How much do you love ice cream, chocolate ice cream but cannot eat dairy? I do, I love chocolate and ice cream ... and it is probably better for me to not have dairy. Coconut milk is a great alternative to dairy, it's rich, creamy and velvety when made into an ice cream!
When you are eating a hot dish such as a jerk marinade, you need a cooling dish to counter the heat. I like coconut rice with a sweet element like the mango, I dressed with with a lime vinaigrette ~ it was just the right amount of sweet, tang and crunch to go with the fish.
How about a crispy meringue layer cake, stuffed with blackberry and dried cherry compote and gussied up with coconut whipped cream? It could be sanctioned, if you either left off the coconut whipped cream or seriously limited it ... your choice! Either way ~ it's a gorgeous cake with lots of great flavor and fun, won't last long!
Tropical Fruit Salad is a great way to enjoy the sweetness of fruit and have a beautiful dessert after a perfectly sanctioned meal! I made this one a little extra special by taking some extra time and cutting the fruit into an unusual presentation. It was fun and made for a much more elegant dessert.
