What to do with an abundance of pineapple

Take it to the tropics!

Pineapples are in abundance this summer and we’ve certainly been making the most of their sweet taste (and low cost)! Whilst packed with vitamin C and other nutritional benefits, pineapples are also a versatile ingredient that lends itself well to both sweet and savoury dishes. It's tropical flavour pairs nicely with lime, macadamia, cilantro, basil, caramel, rosemary (and the list goes on).

Here’s what we’ve been cooking with pineapple this summer season:


Want to eat pineapple for breakfast all year round? Buy them whilst they’re in season, peel, cut into cubes and keep in the freezer for up to 6 months. This is a great idea for smoothies too and you will save heaps of money on buying supermarket frozen pineapple later in the year!


Dinner time

Don’t forget dessert
