Pineapple Bliss

Memorial Day weekend is quickly approaching, which means the start of cook-out season.  I have a few parties to attend in the next couple weeks and came across a light, yummy and low-fat dessert to contribute to the goods. It's a cinch to make and would look adorable with a slice of citrus gummy candy or brightly colored sprinkles on top, and cute, summery liners.
