It’s been a long week my friends. Still, I don’t think I’ve recovered from vacation withdrawals yet. So today I’m rounding up 20 tropical recipes that will make you want to pack your bag and jet off to the islands. Or maybe it will be easier to make one of these and enjoy a tropical staycation this weekend. ????

  1. These Coconut Mango Popsicles, that Maryanne at The Little Epicurean made, look perfect for the upcoming hot summer days. And the promise of a 10-minute vacation is certainly tempting.

  3. I finally tried Dole Whip while we were in Maui. It was sort of like a tangy refreshing soft serve. I heard so much about it since we live right next to Disneyland, but of course I’m not about to pay hundreds of dollar to go to Disneyland just for some Dole Whip. Lucky for us, Jessica from Smart Nutrition made this awesome 3 ingredient Pineapple Dole Whip.

  14. I was slightly disappointed with the selection of Malasadas available to me while I was in Maui. But I’m guessing I just haven’t found the best on Maui yet. Malasada is basically fried dough, rolled in sugar or filled with all sort of wonderful fillings like haupia or passion fruit curd. Like the one Jen from Use Real Butter made here! I love her blog’s name cuz buttah is your friend when you bake.
