How to make a Mixed Fruit Pineapple Boat & Pineapple Fruit Dip:
To make these Jungle Book inspired Jungle Pineapple Boats, you’re going to need a whole pineapple, some mixed fruit of your choice and some marshmallow fluff cream.
Time needed: 20 minutes.
- Prepare the pineapple.
Take your pineapple and just slice it carefully down the middle. You’re going to need a pretty sharp knife to do this so please be careful.
- Scoop out the fruit from the pineapples.
Once you’ve got your pineapple sliced in half, use a knife or spoon to get some of the pineapple out to create the pineapple boats/bowls.
Make sure to reserve any of the pineapple juice that you can get from the pineapple because you’re going to need about 2 oz of pineapple juice for the marshmallow pineapple dip.
- Wash and Cut Fruit.
Cut up your fruit and add it to one side of the pineapple, I always cut up extra fruit and leave it in a bowl to easily refill my pineapple boat. I used a mixture of strawberries, kiwi, blackberries, green grapes and bananas. You can use any type of fruit that you want though, we’re not going to be super picky about that. Just use what you love.
- Make the marshmallow dip
For the marshmallow fruit dip, you’re going to want to spoon the marshmallow fluff into a medium or large bowl. Yes, it’s going to be sticky, sorry, it’s marshmallow fluff. Marshmallow fluff is always sticky. Just lick it off your fingers when no one is looking. I promise that I won’t tell.
Add in about 2 oz of the pineapple juice and stir. Now stir, stir, stir until the marshmallow dip is smooth. Pour the marshmallow dip into the other half of the pineapple.
- Set it up and dig in!
Serve each pineapple half, side by side. I would suggest serving it with two large spoons so that people can scoop out fruit and drizzle it with dip however I think that sitting out some decorative toothpicks would work just as nice.
Want other fruits? Maybe add these:
- Mandarin oranges
