- 1 can Del Monte Pineapple Slices or Chunks in Juice (400 gr)
- 1 tbsp ghee or butter
- 100 g desiccated coconut
- 125 g milk powder
- 80 g caster sugar

Drain the pineapple slices, chop into chunks, and place in a food processor. Mix until smooth and reduced to a paste.
Heat the ghee in a pan over medium-low heat, add the pineapple puree and cook for 1-2 minutes. Make sure you do not burn the puree.
Add the desiccated coconut and sugar, and mix well. Cook for a further 2 minutes on low heat.
Add the milk powder, cardamom powder and ground almonds, and stir well.
Continue to cook for another 2 minutes, or until the mixture becomes thick. Transfer into a bowl and allow to cool in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Using your hands make small golf-sized balls. Roll into extra dessicated coconut, arrange on a serving plate and serve.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
