Today I will share with you the perfect recipe for a quick, healthy, and satisfying sweet treat: Caramelised Pineapple.
It is a dessert with exotic flavours and I like to serve it with coconut yogurt to keep it low fodmap (dairy-free and vegan)! The coconut yogurt enhances the tropical feel of it. In fact, if you close your eyes, you could even imagine yourself on a beach enjoying a Mojito (that’s the mint!).
Caramelised pineapple was in fact on the menu of all the hotels we visited in French Polynesia, both in the Society Islands and the Tuamotu Islands. Pineapple, coconut, and vanilla are all staples of those beautiful islands. I guess that’s why I always think of turquoise waters and white sandy beaches while I eat it.
If you prefer, you can serve this Caramelised Pineapple with vanilla ice cream instead of coconut yogurt or plain yogurt. It would still taste so good!
