*You can add various fruits as you like (fresh strawberries, bananas, raspberries, etc.

Soften gelatin in water. Let mixture stand 5 minutes. Drain pineapple and reserve juice; add enough water to juice to make 1 cup. Heat juice ’til boiling, add gelatin mixture. Stir ’til dissolved. Stir in sugar, lemon juice and cream cheese using a wire wisk to blend. Chill until gelatin is partially set. Then stir in fruits and coconut. Place either in a mold or desired dish and refrigerate ’til set.
