Ironically this recipe was inspired by a pin on Pinterest. But once I clicked the link the picture was not what I thought it was! I decided I needed to create a recipe for what I had imagined it was, because it sounded so yum! And was a pretty little snack!

A great addition to this recipe would be a cherry on top, but alas I have no cherries. But I may go buy some so I can try it out.

I do not add the ginger straight into the cottage cheese mixture because I serve this to my kids and they would not eat it with the ginger. If you don’t have kids or your kids are not as picky as mine add it to the mixture.

Fresh Pineapple How to:

This is one of my favorite kitchen tools right now! A Pineapple Corerand it is so well worth the $10 on Amazon!
