Pinacolada popcorn

pinacolada popcorn

As the winter gusts take over I really miss the tropics.  I miss the sunshine yes the hot sweaty days. When I do think of tropics the first thing is pineapples and banana.  Living in Malaysia again spoilt me with pineapples more. I cannot miss the taste of pina colada.
The cold blend of beautiful pineapple and fresh coconut milk… A tall one with crushed ice just to make it all the more inviting.
But alas… It’s too cold, I don’t want to do anything  with ice, want to stay far away from it.  But the thought keeps coming  back.
Then it’s time to improvise.
Armed with fluffy coconut milk powder…. Anything is possible…
So we experiment popcorn,  candied pineapple and coconut-  pinacolada already.
I have made this  many times before as an easy trail mix with other dried fruits but never added the coconut powder. so this experiment is a new one.
 The sweetness of the white chocolate and the candy pineapple makes it really decadent as dessert.
The way it vanishes while watching a game on the telly,  makes me think perhaps this is a better deal than caramel popcorn. I guess we are going to repeat this for a few days… Popping  the corn and adding chocolate, coconut powder and pineapple… And have with a warm cup of tea.
How about you??
