This side dish is a little different and if I hadn’t tasted it, it might look a little….um…interesting to me. Can I just tell you that it was SO GOOD!!!
We go to dinner about every other Sunday at my grandparent’s house. Sunday dinner with my extended family has been a tradition since I was young, and something my whole family missed a lot when we moved to Texas when I was in 6th grade. It was no nice when I came back to Utah to go to college because even though my family still lived in Texas, I got to go to Sunday dinner at my grandparents house and have a piece of home with me. This is still one of my favorite things to do and something I look forward to literally all week.
A few weeks ago my mom made this delicious carrot side dish that is healthy but tasted like dessert! I’m not kidding. I don’t have an exact recipe because she just threw it together. This side dish is very forgiving though, and I don’t think you could go wrong with the amounts of each ingredient you put in. You can customize it based on the amount of people you are feeding.
What you’ll need:
Shredded sweetened coconut
Crushed pineapple (drain it first and add a little bit of the juice to the mix at the end)
Pina colada-flavored yogurt
Mix in the desired amount of each ingredient and you have yourself a delicious tropical-tasting side dish. This is a perfect side dish for Easter this Sunday, or any time! The next time I’m craving something sweet but want to stick with a healthier option, I think I’ll make this as a snack too.
