Coconut no Bake Cheesecake
Bite after bite of this delicious coconut cheesecake had everyone thinking I slaved over it.
Really they just loved how creamy and delicious this was and oh the toasted coconut was a huge hit on top.
I love toasted coconut, don’t you? (if you said yes, I have a bunch of other coconut items listed at the end of this post for you to check out)
No one could believe it was no bake,
the coconut and the graham cracker crust is a great flavor combo and added to it some toasted coconut and well,
it was a true winner!
I have never been a huge fan of no bake items as they usually have some artificial taste or ingredient I don’t like,
but believe me, this had a rich creamy delicious flavor any cheesecake fan won’t be able to pass up!

Baking emulsions are flavors suspended in a water base vs an alcohol base and taste delicious. I use LorAnn's baking emulsions. They are available online at their store or amazon. I often find them in cake and baking supply stores, Ross, Tj Maxx, Home Goods. If you are unable to locate it. By all means use coconut extract.
