Cheesecake coconut with chocolate without cooking. Easy recipe. Who doesn’t love no-bake cheesecakes? It is difficult to find someone who is not crazy about this perfect dessert especially during the summer, when the heat increases the desire for fresh desserts and which do not require the use of the oven to be made. The cheesecake coconut with chocolate is a cold cake that combines the delicacy of dark chocolate with the fresh and summery taste of coconut … a delicacy you must try!

Preparing it is very simple and we will only need bowls, a spoon and an electric whisk.

The cream of this cold cheesecake is really delicious: we will make it with fresh cream and spreadable cheese in the same doses, to which we will add condensed milk and coconut flour, obtaining a very creamy and delicious mixture! The cream will then be covered with an irresistible dark chocolate ganache. And that’s not all: after resting in the fridge, we will decorate our cheesecake coconut with chocolate with a sprinkling of coconut flour, which will perfectly contrast with the dark colour of the ganache.

With a few steps and little effort, we will have obtained a dessert at the end of the meal that is beautiful to look at, fresh and greedy, of those capable of making us look great as a pastry chef!
