Serves 4
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Active time: 20 minutes


  • • 1 small (160 ml) can of coconut milk
  • • 2 Tbsp Malibu liqueur
  • • 2 eggs
  • • 8 thick slices of gluten free bread (we recommend Pikanik honey sandwich bread)
  • • 1 Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil (divided)
  • • 2 cups fresh pineapple, cut into 1/2” pieces
  • • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • • So Delicious CoCo Whip


  1. Mix coconut milk, Malibu and eggs in a bowl - beat well until fully combined.
  2. Dry fresh pineapple on paper towel. Sprinkle with sugar. Place pineapple in a pan on the stove, medium high heat. Allow pineapple to caramelize, turning occasionally to ensure it browns well. Once browned, add pineapple juice and turn down to medium-low heat allowing the juice to reduce down until it’s reduced by half.
  3. In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil. Dip sliced bread into the coconut milk mixture until well coated, hold up allowing excess liquid to drain, and place in the hot coconut oil. Cook for a few minutes per side, until it’s golden brown on both sides. Add more coconut oil as needed for additional slices.
  4. Place french toast on a plate, top with pineapple, add a generous dollop of Coco Whip and drizzle the pineapple juice reduction on top.
