A wonderful combination of some of my favourite dessert ingredients: pineapple, cream cheese, whipped cream, bananas, coconut, sugar. Quick, rich, delicious, not too sweet, and no baking! You could add some medium or fine shredded coconut (about 1/4 c.) to the graham cracker mixture, and sprinkle some on top. If you don't have (or don't like) coconut milk, you could omit it, and just add about 1/4 c. milk to the cream cheese mixture.
