From savory surprises to sweet treats, we’re celebrating the power of pineapple in all its glory by sharing a mouthwatering list of unconventional pineapple foods with you. 

Dig in and prepare yourself to indulge in the taste of paradise. The fruit of the hour has arrived! Let the pineapple party begin. 

1. Pineapple Cheesecake 

Cheesecake is the ultimate creamy cake (or is it a pie? Hmm). With its lightweight, cloud-like texture, the lush flavor of cream cheese lingers on the tongue with each bite. This decadent dessert is the perfect base for many flavors, but Pineapple Cheesecake has the spotlight today. It has the perfect balance of richness, tartness, and sweetness that pair perfectly with the crunch of a buttery graham cracker crust. You’ll be shouting ‘Encore!’ as soon as you finish your first slice.   

2. Pineapple Cotton Candy 

This sugary confection looks like it should exist in a fantasy world. But somehow, we’re lucky enough to enjoy this magical cloud of spun sugar in real life. Cotton candy is a sugary, sparkling masterpiece as light as air that dissolves on the tongue, leaving a mild sweetness behind that makes you crave more. This Pineapple Mango Cotton Candy is a unique treat infused with the sweet and tangy flavor of the tropics. Each melty taste will have your palate dancing in delight.

3. Iced Pineapple Matcha Green Tea 

We bet you’ve seen the popular Matcha Latte on your favorite cafe’s menu. Matcha is a vibrant powdered emerald tea with a long history of being used in traditional practices in China and Japan. This tea is loaded with antioxidants and may help support cardiovascular health. Researchers are also interested in its possible cancer-fighting properties. This drink’s robust, earthy flavors pair perfectly with the burst of tropical sweetness and creaminess of coconut milk in this Iced Pineapple Matcha Green Tea recipe. Each sip of this flavorful blend invites you to sip mindfully, enjoy the current moment, and imagine a tropical paradise getaway. 

4. Pineapple Hot Sauce 

Now, the party is heating up! Pineapple Hot Sauce has entered the room, and this spicy delight will ignite your taste buds with its fiery flavor. Delve into layers of tart, sweet spiciness as you drizzle Pineapple Hot Sauce onto your food. Whether you like it mild or mouth-scorchingly hot, pineapple hot sauce brings the delicious heat with a complex balance of flavors that perks up the senses and will make you do a happy dance. 

You can even make your own at home. We hear it goes great in a Bloody Mary. 

5. Pineapple Guacamole 

Guacamole is a popular dip with an international culinary celebrity status. We know and love it today, but guacamole has a long history going further back than many people realize. Evidence suggests the ancient peoples of Mexico ate wild avocados as early as 8,000 BCE. And you can see the importance attributed to the avocado through beliefs such as the guacamole recipe being passed down to the Toltec people by the feathered-serpent god Quetzalcoatl. From there, the recipe spread across Mesoamerica, developing to fit regional preferences. 

Now you know some history on this sensational dip. You always knew it was delicious, of course. It’s time to add a sweet twist to the mix. Charred Pineapple Guacamole combines the creaminess of avocado, a bite of chili, the zestiness of lemon juice, and the sweetness of pineapple. Dip in your tortilla chips and enjoy a tropical flavor explosion that will make your taste buds throw a fiesta!

Originating in Mexico, Tepache is a delightful and refreshing beverage made by fermenting pineapple peel. With its pale golden color, pineapple-y sweetness, and a hint of tang from the fermentation, this beverage feels like drinking warm sunshine. Pineapple Chili Tepache kicks up the spice, adding a vibrant heat to this effervescent drink. After one taste, you’ll want to throw your own party. We also suggest grabbing some of that pineapple guac for your guests; they’ll thank you.
