Summer is here, and it's time for cool treats. One of my favorite ways to dress up ice cream is to puree some fruit and turn it into a sundae! Any fruit can work beautifully in this. Try pureed peaches with vanilla ice cream or raspberries with chocolate. Add spices or liqueurs to jazz things up.
Dairy-Free Fruit Sundae
(Makes 4 Sundaes)Ingredients:
1 cup hulled strawberries
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 pint strawberry coconut milk ice cream (or another flavor)
1/4 cup coconut flakes
In a blender, puree strawberries and pineapple. (Or use other fruit of your choosing.)
In a dry skillet over medium heat, toss coconut flakes until very lightly toasted, approximately one or two minutes.
In a glass or dessert dish, spread a layer of sauce, add a couple of scoops of ice cream, and top with flaked coconut.
