I have been on a huge coconut kick lately. I feel like I just can’t get enough of it. I’m seeing it everywhere on Pinterest, and I cant stop pinning it all, I should probably just start a coconut board. Ive been seeing all of my favorite blogs produce something wonderful with coconut. Its one of my favorite flavors, and I’m putting it into everything that I can!
It can transport you and make you feel like you’re in the Caribbean, or sitting on the beach..you know, while watching the snow come down in blankets out there. Well.. a girl can dream, I’m still loving the coconut so keep it coming people!
The other day I wanted a coconut dessert,so I was going to make a big coconut cheesecake, but I’m all about instant gratification around here sometimes, and so is my son…I wonder where he gets that. Impatience can run in the family, apparently, plus my hubs hates coconut, and cheesecake…again, I don’t understand his palate sometimes. Anyhoo, since I didn’t want to have an entire cheesecake sitting there for me to pick at for days, I made a cheesecake dip..equally easy to pick at, not as big though.
This Toasted Coconut Cheesecake Dip was incredible! We ate the entire thing, and by we, I mean my 21 month old and I. Yes, I know. We ate it with fruit, with graham crackers, oh and you know, by the spoon(and finger) fulls. It was perfectly creamy, lightly sweetened, and the toasted coconut flakes gave it a wonderful texture and flavor. It was quick and simple to whip up, and a great snack. Using Fat-free cream cheese, improves my feelings about eating this whole thing..I would advise it, you may not be able to stop either!
