Start with a Piña Colada Dip, a creamy concoction of protein-rich Greek yogurt, coconut extract, and fresh pineapple that pairs perfectly with strawberries. For best results, make sure to use ripe, fresh pineapple. To check and see if a pineapple is ripe, smell the bottom of it; if it’s ripe, it will smell sweet. Also, when the skin of a ripe pineapple is pressed, it will yield slightly. You can also purchase fresh cut pineapple chunks in the fruit section of most supermarkets.
