Picnic time!... Pina colada jello

It's picnic season.  And we all get invited to them and have to bring a dish.  Something easy, not too heavy, something everyone likes.  Well, how about jello?  My aunt is really the queen of jello, but I beat her to this recipe.  (Although, I'm sure she'll have to try it at some point.)

I'm headed to a picnic tomorrow and don't have time to really make a whole lot tomorrow.  So I'm bringing pina colada jello.  Try it... maybe you'll bring it to your next picnic.  If you do, will you invite me too?

Pina colada flavored jello (it's a seasonal one I'm sure), prepared
1 can pineapple, drained really well
1 tub whipped cream
1/2 c toasted coconut

Make the jello according to package directions. Put it in a 10x7 pan or medium serving bowl.  Let sit in the fridge for 1 hour.

Add the drained pineapple and let sit in the fridge until set.

Top with coolwhip and toasted pineapple.
