Homemade Monkey Butter

This is a super interesting dessert recipe. Although it seems easy at first sight, I had to do it again twice in order to get the quantities below. It can also be served as a jam, or a delicious vegetarian spread.

It's very fragrant and tasty, children will definitely like it too.

a 375-400g tin, or fresh pineapple

Blending the mixture two times to make sure we get the finest puree was my idea.

Allow the cream to cool properly.

You'll notice that it's thicker and denser when it's cooled, and this is how we liked it more.
