It’s hot outside, so cool off with this frozen tropical treat! A cream cake that tastes like a piña colada, but so much healthier!



    • 3/4 cup rolled oats
    • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
    • 9 medjool dates (about 2/3 cup)
    • 2 Tbs coconut oil, melted
    • 1 Tbs chia seeds + 2 Tbs warm water
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • Pinch pink salt


    • 2 cans coconut milk, solid cream only (refrigerated overnight), divided
    • 1 medium zucchini, peeled, grated & squeezed dry (scant 1 cup)
    • 1 pineapple (I used about 3 cups, divided)
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and warm
    • 2 Tbs maple syrup
    • 1 Tbs raw or coconut sugar, to taste
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 tsp coconut extract
    • Dash Himilayan pink salt
    • Squeeze of lime
    • Cherries for garnish


    1. To make the crust:
    2. Stir together chia seeds and water in a small bowl and set aside.
    3. Blend dates in food processor to break them up. Add chia mixture and remaining ingredients and pulse until sticky crumbles form.
    4. Press firmly into parchment-lined 7" spring-form pan.
    5. To make the filling:
    6. Blend 1 1/2 cups pineapple and zucchini in food processor. Scrape down sides. Scoop out the solid cream from 1 can of coconut cream, plus 1/3 cup of a second can (reserve the water for another use), and add in the remaining ingredients. Blend well.
    7. Pour 3/4 of filling into crust. Place a layer of pineapple chunks on top of the cake (up against the edge, too). Set in freezer.
    8. Add a big handful of pineapple (roughly 1 cup) to the food processor and blend again. Pour on top of cake.
    9. Garnish with thinly cut pineapple and and set back in freezer for 3 hours to harden.
    10. To make the whip cream:
    11. Use the leftover coconut cream (about 2/3 cup). Scoop into a bowl and whip with a hand mixer until fluffy. Add sweetener and vanilla to taste. (I used about 1 Tbs maple syrup and 1 tsp vanilla)
    12. Spread whipped cream on top of cake with a spatula. Garnish with cherries or extra pineapple. Enjoy!
