Creamy Pineapple Custard Cake

My dear friend Ingrid was coming for dinner and I had about 15 minutes to prepare something for dessert. A poor little pineapple was sitting on the table, begging to be used. I prepared the dessert without cashews, so it was nut free, but it did need to be frozen. By the time we served it, it was soft and creamy, like a frozen custard. Both W and Ingrid LOVED this dessert. Next time, I'd add some cashews, to make it more like a "cheesecake" consistency, but the flavor was fabulous!

Note - Make this nut free by adding more ground chia and freezing. It will need to be served frozen. If you add cashews, the dessert can stand up and be cut without freezing.

Creamy Pineapple Custard Cake

3 - 4 cups ripe pineapple, chopped
1 cup fresh coconut meat (from young Thai coconut - or use 1/2 dried coconut) - I have not tried this, so you have to play around with amount.

2 Tablespoons ground *chia seeds (I used WHITE chia seeds - keeps nicer color)
2 Tablespoons *shredded coconut
2 medjool dates, pitted and chopped
1 drop Medicine Flower Rum Extract (or 1/4 teaspoon liquid extract)
3/4 teaspoon vanilla (2 drops **Medicine Flower Vanilla Extract)
