Pineapple with vegan cream

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Pineapple with vegan cream is a very easy, fresh and elegant recipe. Juicy slices of pineapple blend with the gentle sweetness and lightness of vegan cream. The coconut exalts the exotic flavors of a typically summer recipe, ideal for dessert or snack. The crunchy roasted almonds blend with the softness of the rest of the ingredients. The secret of the recipe is the quality ingredients. Prefer fresh pineapple to canned pineapple.
