We are finishing off this chilly ice cream week with a super easy recipe for pineapple ice cream topping. It only takes 3 simple ingredients to make this.
It is much cheaper to make your own pineapple topping and it is only takes about 5 minutes to make. Plus, it is way better tasting than the already prepared jar that you can buy at the store.
The only thing about making your own is you do need to allow time for the topping to cool. You can let it cool for a little bit and use it warm. However, I personally prefer it cold. So I just make it the day before I want to enjoy it. It is perfect to serve straight from the refrigerator.
This pineapple ice cream topping is perfect to use as one of the 3 traditional toppings for a banana split. It works great to use as part of an ice cream sundae bar for a party or gathering. You can also use it just by itself. It is perfect to serve with fresh bananas and ice cream. Vanilla or coconut ice cream would be great choices. Then top with this sweet pineapple topping along with a sprinkling of toasted coconut. The result is a beautiful tropical paradise in a sundae.
