How To Make drink essentials: mango pineapple delight

    Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).

    Chef’s Note: Take a can of coconut cream and place it in the refrigerator, preferable overnight. When you open the can, the cream will have solidified and separated from the liquid. Drain off the liquid, and reserve the solidified cream. That’s what I want you to use in this recipe.
  • 4
    Place all the ingredients into a blender.
  • 5
    Blend until smooth.

    Chef's Note: If you want to make this an "adult" beverage, you could add about 6 ounces of good rum.
