Revealing here are 10 Healthy Coconut Milk Dessert Recipes

As more and more people opt out of dairy, either for health reasons or because they’re choosing to avoid all animal products, coconut milk, which is made by combining solid coconut flesh with water, has earned a reputation as an excellent recipe substitute for milk, half and half, and cream.

But it’s not just the flavor and consistency that makes coconut milk such a hit; it’s also got some excellent research-backed health benefits, like reducing inflammation, boosting immunity, fighting viruses and bacteria, and more.

That’s because coconut milk is a good source of a number of nutrients, so whether you’re using it in a savory dish like curry or soup or including it in a dessert like lemon custard, chocolate coconut milk mousse, or coconut truffles, you’re getting vitamin C, folate, iron, potassium, copper, selenium, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus

Read on to find out how to use coconut milk in 10 healthier dessert recipes.

1. Coffee and Coconut Milk Popsicles

A simple blend of full-fat coconut milk, instant coffee, vanilla, and dates (for sweetness!) make for a perfect, creamy, warm-weather treat. Serve them up in a fun popsicle mold or use small paper cups.

2. Easy Keto Lemon Custard

Whether you follow a keto diet or not, this citrusy custard recipe is worth a try. Simply combine coconut milk, lemon zest, eggs, and the granulated sweetener of your choice, pour the mixture into individual ramekins, and bake in a water bath for 45 to 50 minutes. Cool and then chill the custards completely before serving.

3. Simple No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Bars

With just five ingredients, these paleo, gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free bars are super simple to make. All you need is unsweetened coconut, coconut oil, coconut cream, maple syrup, vegan chocolate chips, a square pan, and a freeze.

Pro tip: You can use full-fat coconut milk instead of a can of pure coconut cream.

Just place your can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight (be careful not to shake the can). The next morning, open the can and scoop the solid layer off the top; this is

the coconut cream.

4. Vegan Chocolate Coconut Milk Mousse

While mousse feels like one of those fancy dishes reserved for dinner parties or sophisticated restaurants, it’s actually incredibly easy to make at home. Rather than rely on the conventional heavy cream, this recipe swaps in coconut milk and combines it with cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla.

5. Divine Coconut Milk Pudding

Here’s one for anyone who feels nostalgic about the pudding cups of elementary school. The combination of coconut milk, coconut sugar, eggs, vanilla, and butter make for a slightly elevated version of classic vanilla pudding.

6. Coconut Milk Strawberry-Banana Pops

A refreshing mix of coconut milk, fresh fruit, and maple syrup make these pops the perfect healthy summer treat. Coconut milk produces a creamy fudgesicle-like texture without a ton of extra sugar or dairy.

7. Raspberry Ripple Coconut Ice Cream

The addition of raw cashews to this coconut milk-based ice cream gives this dairy-free delight the perfect nutty, naturally sweet flavor. Plus, the raspberry swirl pairs perfectly with coconut and cashew. Try adding mini chocolate chips if you want a more decadent version.

8. Vegan and Gluten-Free Coconut Cream Pie

This 10-ingredient pie includes coconut in five different forms—coconut milk (of course), coconut sugar, coconut oil, coconut cream, and shredded coconut. From the oat-almond crust to the pudding filling and the whipped coconut cream topping, this entire recipe is naturally sweetened.

9. Homemade “Dole Whip”

If you’ve ever tried the classic Disney Park treat, you’ll understand why this healthier homemade version made our list! The combination of frozen pineapple, coconut milk, and frozen banana give this dairy-free (and added sugar free) dessert that classic soft serve feel without any added gums or starches.

10. Vegan Coconut Truffles

Full-fat canned coconut milk or canned coconut cream make these vegan truffles super rich and tasty. In addition to the coconut milk, all you need to whip these up is bittersweet chocolate and coconut powder. From there, the additions and toppings are up to you—add ¼ teaspoon of mint extract to the base, roll the truffles in roasted coconut, or dip them in melted white chocolate to customize the flavors to your liking.

One more word to the wise before you start cooking: Shake those cans of coconut milk before opening to blend the thick coconut cream with the thinner watery milk for a more consistent, pourable texture.
