Creamy Pineapple Coconut Frozen Dessert

Refreshing, delicious and creamy pineapple coconut frozen dessert.

So today’s post started with the genuine intention to make a smoothie. I’ve been obsessed with smoothies, and I’ve been trying different variations that work best. Smoothies are a great way to add some fruit and veggies to your diet.

My daughter has always loved eating fruits and vegetables, and I’ve never had a to force her to eat them (except for zucchini, but I’m working on that). To keep things interesting I constantly try different recipes and ask for her opinion which helps to keep her curious and even passionate about eating healthy.

Although she was a bit skeptical with the almond butter hot chocolate smoothie, I made last week, once she tried it, she asked for more! And I’ve grown to realize that if something is kid approved, it means it’s good!

So this week I’m trying something different. Kid-approved, of course! I bought some frozen raw coconut, and I had the hardest time trying to figure out if I should use it in a smoothie or some type of a dessert. I started experimenting with the intention to make a coconut smoothie. Instead, it turned out to be this delicious, creamy pineapple coconut frozen dessert.

I have a huge sweet tooth, so the first couple versions I tried were not as sweet as I would have liked them to be. After adding some chia seeds, a little bit of honey and blueberries on top it was perfect.

This recipe makes about 3 to 4 servings, so if you are making it for yourself, cut everything in half.

    wow, I’ve never seen frozen coconut in the store before (I guess I’ve never really looked for it), I will have to make this for my husband, I love coconut and he’s also been obsessed with smoothies lately. 🙂

      You can also use coconut milk instead of frozen coconut, switch the milk with greek yogurt and add some shredded coconut. Yum! 🙂
