Twice a week I get one of the neighbor's kids off the bus and her and D do their homework together. I call it "Homework Club" just to make it sound more fun than it actually is. I always try to make them a special snack to have while they do their homework. Yesterday I had the fresh pineapple that needed to be cut and eaten before it went too far. I'm sure the pineapple alone would have been enough for the girls but I always like to have something for dipping. I was going to try to come up with something with a few things I had on hand cream cheese, s/f cool whip, coconut butter and whatever else I came up with. Well I went to the fridge and discovered that my cream cheese was expired. So I went with greek yogurt.
I am guessing at the amounts but this is what I did...
1 C greek yogurt
1/4 C coconut butter (I later found this to be completely unnecessary but it's in there anyway)
2 T cream of coconut (like for pina coladas)
I mixed all of this together in my magic bullet. It tasted ok but was kind of runny so I decided to add 1 T coconut flour. This really thickend it up and improved the coconut flavor. I put it in the fridge for about 1/2 hour to set up. Then I folded in a small container of s/f cool whip. It is really delicious and tastes great with the pineapple!
