If you want to eat healthy but still enjoy ice cream-like desserts there is a great, easy, raw pineapple ice cream dessert you can make. Raw fooders have been making this ice cream for a long time and it's a great standby raw recipe. It isn't really made with cream but the texture is that of ice cream, sorbet or sherbet. It's a real surprise when you make it for the first time.
It's simple and one of the easiest recipes to make if you want to eat healthy and want your family, friends and guests to eat healthy too. The kids love it. I have served it many times and no one even guessed that it wasn't really ice cream in fact people ask for it over and over again when they come to visit or when I serve it at events.
Of course it's a little hard to take to potlucks unless you're having it at home because it needs to be kept frozen. It's best served right after you make it. I often make it after my family or guests have arrived, but you don't have to. You can make it ahead of time and just keep it in the freezer.

Pineapple can stop or lessen inflammation in the body. It's been used for arthritis - both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, and to help repair tissues after injuries.

Pineapple can help digestion and is often used in some countries following the evening meal. It breaks down protein easily easing the demand on the body for its reserve supply of enzymes. It reduces blood clotting and can helps reduce or remove plaque from the artery walls.
