All Year Round Tropical Pineapple Dessert

This dessert is something divine! Despite the tropical ingredients used in it, in my family, this is a dessert that everyone awaits during our gatherings either on Christmas Eve or on a summer dinner where we are finally all together after many months being apart. I got the recipe from my aunt who is always in charge to prepare it and satisfy our sugar cravings. If you also are craving a rich dessert, give this pineapple dessert a try!


INGREDIENTS for 4 servings:
Ready in 2-4 hoursPreparation time: 10 minutes

  • ladyfinger cookies
  • 250 g sweet condensed milk
  • 250 g whole milk
  • 750 ml heavy cream, cold
  • 1 can pineapples chuncks
  • desiccated coconut (optional, to garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • sugar to taste


  • In a saucepan, combine the whole milk, the sweet condensed milk and the corn starch. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until it thickens into a cream, about 10 minutes. Let it cool.
  • Separate the pineapple chunks from its juice.
  • In a saucepan, heat the pineapple chunks for a few minutes with some sugar, to taste.
  • Dip the ladyfinger cookies into the pineapple juice quickly as they should not go soft.
  • In a square/rectangular form, alternate a layer of cookies, a layer of pineapples chuncks and a layer of cream. Whip the heavy cream and top the dessert with it.
  • Garnish with pineapple chunks, or sprinkle desiccated coconut over the whipped cream.
