Tropical Celery BoatsPrint Recipe
- 4 stalks of celery
- 3 tablespoons of soft cream cheese
- 1 small can of crushed pineapple
Have mom or an adult open the can of crushed pineapple. The edges of the lid will be sharp, so let an adult handle it. Use a small strainer or a big slotted spoon to strain the juice into a cup.
Select 4 big stalks of celery from the outside of the bunch. Wash them and trim off the leafy tops and the wide bottom part. Cut the celery sticks in half and put them on a plate. You'll see that the celery has a "C" shape - just perfect for putting spreads inside.
Put the cream cheese in bowl and add the pineapple.
Take a spoon and mix the pineapple into the cream cheese. It may be a little hard at first. Mix until the bits of yellow pineapple are everywhere in the cream cheese.
Hold the celery so that the open part of the celery's "C" shape is facing up.
Using a butter knife, spread the cream cheese mix into the hollow part of the "C."
We finished off our Tropical Celery Boats with paper umbrellas.
