Let’s Get Tropical!


image

I have a major sweet tooth, but I find myself craving a lot of fruit, especially anything tropical in the summer. I love me some mangoes, coconuts, pineapples, and lychees. Yum!

It’s technically not summer anymore, but it sure doesn’t feel like fall yet in LA. I recently tried something new and served this pineapple whip at a party we were hosting. I’m so happy it ended up a being a hit, especially since it only takes 5 minutes to make! You’ll be able to please both the health nuts and the big butts {lol} with this quick and easy recipe.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 ripe pineapple, chopped into cubes, then frozen overnight OR 16 oz. bagged frozen pineapples
  • 1 cup coconut cream {I bought a can from Trader Joe’s}
  • Optional: lightly toasted coconut flakes as a topping

Instructions:

  • Add the frozen pineapple cubes and coconut cream in a high speed blender
  • Blend until the mixture turns into a smooth and frosty thickness
  • TIP: blend and stop periodically to ensure it doesn’t turn too liquidy. You’ll also need to scoop down the pineapple from the sides of the blender.
  • Pour into dessert cups
  • Optional: top with lightly toasted coconut flakes.

Serving Size: 4
