1 (20 ounce) can unsweetened crushed pineapple
2 envelopes unflavored gelatine
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup cream of coconut
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup lemon-lime soda
3/4 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
Pineapple chunks and shredded coconut, optional
Drain pineapple; reserve juice; set the pineapple aside.
In saucepan, sprinkle gelatine over cold water; let stand 1 min. Cook and stir over low heat until gelatine is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cream of coconut, sour cream, lemon-lime soda and reserved pineapple juice. Transfer to a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
Fold in flaked coconut, nuts and reserved pineapple. Pour into a 6-cup ring mold coated with nonstick spray. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm.
To serve, unmold onto a platter. Fill the center with pineapple chunk and coconut if desired.
