I know a lot of people aren’t fans of coconut, but I absolutely love it. The minute I saw this recipe, I started looking for an excuse to make it.

Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. This coconut cream fruit dip was a fabulous. The dip came together in about 5 minutes and was made completely in advance of Hazelnut’s first birthday party – an Alphabet-themed party. I’m still eating it, 3 days later, and it tastes as good as it did on day one. I upped the coconut flavor and added a bit of texture and garnish with some toasted coconut but you could leave it out if you prefer a smoother dip. Serve with your favorite fresh fruit (I used grapes, strawberries, mango and watermelon) for a healthy snack, light appetizer, or when the weather gets warmer, great addition to a BBQ, cookout, or lazy day by the pool.
