I’m still in the mood for some tropical, Maui flavors since our trip. Pineapple and Coconut are the perfect flavor combination. I put the taste of a Pina Colada into a light, cool, super easy dessert.
Pina Colada Frozen Yogurt
16 oz. container of vanilla greek yogurt
1 cup of crushed pineapple (drained)
1 cup of sweetened coconut (toasted)
optional 1-2 tsp. coconut essence or flavoring
Drain the liquid off a can of crushed pineapple. Spread out the coconut on a cookie sheet and put in an oven at 350 F for about 5 mins or until the coconut is just golden brown. In a bowl combine all the ingredients, then place in an ice cream machine and freeze according to the direction of your machine. Serve right away. You can place it in the freezer for later, but it will be very hard to scoop.
We just finished VBS at my parent’s church in Northern Cal yesterday. It’s been a long week of painting sets, decorating, bible story telling and kids, kids, kids! I’m pooped. Today I’m hoping for some peace and quiet and maybe I’ll get to pick some blackberries or visit a thrift store or two.
