This is really a good light salad, which is healthy too and a good choice for anyone that likes carrots and they go well together with pineapple. I cut this recipe in half for us and put in a small Jello mold.

Carrot Pineapple Salad Recipe

1 pkg. (6 oz.) lemon Jello
2 cups boiling water
1 cup cold water
1 cup 7-Up
2 cups grated carrots
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple, drained

Dissolve Jello in boiling water. Add cold water and 7-Up and mix well. Let chill until syrupy. Add grated carrots and pineapple. Put in glass dish, or pan (or large mold) and chill until set. Can serve with salad dressing. We like it without the dressing.

This delicious cake dessert is the perfect size for a smaller group of people. If you can't find Jiffy cake mixes at the store, you can prepare a regular yellow cake mix, using half the batter for the dessert and the other half for cupcakes.

Also instead of Dream Whip on top, I have used Cool Whip at times.

Pineapple Pudding Cake Recipe

1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple
1 pkg. Jiffy yellow cake mix
1 small pkg. (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups milk
1 pkg. (4 serving size) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 pkg. Dream Whip (prepared) or whipped topping, thawed

Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Prepare cake mix according to directions on package, adding drained pineapple juice to the enough water to equal liquid called for in cake mix. Pour batter into greased and floured 9 inch square pan. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes, until tests done; cool. With electric mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy, gradually add milk. Add pudding mix, beating 2 minutes at medium speed. Fold in pineapple. Spread atop cake. Top with prepared whipped topping. Chill.
Makes 9 servings.

Pina Colada Trifle Recipe

1 (4-serving size) package vanilla instant pudding mix
1-1/2 cups milk
1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (9-inch) round angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 cup toasted coconut
8 maraschino cherries

In a medium bowl ,combine milk and pudding mix. Using a wire whisk, beat 30 seconds then let stand 2 minutes, or until thickened. Fold in whipped topping. In a trifle dish or glass bowl, layer half each of cake cubes, pudding, pineapple, and coconut. Repeat layers and top with cherries. Cover and chill 1 hour.

Note If you prefer, you can make these in individual dessert dishes. And if you'd like even more of an "adults only" pina colada flavor, you can drizzle rum over the cake cubes before layering. You can also reserve the pineapple juice and add enough milk to make 1 1/2 cups to give the pudding a pineapple taste.
