Paula G says, "There is a taste of the tropics in this lightly sweet , no bake delight. A great dessert to serve on a warm summer day." Her Recipe posted in Food.com.
This is my take on this recipe which is a little different- but the taste is the same.

This was so easy and tasty that I had 2 pieces!
A new family favorite.
