15 Crushed Pineapple Substitutes

There are a few substitutes for crushed pineapple, but they're not all great.
If you're looking for a substitute that will give your dish the same flavor and texture as pineapple, then you're going to want to try a combination of diced apple and apricot preserves. You can substitute these for half of the crushed pineapple. This mixture will give your dish a similar texture and consistency, but it won't have quite the same taste or color as crushed pineapple.
Another option is using canned unsweetened peach slices in place of crushed pineapple. The texture and consistency are very similar between these two ingredients, so they're a good substitute if you're trying to create something similar to a fruit salad or fruit pie filling. However, peaches don't have quite as much flavor as pineapples do, so this substitution won't give your recipe quite as much flavor or sweetness as crushed pineapple does.
