This was so good served over vanilla ice cream. It is also nice to be able to make a dessert worthy of company in only a few minutes. Thank you so much Evelyn/athens!

Delicious! We used pineapple juice (and were kind of confused about the size of a "glass", so we just used 8 oz. - standard juice glass size in the US). Served this over vanilla ice cream, delicious! Thank you for a wonderful dessert.
