Pineapple Whip Frosting

11 Apr

Delcious box of treats!

I have yet to find a better summer time frosting than this Pineapple Whip frosting! It is perfect on-top of angel food cake, white cake, lemon cake, strawberry cake, vanilla cake – and pretty much anything else you want to put it on! Best part…it is so easy! Who wants to spend all summer in the kitchen? Not me! That’s why this is my favorite, “go-to” frosting recipe for those hot summer days!

Pineapple Whip Ingredients:

  • 1 tub of Cool Whip – thawed
  • 1 small can of crushed pineapple – partially drained
  • 1 box of instant vanilla pudding


In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together the entire tub of cool whip and the package of dry vanilla pudding mix. Drain the juice from the crushed pineapple – do not drain completely though, you will want to keep 3 to 4 tbs of juice. Gradually add in spoonfuls of crushed pineapple, mix with spatula until fully combined. Let chill in fridge for 15 minutes.

There it is – only 3 ingredients and about 5 minutes later – you have a delicious topping for your summer cupcakes. I like to add a slice of strawberry to each cupcake – the pineapple and strawberry flavors compliment each other well!  Enjoy!

Til next time, Stay Sweet!

Xoxo, Jill

    Oooo. I’ve done this frosting before and it was a huge hit! I used huge goblets and layered cubes of angel food cake, whipped frosting, and strawberries (repeat ’til cup is full). It is also lovely in a big glass bowl, trifle style. And now I want cake…
