Made with eggs, condensed milk, evaporated milk, pineapple chunks and 100% pineapple juice, this Pineapple Flan is an easy tropical twist on a classic Latin dessert.
I love my fair share of dessert but flan is by far one of my favorites. It is sweet, creamy and very versatile.
Flan can be made in a variety of flavors like it’s the case with this pineapple flan or my popular coconut flan. The best part is how incredibly easy it is to make! All you have to do is blend all the ingredients until smooth and bake in a water bath until dense and custard-like.
To make this delicious pineapple flan, I used a combination of the traditional ingredients (eggs, condensed milk, evaporated milk) and Dole Pineapple Chunks with Pineapple Juice.
I always keep my fair share of Dole Packaged Foods fruits in my pantry. There really is no excuse to not include more fruit in our daily eating habits when you can have a can (or a bowl) of pure fruit goodness in your pantry at all times. Plus, they can come in very handy at dinner time. Dole pineapple can be used in many ways in recipes to change up weekend events, as well as weekday meals.
And nothing beats that feeling you get when you find a good recipe and realize that you have all of the ingredients at home!
