About this recipe: A cream based fruity dessert, which is super-easy to make. Orzo or risotto rice, pineapple, mandarins and coconut are mixed with a sweetened whipped cream. For best taste, the dessert needs to chill for at least 8 hours.


Serves: 16 

  • 225g uncooked orzo pasta or risotto rice
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (432g) tin pineapple chunks, drained with juice reserved
  • 1 (300g) tin mandarin orange segments, drained
  • 75g desiccated coconut
  • 750ml double cream, whipped

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain, transfer to a large bowl and cool.
  2. Whisk the sugar, eggs, flour, salt and reserved pineapple juice together in a saucepan until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture thickens. Pour over cooled pasta and toss to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours.
  3. Stir the pineapple chunks and mandarin oranges into the pasta mixture. Mix in the coconut if desired. Stir in whipped cream until well blended. Chill until serving.
