Do you use fresh or canned pineapple as a topping?
You can use fresh pineapple if available, giving you a deeper, more authentic pineapple flavour and a firmer, still juicier, texture. But canned pineapple slices or chunks work well too – just remember to drain the juice before adding it to the skyr to avoid excess moisture. This step ensures that the topping maintains the perfect balance of flavours and textures.
What skyr or yogurt to use with a pineapple and coconut topping?
For your pineapple and coconut topping, you have the option to use either plain or flavoured skyr or yogurt. If you enjoy the natural taste without added flavours, opt for plain versions to let the toppings take the spotlight. Alternatively, using a flavoured version, such as vanilla, will elevate the overall taste and provide an extra layer of complementary sweetness and flavour to the topping.
What other toppings go well with pineapple and coconut?
Incorporating a variety of toppings enhances the delightful flavours of pineapple and coconut. Hazelnuts bring a nutty note and a delicious crunch while adding some granola offers a tasty option that never fails. For a tropical twist, include fresh mango or tangy passion fruit. These combinations create an exotic burst of flavour, perfectly complementing the creamy skyr for an unforgettable taste experience.
