NuPlus Pineapple Compote© by Natural Earth Herbs
This Sunrider NuPlus Pineapple Compote recipe was inspired by my beloved grandmother.
This is my grandmother’s homemade recipe. She was an avid gardner and naturalista! Even though time was of the essence, she believed in making everything from scratch using plants, vegetables, fruits and herbs from the garden. So this recipe is all natural, super nutritious and super easy to make.
This Sunrider inspired NuPlus Pineapple Compote contains just 2 simple ingredients – fresh pineapple and fresh pineapple juice. That’s it! And It’s ready in 15 to 20 minutes! My grandmother cautioned me to always simmer compotes on low heat to preserve as many nutrients as possible.
NuPlus Pineapple Compote made with fresh pineapple!
Pineapple compote is perfect on pancakes, crepes, french toast, breakfast toast, waffles, ice-cream and more. So say goodbye to heavy, processed syrups, sugary jams and jellies with high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors, additives and chemicals. And say hello to a healthier you!
So here’s our Natural Earth Herbs – Sunrider NuPlus Pineapple Compote recipe!
- 3 ½ cups whole fresh pineapple (Peel, core and cube)
- 3 ½ Tbsp fresh pineapple juice
- 1 packet NuPlus Piña Banana or NuPlus Original
Make it a Super food Compote
- Place fresh pineapple cubes and pineapple juice in a small saucepan
- Bring to medium heat.
- Once mixture begins to bubble, reduce heat to low and allow to simmer. Stir
- occasionally to soften and blend the fruit, Use the back of a spoon or potato masher to
- mash the chunks while keeping some chunks in tact, as preferred, for texture.
- Let simmer over low heat for 15-17 minutes while continuing to stir and blend the pineapple chunks.
- Remove from heat and place in Mason jar or bowl and cover. Refrigerate to cool. Serve warm or cold.
Our rich, flavorful NuPlus Pineapple Compote pairs great with our Fluffy NuPlus Pina Banana Pancakes!
Our Fluffy NuPlus Piña Banana Pancakes are gluten free and easy as 1-2-3!
The problem with regular pancakes:
Most homemade pancake recipes and boxed mixes are made with processed, bleached white flour, chemicals, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, artificial sweetners, preservatives, colors, flavors and dyes. They have zero nutrition! That means they have nothing your body needs, wants or can use.
Why we only eat Sunrider inspired NuPlus Pancakes:
NuPlus Piña Banana Pancakes Super delicious Super Food!
I love NuPlus 1-2-3 pancakes because even though they only have 3 simple ingredients, they are chocked full of whole plant nutrition. NuPlus is specially formulated to preserve and enhance the “life force” and live enzymes in plants. So these pancakes, and anything else made with NuPlus, are rich in the essential nutrients your body needs at breakfast to heal your body and fuel your day. Finally fresh whole bananas and pineapples contain many compounds that foster great health – see the end of this post for more info!
The flavors are Out of Sight Delicious. NuPlus Piña Banana pairs well with the whole banana and aromatic nutmeg for a sweet, spicy tropical treat! Try topping them with my homemade NuPlus Pineapple compote for a rich sweet-tart finish.
So without further delay – Here’s our super easy 1-2-3 Recipe!
Place banana, eggs, NuPlus Piña Banana and nutmeg in a blender. Blend on medium speed until smooth.
Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Drop an ice-cream scoop portion of the batter onto the griddle and cook until edges are golden brown and top bubbles – then turn. Approximately, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
Note: If using a regular skillet or griddle, melt 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet before cooking the pancakes. Add additional butter if needed between batches, about 1 tablespoon more.

Can I make this recipe without NuPlus?
Remember, NuPlus is a concentrated Super Food. So yes, you could make these pancakes without NuPlus. However, you’d lose all the nutrition that NuPlus packs and your body needs.
Serve with my fresh, sugar free NuPlus Pineapple compote.

I love, love, love to eat really good food. Whether it’s five star dining or a neighbor’s garden party, I love to indulge in delicious food. However, I’m now on a mission to eliminate fibroids naturally. That means I am determined to live and eat as God intended. No more processed, fried, over-cooked, over-sauced, high fat, sugar dense cooking. These methods mask the natural beauty, texture and flavors of plants and herbs. They also rob our bodies of the vital nutrients God gave us to naturally nourish, heal and replenish our bodies.
So I’ve gone back to the traditions of my southern parents who lived on farms, ate very little meat and seasoned their foods with herbs, spices and extracts that they grew and knew. I do not use white flour. Instead I have found tons of healthier substitutes that my body loves. I turned to my own garden and realized that with Sunrider, I could have the best culinary experience right at my fingertips!
Here’s one of the first recipes I created about 2 years ago. I served it at a recent mid-week brunch for a few of my BFFs. (Yes, we decided to play hookie from work). I turned my backyard garden into a mini spa and we just chilled. I set up cool vaporizers all around and had Sunbreeze oil wafting through my home, garden and by the pool.
As for Brunch we dined on some of the most delightful sweet potato pancakes in the world! Yes, the sweet potatoes are from my garden. Sweet Potatoes are packed with Beta Carotene and vitamin A. They have tons of health benefits. And of course NuPlus is Sunrider’s super food!
So here’s the recipe for my Flourless NuPlus Sweet Potato Pancakes.
- 2 Packets of NuPlus Apple Cinnamon
- 1 Packet Quinary Powder
- 3/4 pound sweet potatoes
- 1 1/2 cups FLOUR SUBSTITUTES*
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 2 Large eggs (or egg whites), beaten
- 1 1/2 cups Almond, Rice or Coconut milk
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 to 2 drops of Sunrider Sunny Dew
Prep 10 m
Cook 15 m
Ready In 45 m
- Place sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan of boiling water. Allow potatoes to boil about 15 minutes. Pierce with fork – potatoes should be tender but firm. Transfer potatoes to cold water to loosen skins. Drain, remove skins and mash. Remove any strings and beat until smooth.
- In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, spice, nutmeg.
- Add 2 packs NuPlus Apple Cinnamon
- Mix mashed sweet potatoes, eggs, milk substitute and oil in a separate medium bowl. Blend sweet potato mixture into the flour mixture to form a batter.
- Add 1-2 drops of Sunny Dew to taste.
- Preheat a lightly greased griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter mixture onto the prepared griddle by heaping tablespoonfuls. Let cook until golden edges become brown and the surface begins to bubble. Turning once with a spatula.
We topped our pancakes with homemade pear preserves – my grandmother’s recipe. You can also top with fresh preserves berries, fresh apple-berry compote or molasses.
My White Flour substitutes for Perfect Pancakes:
Almond Flour (gluten free)
Buckwheat Flour (gluten and wheat-free)
Cornmeal (blue and yellow) gluten free
Quinoa Flour (gluten free) – contains twice the protein of rice or corn
