Pineapple Princesses began as a tribute to Ruby Borrowdale, the home economist behind the 'Golden Circle Tropical Recipe Book' tested in the Golden Circle kitchen and modified and updated in the Pineapple Princesses' test kitchens.
As Ruby said "pineapple is a versatile food" . . .
no fat, high in vitamin C and full of the flavour of Queensland sunshine. The blog continues as more and more pineapple recipes are discovered from around the world.
“The healthy taste of summer, these tasty little balls are
quick and easy to make. A great mid morning or post work out snack and the kids
love them too! And they are wheat free, dairy free and nut free!” Katrina Butterworth

only last for about 3-5 days in the refrigerator. Unless the kids or your
husband finds them first!”
