Creamy Coconut Tropical Fruit Salad


I love to use canned coconut milk for cooking, especially whenever I need to make something dairy-free. I use both the regular coconut milk in a carton as well as the canned coconut milk. Canned coconut milk is perfect for desserts, because you can scoop the creamy layer off the top and just use that in a recipe. While it's great as a fruit salad, this is also a great dessert replacement. If you let it sit in the fridge overnight, the sweetness from the fresh pineapple mixes with the semi-sweet coconut cream, and it's absolutely perfect without any added sugars. It's the perfect go-to if you're craving ice cream. In fact, you could use this same recipe in a popsicle mold for a guilt-free frozen treat. Use what you have on hand. If you don't have mangoes, add in two more bananas instead, or try it with other tropical fruits like papaya.

INGREDIENTS
  • one 14 oz. can unsweetened coconut milk
  • one fresh pineapple
  • two fresh mangos
  • 3 bananas 
  • 1 cup organic unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Peel and chop the fruit into bite-size pieces.
  2. Add the coconut milk (just the thick cream part off the top. Don't use the liquid in the bottom of the can.) *You may want to buy a few cans just in case. Sometimes during handling, the coconut milk blends together. If it isn't still separated, you won't be able to scoop the cream off the top.
  3. Combine in a medium size bowl, cover and refrigerate at least an hour. (Will thicken.)
