Coconut and Condensed Milk Dessert Recipe

Treat yourself to a deliciously rich and creamy coconut and condensed milk dessert. This easy recipe combines the tropical flavor of coconut with the sweetness of condensed milk for a delightful treat that’s perfect for any occasion.


  • 2 cups shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional, such as almonds or cashews)
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut for coating (optional)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract. Stir until all the ingredients are well mixed.
  2. If you’re adding nuts, fold them into the mixture at this point.
  3. Using a spoon or your hands, form the mixture into small balls or any desired shape. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. If you like, roll the formed balls in desiccated coconut to coat them. This adds an extra layer of coconut flavor and texture.
  5. Once all the mixture is shaped and coated, place the baking sheet in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours. This helps the dessert firm up.
  6. After chilling, your coconut and condensed milk desserts are ready to be served. Enjoy them as a sweet treat or a dessert at any time!

Note: These desserts can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
