You may not remember why you bought that extra can of sliced pineapple (upside-down cake? fruit salad?), but you’ll be glad to have it on hand for a quick dessert that’s elegant enough to serve to company.
- 8 slices canned pineapple packed in juice, drained and chopped, juice reserved
- 2 Tbs. sugar, divided
- 1 Tbs. rum, optional
- 10 oz. light whipped cream cheese
- 1 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 12-oz. angel food cake, torn into bite-size pieces
Bring reserved pineapple juice and 1 Tbs. sugar to a boil in small saucepan, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in rum, if desired. Set aside.
Purée cream cheese, yogurt, vanilla extract, and remaining 1 Tbs. sugar in food processor until smooth.
Place 4 angel food cake pieces at bottom of each of 4 wine glasses. Drizzle 2 Tbs. pineapple juice mixture over cake. Spoon 2 Tbs. chopped pineapple over top. Spoon 2 Tbs. cream cheese mixture over pineapple. Repeat layering 2 more times, ending with cream cheese mixture. Garnish with sprig of mint, if desired.
