There’s nothing better than homemade cheesecake made with real food ingredients. This no-bake coconut cheesecake is gluten free and made with a delicious coconut crust, coconut filling and topped with coconut chips.
What happens when you mix coconut and cheesecake together?
Pure happiness in the form of my creamy beloved dessert, cheesecake.
I based this recipe off of my no bake cheesecake recipe, added coconut butter and made a crust of shredded toasted coconut, coconut oil and honey.
This recipe comes together quickly and since gelatin is used (gelatin is one of my favorite superfoods) there’s no baking required! Top with toasted coconut chips and you’ll be on your way to coconut heaven!
