Pineapple Crisp with Whipped Coconut Cream

Pineapple Crisp with Whipped Coconut Cream - dairy free

 

I’m no gluten free/dairy free expert, but I’m pretty sure this dessert meets those qualifications.  Not only that, it tastes fantastic!

This is the same crisp recipe I use for Blueberry Crisp in the Slow Cooker.  This time I used pineapple instead of berries.   I made it in the oven instead of the slow cooker.  And I topped it with whipped coconut cream instead of ice cream.

The result is pretty marvelous.

The crisp topping is a nutty contrast to the sweet pineapple.  I love the texture of the coconut cream even more than regular whipped cream.  It’s a little thicker and tastes very decadent.  I bumped up the coconut flavor by adding coconut extract.  You could use vanilla extract instead if you wanted to down play the coconut taste.  This topping can be use in place of whipped cream for things like shortcake.  I can’t wait to try it with strawberries.

Coconut Cream and Chocolate Dessert

I have a new thing for black bottom desserts.  Chocolate layers are just so scrumptious.

First, there was Black Bottom Peanut Butter Pie.

And now there’s this dessert with a layer of coconut cream filling over over a chocolate cream cheese layer.

It’s a variation of a popular dessert that goes by many names.  That recipe is often made with chocolate pudding, but can also be made with lemon.  Both are wonderful.  I decided to change it up by putting the chocolate in the cream cheese layer and using coconut cream pudding.
