This is heavenly. I really enjoyed the flavors of the mint and the pineapple together, and it was super easy to make. Although this recipe includes sugar, it's still healthier than most desserts. I used Florida Crystals and about 3 sprigs of fresh mint from my garden. I don't have a mortar and pestle (yet), so I pulsed the sugar and mint together in my food processor. It's probably not as fragrant (or fun) that way, but the results were great! It went over really well at a vegan potluck. I can't wait to make it again for future events!

This was alright. I would prefer fresh pineapple alone though. I used brown sugar crystals and fresh mint from the garden. I didn't like the fact that the sugar is unhealthy and the fresh pineapple was already sweet enough without. I didn't feel the mint went well with the pineapple until it sat a while and the flavour mellowed. Made for ZWT6 Britain. For my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.

What fantastic flavours together!! This is my new favourite food! So simple, yet fresh. A true summer taste treat in the middle of winter.

Delish, refreshingly yummy good! Made 1/4 of the recipe. A sprinkle of rum or tequila would have been a nice adult pickings.
