Buying fresh Pineapple hints……………….

To buy and store fresh pineapple, start by selecting a pineapple that has vibrant yellow and green skin with no white or browned areas. Next, gently squeeze the fruit to check that it’s firm but still has a little give. Additionally, make sure that all the eyes are similar in size and color, and are free of mold.

Carrot Cake
Carrots give carrot cake a health-halo effect–people think it’s health food, but it’s usually very high in fat and calories. But our version has about 40 percent less calories and 50 percent less fat than most. First, we use less oil in our batter. Then we skip the butter in the frosting (don’t worry, it’s still light and smooth). To ensure the cake is moist, we add nonfat buttermilk and crushed pineapple…………………………………..

Easy Carrot Cake Cupcakes
These moist and delicious cupcakes take on a hint of the tropics thanks to pineapple and coconut. Traditional cream cheese frosting is usually made with regular cream cheese and butter. This version is lightened up by substituting a combination of reduced-fat cream cheese and low-fat Greek yogurt…………………………………
