Creamy, rich coconut has never been so luscious. Go ahead, say "mmm..." by the spoonful. Make sure to buy unsweetened flaked coconut to keep the SI low.



  • 1 ripe avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and mashed
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cultured coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon monk fruit extract or stevia
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes


  1. Combine the avocado, coconut milk, monk fruit extract, lime zest and coconut extract in a medium bowl. Beat with a handheld electric mixer on the highest setting until light and fluffy.
  2. Gently fold in the coconut flakes.
  3. Divide among four bowls and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
  4. Bonus tip: Add some cinnamon for blood-sugar balance.
