This is a smooth, creamy dessert that also tastes delicious on scones or as a dip for fruit kabobs.
Combine in a saucepan:
1 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup milk (2 percent or whole)
1/2 cup sugar
Warm on medium heat until sugar dissolves.
1 cup Pina Colada yogurt (8 ozs.)
1 cup light sour cream
1/2 teaspoon pineapple flavoring (optional)
Pour into 6 glass goblets or dessert dishes. Chill one hour or until thickened. Dessert will resemble the consistency of yogurt. Top with toasted coconut flakes and a leaf of fresh pineapple-mint. Serve with a crisp cookie and a small fruit kabob made with fresh pineapple and other tropical fruits threaded on a fancy pick.
Variations: Substitute strawberry or lemon yogurt for the Pina Colada yogurt. For the lemon yogurt, add 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind.
