Making Kool-Aid pineapples is a fun and colorful way to enjoy a sweet and fruity treat. These pineapples are typically made by soaking pineapple chunks in flavored Kool-Aid, resulting in a sweet and tangy pineapple treat. Here’s how to make Kool-Aid pineapples:


  • 1 whole fresh pineapple
  • 1 packet of Kool-Aid drink mix (any flavor of your choice)
  • 1 cup of sugar (adjust to taste)
  • Water
  • A large bowl or container with a lid
  • Knife and cutting board


  1. Prepare the Pineapple:
    • Start by washing the fresh pineapple thoroughly. Use a sharp knife to remove the top, bottom, and skin from the pineapple.
  2. Remove the Core:
    • Cut out the tough, fibrous core from the center of the pineapple. You should now have a cylinder of pineapple flesh.
  3. Slice into Chunks:
    • Slice the pineapple cylinder into bite-sized chunks or pieces. You can make them as large or as small as you prefer.
  4. Prepare the Kool-Aid Solution:
    • In a separate bowl, mix the Kool-Aid drink mix with water according to the instructions on the packet. Typically, you’ll dissolve the Kool-Aid mix in 2 cups of water. However, you can adjust the amount of water to taste, especially if you want a more concentrated flavor.
  5. Add Sugar:
    • Add sugar to the Kool-Aid mixture and stir until it’s completely dissolved. The amount of sugar you add depends on your preference for sweetness. Start with 1 cup of sugar, and then add more if desired.
  6. Soak the Pineapple Chunks:
    • Place the pineapple chunks in a large bowl or container with a lid.
  7. Pour the Kool-Aid Mixture:
    • Pour the prepared Kool-Aid mixture over the pineapple chunks, ensuring that they are fully submerged.
  8. Cover and Refrigerate:
    • Seal the container with a lid or cover it securely with plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator to allow the pineapple chunks to soak in the Kool-Aid mixture. Let them marinate for at least a few hours or overnight for the best flavor.
  9. Stir Occasionally (Optional):
    • If you have time, you can occasionally stir the pineapple chunks in the Kool-Aid mixture to ensure they absorb the flavor evenly.
  10. Serve Chilled:
    • Once the pineapple chunks have soaked up the Kool-Aid flavor to your liking, remove them from the refrigerator. You can serve them chilled as a sweet and tangy treat.

These Kool-Aid pineapples make a colorful and flavorful dessert or snack. Experiment with different Kool-Aid flavors to create a variety of sweet and fruity pineapple treats. Enjoy!
