Ingredients

  • 1 (2 pound) pineapple, halved
  • 3/8 cup plus 1 tablespoon cold water

  • 1/4 cup Kirsch
  • 3 drops green food coloring

  • 1/4-ounce packet of gelatin
  • 1 banana, peeled and quartered lengthwise
  • 1/8 cup flaked almonds
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup coconut flakes

Scoop out pineapple flesh and freeze shells. Discard core. Blend flesh with 1/4 cup water. Pour into saucepan and cook over medium heat. Add lime juice and bring to boil. Boil for 2 minutes.

Combine gelatin and 1 tablespoon water. Dissolve this in pot with remaining water, over low heat. Add Kirsch and food coloring. Add to pineapple mixture and chill.
