27 Coconut Desserts That Will Make You Feel Like You’re At The Beach

If you’re looking for a versatile ingredient, allow us to introduce you to coconut. It can pair with chocolate or cheese or pumpkin or dairy. It’s just as good in a sweet dish as it is in a savory one. And because we like to be right, we found a bunch of coconut recipes to prove our point.

The Vegan Fig Tart with Coconut-Cashew Cream is dairy-free and gluten-free. It also looks pretty.

Picture this: two slices of Gluten-Free Lemon Coconut Loaf with a layer of lemon curd sandwiched in the middle. You might end up with a massive sugar coma, but what a way to go, right?

A coconut dessert recipe literally doesn’t get any easier than this, unless you’re eating flaked coconut right out of the bag. This Coconut Ice Cream quite literally has two ingredients.

We won’t say these are better than a Reese’s Pumpkin, because our parents taught us not to lie. But they’re pretty good nonetheless.

If you really want to flex your coconuts, try this Coconut Cake recipe that uses all kinds — extract, cream of coconut, and coconut milk.
