One historian says that the name “Ananas” was given to it by the “guranies” indigenous (today Paraguay) and it means: A=fruit and  NANAS= delicious, and who can argue that?.

This is a delicious dessert, that is present in almost any household in Venezuela. Easy to make. Its secret lies in using a good fresh pineapple juice as a base, the canned pineapple is a NO-NO for this recipe!!


600 gr fresh pineapple juice

25 gr sugar

40gr maizena

1 tbsp orange flower water (if you have it, otherwise you can do without)


Mix all the ingredients into a bowl, then transfer the mixture into a saucepan and bring to a boil. With a wooden spoon keep moving it, watching for the bottom of the pan as it thickens. Cook for about 10 min. Then transfer to a big bowl or smaller ones, whichever you prefer. Cover with cling film (making contact with the surface) place in the fridge. Enjoy once it has cooled down, approx. 1 hour
