I recently started using coconut milk in my breakfast again and it reminded me how much I used to bake with it. There are so many different kinds of sweet treats you can make using coconut milk. Because it has a higher fat content than other plant-based milks, it produces a rich, creamy texture that is quite similar to dairy. This is especially good for cream-based desserts like ice cream.

Today, I’m bringing you this post full of vegan coconut milk desserts to enjoy. It includes something for everyone and there are 25 recipes to choose from. Some of the recipes are my own and some are from other bloggers, used with permission. Make sure to check out their blogs too because they are a talented bunch!
