Pina Colada Pie

 

Its summer and time to break out the “umbrella” drinks. One of my favorites is the classic pina colada. We regularly make coconut lime sorbet at the Inn so we always have a couple of cans of cream of (Coco Lopez) in the pantry. 

 

We were looking for a different dessert for some regular guests and my sous chef Jeffrey came up with the idea of making a pie with the cream of coco some pineapple and shredded coconut. Incorporating my favorite things, ease of preparation and minimal ingredients, I think you’ll enjoy making it but mostly eating it. Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you at the Inn soon. 

 

To good times with great food!
