    Kiwi fruit

    kee-wee froot

    The brown and hairy exterior of this egg-shaped fruit doesn't look promising, but inside it…

  • 400g can pineapple chunks



    With its tuft of spiky, dusty green leaves and cross-hatched, golden orange skin, the pineapple…


  1. Dissolve the coconut cream in 50ml boiling water, then leave to cool. Spoon the quark or yogurt into a mixing bowl, then stir in the icing sugar and vanilla. Combine with the coconut mix, then spoon into individual glasses. Chill until ready to serve.

  2. Peel and chop the kiwi fruit into small pieces. Drain the pineapple, then chop the chunks into small pieces. Mix the fruit together, then spoon over the top of the coconut creams to serve.

Such an easy throw together dessert. I didn't use coconut cream but rather thick coconut milk and mixed this with the yoghurt. I changed the quantities also to get a more coconutty flavor, so can't say I followed the recipe exactly. The other half loved it and is normally put off by fruit on a pud!

I think the writer of this recipe must be confusing creamed coconut with coconut cream. These are two different products. Coconut cream is of a pouring consistency similar to that of dairy cream and comes in a packet, the corner of which can be snipped when you're ready to pour. The product that comes in sachets, usually four to a packet, and which is hard until dissolved in a liquid, is called creamed coconut and, from the context, it looks as if that is what is meant to be used here.

Made this for a friend's birthday bash and put in little cups, worked a treat. I could not get powdered coconut cream (another food item 'missing' in Brisbane!!) but used the powdered coconut milk instead, I don't thing it was as tasty but still got wonderful feedback, would make again as so easy.
