As for the whipped cream topping, you can prepare your own using some egg whites and powdered sugar (which can also be replaced with powdered erythritol or stevia if you wish to avoid sugar). You can also prepare the topping with heavy whipping cream or simply use the store-bought one.
This delicious recipe is a great opportunity to use fresh strawberries-especially if you're in a strawberry season. If not, you can replace them with some other fresh berries, figs, or finely chopped peaches. The choice is yours!
If you have a fresh piece of juicy pineapple, then it's already good as it is – simply sprinkle with some sugar and burn with your Zen Spirit culinary torch. However, if you have some spare time, a great idea is to grill your pineapple slices for 2-3 minutes per side before caramelizing the sugar. Another option is to brush your pineapple with some freshly squeezed lime juice and bake at 400°F for 10 minutes, turning halfway through.
