As a child I living in Utah, a coconut was something I didn’t hardly ever see or know much about. One thing I do remember is that my aunt lived in Samoa for 2 years and she mailed a whole coconut with the husk on, to my grandparents. She wrote the address on the actual coconut in black marker, painted varnish over it to preserve the address and to make it shiny, stuck stamps to the coconut and mailed it that way.
My grandparents never ate it because they didn’t know how to break it open. They had that coconut sitting in their living room for years and I thought it was the coolest thing.
I love, love, LOVE, coconut in any form. It is probably my favorite fruit (and yes, it is a fruit). I cook with it, condition my hair with it, use it as lotion and any other way I can.
Here is a list of the best 25 Gluten-Free coconut recipes. There are a mostly desserts in my list but how else would you want to eat coconut if it wasn’t in a dessert. These recipes include real coconut to make them a coconut recipe, not just coconut milk or coconut flour. That was my goal.
I don’t know about you, but I need some dessert in my life occasionally, or more often than I’d like to admit, but the greatest part about these desserts is that I don’t have to worry about all of the consequences eating gluten does to my body.
