Crushed Pineapple – one 20 oz can of crushed pineapple in the pineapple juice.
Cool Whip – this is an optional topping that we love:) It can be substituted with whipped cream or frosting. Perhaps
Fresh Fruit – like strawberry slices or additional pineapple for topping! Perhaps some sweetened shredded coconut!
