  • ½ cup unsalted raw cashews

  • ¾ cup coconut milk

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 1 ½ cups flaked coconut

  • 1 fresh pineapple, peeled and cut into cubes

  • 1 fresh mango, peeled and cut into cubes

  1. Soak cashews in a bowl of water for 1 to 2 hours; drain.

  2. Blend soaked cashews, coconut milk, honey, and coconut oil in a blender until dip is smooth. Transfer dip to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate.

  3. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Spread flaked coconut onto a baking sheet.

  4. Broil coconut in the preheated oven, watching the whole time, until coconut is toasted, 10 seconds to 1 minute. Remove baking sheet from oven and cool coconut.

  5. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Thread pineapple and mango onto skewers.

  6. Place skewers onto the preheated grill; cook, turning once, about 1 minute per side.
