There are a few things that are 100% necessary for summer. Like a lots of sunscreen, sundresses, sunglasses, a barbecue and a “recipe for success” – That’s what we call a summer dessert.
When someone thinks of a “summer dessert,” most likely cake type of dessert does not come to their mind. Usually, sweet treats in the scorching hot summer months include ice cream, popsicles, snow cones and the occasional milkshake.

If you aren’t a big fan of pineapple for some odd reason then you can substitute an equal amount of crushed strawberries (and I am certain other fruit would work too).
