What happens to the crushed pineapple after the juice is drained? In the instructions, I didn't see where it was used.

So very sorry, I don't know why Thrifty Fun didn't catch this error!


Step #6...When adding jello to creamed cream cheese also add the drained out crushed pineapple! All gets beat together and then put in the freezer again.

Thank you so very much for catching my mistake. I hope when you make it, you will come back and let me know how much you loved it!!! Enjoy! :)

We have fixed the original recipe to show the extra step. It's hard for us to notice missing ingredients sometimes so it is great if a careful reader can let us know if something seems off.
