Fruit for dessert has always been a favorite, and the caramelization of the pineapple combined with passion fruit reminds me of my home in Australia. Served with a scoop of ice cream, this is an easy, but restaurant-worthy dessert! The pineapple is drizzled with an easy caramel made from sugar and coconut cream. Any leftover sauce can be stored in the refrigerator and used to sweeten up everything from breakfast pancakes to that midnight snack scoop of ice cream.View This Recipe
