kind that you want to lick the pan when it’s gone because it’s that good!





  • Before you serve this, place it in the freezer for up to an hour. It helps when you are serving it. If that’s not possible, the yummy goodness will still shine through.
  • If you have leftovers, which I will be surprised, cover it with plastic wrap, and it should stay good up to 3 days.
  • I used Cool Whip but you can use homemade whipped cream. I would add a little gelatin to make it more stable.
  • You can use fresh fruit but the consistency will change a little.

  3. Press the mixture into a 9×13 inch pan. And bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool completely.

  4. In a mixing bowl, combine filling ingredients, just not the pineapple and with a hand mixer beat until smooth and creamy.
