It may feel like 108 outside but I am not letting it spoil my mood!
I am definitely not a hot weather loving girl so I decided to make the most of it by making the family a tropics inspired dinner and oh my word did it turn out delicious!!!
For dinner I started out with this recipe but I made added a key ingredient- Cream of Coconut!
This lovely little can makes all the difference, it is sweet like the inside of an Almond Joy candybar… yummy!
I added the cream of coconut with the egg and coconut milk mixture. I also mixed a little in my sweet chile dipping sauce, which was also delicious.
I paired this chicken with some rice and the meal was set.
Finally, for dessert I made a tropical smoothie using frozen pineapple (I had cut up and frozen myself), coconut milk,
and more cream of coconut (about 1/4 cup). It was good enough that the girls were fighting over who got the last bits!
All in all a wonderful meal that will definitely be repeated!
What’s your favorite hot weather fare?
