Pineapple and Coconut Fool Recipe

1 medium pineapple, peeled cored and diced fine ( 3-4 cups)
2-3 Tbsp coconut sugar
juice of 1 small lime

1 cup whipped cream ( full fat heavy cream OR full fat coconut cream)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 tsp coconut sugar

Toasted coconut flakes - optional



In a small saucepan over medium-high heat combine the pineapple, coconut sugar and lime and simmer until slightly thickened, almost jam like. Let cool completely then chill in an airtight container. The mixture will thicken up more once chilled

When ready to serve prepare the whipped cream. Either using full fat heavy cream or coconut cream* whip until thickened, add in the vanilla and sweeten with coconut sugar until desired sweetness level is reached.

In parfait glasses or bowls layer the cream and pineapple mixture. Top with toasted coconut flakes and serve.


Recipe Notes

If using coconut milk/cream to make coconut whipped cream use FULL FAT from the can, do not use carton coconut milk. Try to find the kind without thickeners such as guar gum in it or else they wont whip and get thick. Chill in the fridge at least 24 hours. Pour off the liquid and scoop out the thick cream. Whip like you would with dairy whipping cream. It wont be as thick and fluffy, but it still works well.
