Well the question is…..do you like piña coladas? Well I do, so the answer was quite clear really nothing goes together like Forest and Jenny like Pineapple’s and Coconut’s. This doesn’t involve baking, you just need a good food processor. It is gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, grain free, think this also falls under Paleo. Perfect for our climate at the moment when it’s too stinking hot and humid to put the oven on. Enjoy 🙂
for the base:
1 cup dried dates
1 packed and heaped cup Almond meal
1tbs coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 425g pineapple pieces ( no added sugar)
2 cups desiccated coconut
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tbs of juice from the can
How to do it:
For the base:
whiz up the dates and almond meal until the dates are broken down. Then add the coconut oil and vanilla, and press firmly into a lined slice tin about 25cm by 15cm.
For the filling: Place all ingredients in the food processer and blend until silky smooth (should only take a minute or two). Pour on top of the base and leave to set in the fridge for a few hours before slicing.
If you feel your filling mixture is too dry you can add a tbs of juice more from the can or a tbs of coconut milk is great too.
