When it comes to design and fashion, pineapples have been all the rage this summer. It's hard to walk into a store without seeing a pineapple print garment or some sort of pineapple-themed accessory. And although I'm usually not a huge fan of 'cutesy' trends, this is one that I've been embracing. I mean, what's not to love about a summery dress covered in tiny pineapples?
The pineapple may be pretty much owning the pattern world right now, but trends aside, it's also a delicious - and incredibly healthy - fruit. I put frozen pineapple in my smoothies every single day, regardless of what other fruits and greens I'm including. And when it comes to drink or candy flavors, I always choose pineapple (when lemon, my #1, isn't an option of course). It's versatile too, and can be prepared countless ways and used in a wide variety of recipes. I've been on the lookout for some new ones lately, and decided that for this edition of 10 Great, I'd share with you guys some that I'm especially anxious to try.
What about you? Are you a fan of the pineapple trend? What about pineapple as a food?
