  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • juice 1 lime
  • 1 pineapple, skinned and very thinly sliced (like pineapple carpaccio)
  • vanilla or coconut ice cream, to serve (optional)


  1. Gently heat the caster sugar, vanilla paste, lime juice and 50ml water in a pan until the sugar dissolves.

  2. Arrange the pineapple over a plate or platter. Drizzle over the syrup and set aside until ready to serve so the syrup can soak into the pineapple. Eat with vanilla or coconut ice cream, if you like.
