Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8
  • 1 pineapple, sliced into ½ rounds, grilled
  • 14 ounces coconut, toasted
  • Angel food cake, cubed into ½ inch squares
  • 6 ounces macadamia nuts
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip
  1. First, preheat your grill. When it is ready, place the pineapple rings on the grates and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and set aside to cool. Then, cut the pineapple into 1 inch slices.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the coconut in a thin layer on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, stirring every few minutes until the coconut turns golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  3. To create the parfaits, layer the ingredients as follows: add a few cubes of angel food cake, top with a sprinkle of toasted coconut and macadamia nuts, add some pineapple slices, and then top with a dollop of Cool Whip. Repeat with a second layer, then add a sprinkle of toasted coconut on top for garnish. Serve, and enjoy!
