This is truly a refreshing dessert! The prep time noted is just an estimate. It is best if chilled for at least a few hours or even overnight but it can be hard to wait that long. I know I couldn't! Come enjoy the flavor of the islands!

  2. FILLING: In a bowl combine cream cheese, 4 T. guava concentrate (thawed) and sifted confectioners sugar.
  3. In another bowl, whip the cream if you're using heavy whipping cream and fold into cream cheese mixture. Spoon into cooled crust and chill for up to an hour.
