Eat Your… Coconut Sweets

Coconut Sweets

In my experience, coconut isn’t for everyone. Be it the texture or the flavor, I find that most people either love it or hate it. For the coconut lovers out there I’ve been on a search for the best and most interesting vegan recipes that prominently feature this tropical ingredient. Enjoy, and if you have a favorite coconut dessert please post a link in the comments!
