Big Birthday Bang – Cool whip Pineapple Dessert

June is a special month for me too.. I’m a June born too :) I couldnt wait to make this wonderful dessert for Meeta and of course, my husband K who really has sweet teeth( note the plural) . You have to see him eating sweets to believe me.

Desserts always dont turn out great for me as I am not much of a dessert eater. I prefer making easy, simple without a lot of stress and mess in the kitchen.

Alright, I first try out the dessert on K and then make a large amount for a potluck or a party I’m hosting. But before I make one,I have butterflies in my stomach, get jittery , yell, cant stand or sit for a long time, get restless, make a hundred calls to be reassured that its ok to have a dessert disaster.

Sometimes, I call a close friend over for moral support too ! That’s how my desserts turn out to be decent enough to enjoy another helping. And you know what? Most potlucks I attend, I’m asked to make a dessert!!

The dessert I decided for the birthday bash is simple and only requires mixing and freezing and can be made in large batches and the best part is .. It cant go wrong! No way!

This is my entry to Meeta’s Monthly Mingle

All you need is

1 can of crushed pineapple
1 15 oz tub of cool whip
1 can of condensed milk

For the toppings

1/ 2 can of mango pieces
A few sliced almonds

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, freeze for 6-8 hours and garnish with almonds and mango pieces(optional) and serve chilled.
