  • Summary

    This Coconut Cream Lush recipe is light, creamy and filled with coconut deliciousness. It's a one-pan dessert that feeds a crowd and even has a no-bake crust option for those hot weather days.

    Ingredients

    • Graham Cracker Crust (for no-bake crust option):
    • 2 packages of regular graham crackers, finely ground
    • 5-8 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted and cooled *I give a range for the amount because I have found that depending on the humidity, you may need more or less butter
    • Bottom Pecan Crust Layer (for baked crust option):
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped or food processor processed pecans
    • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
    • Cream Cheese Layer:
    • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened to room temperature
    • 1 cup granulated white sugar
    • 1-2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
    • Coconut Cream Pudding Layer:
    • 2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant coconut cream pudding mix
    • 4 cups milk (you can also do 3 1/2, if you want it a little thicker)
    • Whipped Topping & Toasted Coconut Garnish Layer:
    • 1 (8 ounce) container whipped topping (I used Cool Whip), you can substitute the same amount whipped cream
    • 1 cup toasted coconut flakes (unsweetened)
    • Optional: Sprinkle finely chopped pecans on top
