1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (10-oz.) bag sweetened coconut flakes

How to Make Fried Pineapple Rings with Creamy Coconut Dipping Sauce
Soak the Pineapple: Place the pineapple rings in a medium bowl and cover them with pineapple juice. Let them soak for at least 1 hour. After soaking, drain and pat them dry with paper towels.
Prepare the Coating: Set up your coating station with three shallow bowls. Place flour in one bowl, sweetened coconut flakes in another, and whisk together the eggs and coconut milk in the third bowl.
Coat the Pineapple: Dip each pineapple ring first in the flour, then in the egg mixture, and finally in the coconut flakes. Press the coconut flakes onto the rings to ensure they stick well.
Fry the Pineapple: Heat vegetable oil in a deep pot to 350°F (175°C). Fry the coated pineapple rings until they are golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Once fried, drain the rings on paper towels.
Make the Dipping Sauce: In a bowl, mix the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract and add coconut milk a little at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
Helpful Tips
Ensure the oil is hot enough before you start frying to prevent the pineapple from absorbing too much oil.
Adjust the thickness of your dipping sauce with additional coconut milk to suit your preference for creaminess.
Cooking Tips
Using a thermometer helps maintain the correct oil temperature for perfect frying.
For extra crunch, you can double coat the pineapple rings by repeating the flour and coconut steps.
Enjoy these tropical fried pineapple rings with a creamy coconut dipping sauce for a delightful treat!
