  • 1 whole Pineapple as ripe as you can find
  • 1/2 cup honeydew melon chunks
  • 1/2 cup cantaloupe chunks
  • 1/2 cup watermelon chunks
  • 1/3 cup Blueberries
  • 1/3 cup Strawberries halved
  • 1/2 cup Pineapple Chunks
  • 2-3 Scoops Favorite Sherbet


  • Before cutting, turn the pineapple to find the most attractive and stable way for it to lie flat, without it rolling over.
  • Next, using a very sharp, large knife, cut the pineapple lengthwise - either into 2 equal halves, or about 1/3 of the way through. Whichever you prefer. Make sure to leave as much of the stem intact as possible.
  • Using a smaller sharp knife, remove the fruit from the larger section by making a cut around the perimeter of the fruit about 1/2 inch in from the outside edge.
  • Next, score the pineapple as if you're dicing it, and scoop out the fruit with a large spoon.
  • Place the chunks into a large bowl for later use.
  • Pour out any excess juice, and use the spoon to carefully scrape the shreds off the sides.
  • Cut the other fruits into bite-sized pieces, tossing the pieces into the large bowl with the pineapple.
  • Add in the strawberries and blueberries.
  • Toss the fruit to mix it up.
  • Then use a large slotted spoon to scoop the fruit chunks into the pineapple shell.
  • Top with 2 or 3 scoops of your favorite flavor sherbet and enjoy!
