Best Pina Colada Salad

Anyone planning a trip to Hawaii in the immediate or very near future? Because I’m small and quite flexible, I’m positive I could fit in your suitcase. If that won’t work for you (can’t imagine why it wouldn’t….) a gift of fresh pineapple from the islands will suffice. My parents went to Maui a couple of times when I was younger and brought back the most incredible pineapple. You don’t know a good pineapple til you’ve had one from Hawaii. They grow em better there. Meaning: they grow them there, period.

1 (20 ounce) cans crushed pineapple in juice
1 (3 ounce) packages instant coconut cream pudding mix
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 (8 ounce) containers Cool Whip
3 ounces cream cheese
1/3 cup white sugar

Mix crushed pineapple with juice, instant pudding and coconut.
Fold in Cool Whip.
Cream together cream cheese and sugar in separate bowl.
Then fold into other mixture; chill
