Aloha Dip combines pineapple, coconut and ginger-it's a dip that's kinda sweet but not too sweet!
It could be called Pina Colada Dip too if you add a little rum or rum extract...
Personally, I suggest making the dip as is and pouring yourself a nice adult beverage to go with it!
This recipe came from my friend Carol - Thanks Carol!
Hope you love it if you try it!
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup coconut
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained well (important!)
1 tsp grated ginger
1/2 cup chopped nuts-optional (I did not use them, probably macadamia would be good)
Mix well, chill one hour. Serve with crackers, pretzels, carrots and celery.
- Don't be afraid to add more ginger!
- I would measure the coconut then put it into a food chopper or food processor to make it a little finer.
- Also good with bagel chips, graham crackers or vanilla wafers.
I promise a hot dip next week!
