It will be 7 years this April since I quit smoking, so since then I've been working on retraining my palate to recognize and appreciate subtle flavors.

As you mentioned, the pineapple, yogurt, cardamon and strawberries sound great, but with all of the sweetness from the pineapple and strawberries, I wouldn't add the sugar. Besides making it overly sweet and adding calories, it would, for my taste, mute or hide the other more complex flavors.

My grandson, a teenager, I don't believe has any tastebuds. For him, everything must be extreme... either extremely sweet or extremely sour. Anything else is "boring!" (sigh!)

The scientists say that some people actually have more taste buds than others, and I believe that. I can taste subtle differences that my husband doesn't notice.
Teenagers also eat so fast, they don't taste half of what they swallow.

I would be very happy with just the pineapple chunks and the yogurt!

I seem to recall that pineapple has an enzime which turns yogurt soupy unless you heat it up for a few minutes. Anyone recall how hot it needs to get ?? Gage
