Pineapple Fries

This is a simple fun way to get your kids to eat nutrient dense fruits and good fats. Pineapple will lower your kid's risk of getting asthma, regulate digestion, and can even help them get over sunburn. The fat that is in the coconut milk will help balance out the sugar that is in the fruit. It also helps with brain development, win - win. 

Dips make food more fun for kids. If you have a picky eater on your hands this is a great way to make food more interactive. This is a fun play on fries and ketchup... what kid doesn't love that?

This recipe is: Paleo, Whole30, dairy free, gluten free, and egg free. 

Pro Tips:

  • Store the pineapple upside down in the fridge. This way the sugar that has settled at the bottom of the pineapple redistributes. 
  • This dip is not very sweet because pineapple is so sweet. If it isn't sweet enough for you try adding a date or two to the food processor. 
  • You can use the raspberry dipping sauce with pretty much any fruits. It is also good with cucumber. Give it a try!

Pineapple Fries with Raspberry Coconut Dip

  • 1 pineapple
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • *½ cup full fat coconut milk (can)

How to Make it:

  1. Wash raspberries. Cut pineapple into strips (like french fries).**
  2. Put raspberries and coconut milk into food processor or blender. Blend till combined.
  3. Serve pineapple alongside dipping sauce.

*This is a can of full fat coconut milk. It will be on the shelf at the grocery store. Sometimes it is with international food or in the healthy food section.

**Cut the bottom of pineapple off. Hold on to the top and cut the skin off around. Then cut off the top of the pineapple. Next cut down the side of the pineapple, right against the core. Then take that piece and cut off the rounded outside. Now you can cut the pineapple into strips.
