Quick Tropical Piña Colada Pudding

I was cleaning out the fridge the other day and found a lonely cup of crushed pineapple that needed using up.  I turned it into the star of a 'doctored up' instant pudding dessert.  The pudding was a lovely soft-set texture that we really liked.  We all enjoyed the 'tropical island' flavor combo of the pineapple, coconut and banana.  I just love getting creative with leftovers, especially when they turn out tasting this good ~ Enjoy!
