  • I can't wait to make this, love anything with coconut in and even better when berries are added. Sounds divine.


  • Sounds delish! Can't wait to try it. Have to invent a special occasion just to do this.

  • This is very similar to one I make without the fruit on top and using Fruit Mince instead of jam. So will be yummy!

  • I made this recipe tonight and it was very nice!!! I wasn't sure what I would think of the coconut but it tasted great in the dish. I added some zest of a lemon because I like the taste with blueberries and berries. This was quick to make and the family enjoyed it so I will be making it again!!!


  • Hi Helen, that's great to hear! Thanks for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed this recipe. Thanks, Jenna - Tui Team


  • thanks so much, now I have a great recipe to use all my frozen blueberries. they did so well this year as we covered them up with frost cloth and the birds can't get them.


  • This sounds tasty, however, I'll leave out the nasty coconut, so everyone can enjoy it.


  • Hi Sharron, you're welcome! That's fantastic you have had a successful crop of blueberries this season, well done. Thanks for your feedback ^Tui Team
