       1 tb Unflavored gelatin (1pkg)
     1/2 c  Pineapple juice, unsweetened
       1 ts Coconut or almond extract
     1/2 c  Pineapple chunks
       1 c  2% cottage cheese
       1 ts Powdered sugartwin sweetener
       1 pk Whipped topping mix (2c size
     1/2 c  2% milk
       2 ts Coconut, toasted or coloured
  
   To colour coconut, put a small drop of food colouring
   in a saucer and stir the coconut around in it or brown
   slightly in a non-stick pan.
   
   Sprinkle gelatin over pineapple juice in a small
   saucepan, let stand 5 min to soften.  Add coconut
   extract.  Heat just until gelatin melts.  Cool to room
   temperature.  Pour into large mixing bowl.
   
   Place pineapple chunks, cottage cheese and sweetener
   in food processor. Puree.  Mix into gelatin mixture.
   
   Combine whipped topping mix and milk.  Beat until
   stiff peaks form.  Fold into gelatin mixture.  Pour
   into 4 cup bowl or individual serving dish. Sprinkle
   with toasted coconut.  MY WAY - divide into 8 stem
   glasses or fancy little dessert dishes and top each
   with a piece of cherry.  Chill at least 2 hours before
   serving.
