Pure goodness fruit stacks with coconut cream
  • 1
    Refrigerate cans of coconut cream standing upright overnight.

    Make coconut cream: Carefully remove lid, scoop the solid top from coconut cream into a small bowl of an electric mixer. Reserve remaining liquid in can for another use. Beat coconut cream until medium peaks form.
  • 3
    Cut rockmelon, honeydew and watermelon crossways into 4cm thick slices. Using a 4.5cm round cutter, cut rounds from fruit slices; you should get 6 rounds from each fruit.
