HINTS & TIPS
'Lighten up' Pineapple is a excellent fruit with its own natural sweetness, using a tinned version in water is a great substitute. When making this recipe leave out the honey or try and reduce by as much as you can, 1/2 a tablespoon instead of the amount in the recipe. Cinnamon is also a lovely warm sweet spice adding in a little extra will do no harm. Serve with low fat yogurt as a dessert
