Whenever we are in Hawaii, we stop at a local Farmers Market to grab a bunch of Hawaiian fruits to enjoy during our vacation. And we can’t leave without picking up at least 2 pineapples!

It’s nearly impossible to think about Hawaii without picturing all the delicious pineapple desserts and drinks. We use fresh or frozen pineapple a lot when making Hawaiian smoothies for breakfast or Hawaiian cocktails to enjoy out on our lanai.

Now that our Hawaii trips have been postponed this year, we’ve resorted to baking a bunch of our favorite pineapple recipes as part of our effort to recreate our cancelled Hawaii vacation at home.

I thought I’d share some of the tastiest pineapple dessert recipes I’ve found so far that are sure to make your mouth water!
