No luau is complete without at least a few delicious pineapple recipes.

I love biting into freshly cut pineapple. It’s juicy, sweet, and oh so tasty. I also love grilled pineapple. Just toss a little on the grill during a summer barbecue. And then stick it on your hamburger patty with a little BBQ sauce and you’ve got yourself a great pineapple BBQ burger.

Below I’ve collected 9 delicious pineapple desserts and drinks that are sure to delight your guests.
