Coconut Desserts

Macadamia-Coconut Shortbread Coins
When it comes to coconut desserts, we don't discriminate: With recipes for Southern-inspired coconut cake, classic coconut cream pie, and more, there's nothing coconut we don't love. Looking for something new to try? Coconut shakes and coconut cheesecake also make the list of our favorite coconut desserts.

Triple Coconut Cream Pie

Soft meringue tops chilled coconut cream for a love-at-first-bite coconut dessert. Perk up the crust with a hint of lime.

Coconut Meringue Cheesecake

This is not your average cake. It's a creamy, cocoa-loaded cheesecake sandwiched between crispy coconut crust and cloudlike meringue. Finish with a snowy layer of flaked coconut.

Coconut Doughnut Shakes

The doughnuts on top are pretty darn cute, but the luscious coconut shake is the real star of this recipe. Cream of coconut and vanilla ice cream make an easy combo that tastes spectacular.

Chocolate, Coconut, and Almond Bars

Soft, chewy, marbled with chocolate and coconut -- these guys are a bar-lover's dream. The one-bowl recipe takes just 20 minutes to prep.

Coconut Layer Cake

Love comes easy when it involves layers of from-scratch white cake and decadent creme fraiche frosting. Whipping cream and coconut combine for the soft filling.

Coconut Gumdrops

Candy makes a comeback with these chewy (and adorable) coconut gumdrops. Made with real coconut milk and rolled in coconut sugar, they're a bold new way to enjoy coconut desserts.

Coconut Cream Banana-Topped Pie

An overflow of sliced bananas is what you see, but what's underneath is even better: icy-cool layers of coconut filling and fluffy homemade whipped cream.

Toasty Coconut Wedges

Love coconut desserts? These wedge cookies are made with almost 2 cups of coconut, so the buttery flavor fills every crispy bite.

Coconut Cream Pie Bars

Win hearts at your next potluck with a pan of these dreamy coconut bars. If you can't find cream of coconut (the key ingredient), check the mixers section in your liquor store.

Coconut Macaroons

Chewy and easy to make, we love this Passover favorite year-round. Bonus: These coconut cookies are gluten-free.

Coconut, Cherry, and Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Years of making classic oatmeal cookies left us a tad fatigued. Enter coconut. A hefty dose of tropical flavor was just what these cookies needed.

Chocolate-Coconut Pudding

End your meal with velvety, cocoa-laced coconut pudding. Made with coconut and almond milk, this dessert is perfect for dairy-free eaters.

Buttermilk White Cake with Coconut

We'd like to introduce your cake soulmate. Not only is the outside smothered in flaky coconut, but the cake itself is also unforgettable. It's soft and moist, thanks to buttermilk in the batter.

Coconut-Macadamia Shortbread Coins

Who knew shortbread cookies could be so exotic? With the help of tropical coconut and macadamia nuts, the classic, buttery cookie gets fresh.
