Caramelized Pineapple Sundaes With Coconut

Caramelized Pineapple Sundaes With Coconut created by teresas

This dessert treat uses fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt, but you could substitute vanilla ice cream if you prefer. The flavors of coconut and the carmelized pineapple create a delicious topping. This is best when fresh pineapple is used. Sometimes you can find already peeled and cored pineapple in the produce department. From Food & Wine.

    What a great dessert! It was simple, tasted good, and was a hit at my house. We had this over French Vanilla ice cream for a heavenly treat. Thanks for sharing, Kathy. Made for CQ3 - Bahamas.
