  1. Just got this same recipe from a friend but no instructions. Came across your site, with the exact items, and you finished the puzzle (to keep or not keep the pineapple juice!). I never made this before but it was yummy. I added coconut flakes to mine and an extra 8 oz can of pineapple (w/o extra juice). I could def see how cherries or fruit cocktail would be good to. Thanks!
