Fresh & Healthy: Mango & Pineapple “Dessert”

As hard as I try, I cannot seem to break my “bad” habit of wanting a little something sweet after every meal.   I usually find myself reaching for some chocolate (often something more) after most meals.  My little one seems to be following in my footsteps and is usually found begging for a sweet treat after dinner.

This simple concoction – totally stolen from my friend Suzanne – satisfies our worst post-meal sugar cravings.  Diced mango and pineapple topped with toasted coconut and slivered almonds – where have you been all my life?  Bordering on genius and totally satisfying, post a “heavy” curry meal (which is a regular occurrence at our house).  A taste of the tropics and if you “pretend” hard enough, it transports you to a vacation somewhere warm and beach-y.  A riff on our Coconut Mango Pancakes, but so much better for you.

I am sort of annoyed at myself for not “inventing” this myself, in spite of being an un-enthusiastic fruit eater.  This, however, is fruit that I can get excited about.

Thanks Suzanne for bringing this “dessert” to our “little lunch porch party”, even though you weren’t supposed to bring anything. 🙂
