Tips to Make Sweet Pineapple Treat

  • Ensure the crust is fully cooled before adding the filling to prevent sogginess.
  • Drain the crushed pineapple well to avoid excess moisture in the dessert.
  • Whip the cream just until stiff peaks form to avoid overmixing.


For a tropical twist, you can add shredded coconut to the filling or garnish the dessert with fresh pineapple slices for a more vibrant presentation.


  1. Can I use fresh pineapple instead of canned? Yes, just make sure to drain any excess juice to keep the filling from becoming too wet.
  2. Can I replace the graham cracker crust with a different type of cookie crust? Absolutely, feel free to experiment with different cookie crusts like vanilla wafers or shortbread cookies.
  3. Is it necessary to chill the dessert before serving? Chilling helps the flavors meld together and sets the layers, resulting in a better texture, so we recommend chilling for at least 2 hours.
