Variations & Tips
This Hawaiian Pineapple Coconut Fluff is delightful as is, but don’t hesitate to make it your own! Try adding different types of nuts for a change in texture, or mix in some maraschino cherries for a pop of color and sweetness. For a richer flavor, replace half of the whipped topping with Greek yogurt. If you’re feeling extra tropical, mix in some diced mango or papaya for an additional layer of fruity goodness.
