Margarita's International Recipes



I will confess that this dessert didn't sound that appealing from the get go. However, I was hopeful. It seems popular enough in Gambia, and there must be a reason for that, right? Well, if there is, I haven't found it.

It basically tastes exactly like you would expect it to: like yogurt with pineapple, only a bit more sour.



  • 2 cups cooked couscous
  • 1 15oz can pineapple chunks
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • a dash of nutmeg
  • sugar, to taste


Mix all ingredients together.
