How to Make Vegan Pineapple Chocolate Donuts
We’re not messing around when it comes to dessert. It’s summer time, and in Canada that means it’s short and sweet so to take advantage the last place you want to be is stuck in the kitchen. To make these vegan pineapple chocolate donuts, start by melting your chocolate in the microwave with some coconut oil. While that’s melting, get your station ready. Have your sliced pineapple nearby, your bowl of melted chocolate, your tajin, fleur de sel and crushed toasted cashews.
Here are the steps:
Use a fork to dip the pineapple slice into melted chocolate.
Lay it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Sprinkle the pineapple slice with Tajin, crushed cashews and fleur de sel.
Repeat with the remaining pineapple slices.
Place the baking sheet in the freezer for five to ten minutes until the chocolate hardens.
Get in there!
Why Your Pineapple Donuts NEED Tajin
Once I discovered that people were putting Tajin spice on so many fruits, I had to get on board and even used it on my popular watermelon fries. So I didn’t pull any punches with these pineapple chocolate donuts, so I’m sprinkling a generous amount on top to add a nice little kick.
How to Make this Summer Treat EVEN FASTER
Need a shortcut to this already simple recipe? Instead of buying a whole pineapple at the store, look for a pineapple that has already been cored and peeled. You’ll pay a bit more for that, but in the name of getting dessert in your mouth ASAP, you might not care!
