This luscious Iced Coconut Cream with Grilled Pineapple is a decadent dessert!
I love these tropical easy desserts to make me feel like my family is on vacation while staying at home on the weekends. It is cool and refreshing and the little umbrellas make my kids happy.
When I think of tropical, I think of citrus, including oranges, pineapples, limes, coconut, and maybe some rum. I used rum extract in this recipe but you could add a splash of real rum if you choose.
Easy desserts are my favorite recipes to create. They are usually quick to make and don’t require too many ingredients. So I can get in and out of the kitchen fast.
This is a great recipe to use if you have an ice cream maker because the kids can participate. If you don’t have an ice cream maker you can still create this recipe using a store bought coconut cream, or vanilla flavor.
You can also grill up your pineapple while you are barbecuing dinner at the same time.
I shared one of my tropical desserts with you, what dessert do you enjoy eating in the summertime?
