This is the easiest pineapple dessert recipe you’ll find anywhere. Easy pineapple dessert has been one of the most popular desserts on my blog to date due to its simplicity and amazing taste. It’s 2023 and this is still the very top recipe year after year.

I can admit it, I’d eat dessert all day if I could pull it off. I’ve been in a fruity mood lately, so this is the perfect hack.

Along with being so easy to throw together, it packs a yummy and surprising punch!

Last spring I made this Pineapple Lush Cake which blew my mind. So easy to make and the filling?

Well, that’s what completely inspired this dessert idea. Crushed pineapple is the star player in this simple treat.

The extra juices in this simple recipe soak up vanilla instant pudding mix and when combined with whipped topping (Cool Whip) comes together into a very tasty and satisfying dessert. Until I made this recipe, I never realized just how delicious a canned pineapple dessert could truly be. All of these flavors just work so well together and you get to skip the mess of cutting up a fresh pineapple.
