HEALTH BENEFITS: The 411 on dried pineapple!
- A source of fiber
- Excellent source of fast-acting carbohydrates for boosts of energy
CULINARY TWIST: Guilt-free snacking!
The shape of pineapple rings presents an opportunity to make healthy, energy boosting snacks that will satisfy sweet cravings! Spread peanut butter, or the nut butter of your choice, over the surface of a pineapple ring. Add chopped nuts, shredded coconut, chocolate shavings, and/or fresh fruits over the nut butter to create delicious after school snacks, midday treats, or simple desserts! If you’re looking for a chocolate-fix, use store bought chocolate-hazelnut spread in place of the nut butter.
As with most dried fruits, you can also use your pineapple rings in granola/trail mixes, cereals, baked goods, and even savory dishes. Pairing pineapple rings with baked hams or poultry dishes adds wonderful flavor. Dried pineapple also holds its shape while tenderizing in slow-cookers or braised dishes.
ABOUT PINEAPPLES: Did you know?
