Coconut lovers in da hoooouse! I can’t help but judge people who don’t like coconut a little bit. I’m pretty sure that stuff was sent straight from the gods themselves! I love it and I love baking with it even more. Or should I say, not baking? Because this dessert happens to be a delicious no-bake dessert that is super easy to make and can be whipped up in no time!

We have a couple other versions of this here on the blog. We have a vanilla version {also, one of the most popular recipes on our blog}, a pumpkin version, and a pistachio version. I’d like to say that this coconut one is my favorite, but they are all, actually, pretty equally delicious.

I was inspired to make this version, due to my new status as a REAL® Seal Dairy Diva! I did this last year as well and I was so excited when they asked me to do it again this year. They are such a great company that focus on real dairy products from cows raised in the U.S. It gets me excited when I come across the REAL® Seal on the dairy products that I love, because I know they can be trusted and are great for my family and me.

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 15
Ingredients
  • 36 Golden Oreo Cookies
  • 6 Tbsp. butter, melted {I use salted}
  • 1 {8 oz} pkg. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cold milk
  • 12 oz. Cool Whip, divided
  • 2 {3.4 oz.} pkgs Coconut Cream instant pudding
  • 3 & ¼ cups whole milk
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes, toasted {Here is how I toast mine}
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, pulse the Oreo cookies until they are fine crumbs. Combine the crumbs and the butter until crumbs are fully coated.
  2. Press the mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place the dish in the refrigerator while you work on the other layers.
  3. In a medium bowl {I use my stand mixer} whip the cream cheese and sugar on medium-low speed. Add the milk and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. With a spatula, fold in 1 & ¼ cups cool whip until completely uniform. Spread this mixture evenly over your crust.
  5. In another medium bowl, combine the 3 & ¼ cups milk with both of the pudding packages. Whisk constantly until the pudding thickens and creates soft peaks. Spread this layer evenly over the previous layer.
  6. Let the dessert rest for about 5 minutes, to let the pudding fully thicken up. Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the top.
  7. Spread the toasted coconut evenly over the top. Make sure that it is completely cooled before adding it.
  8. Let dessert sit in the freezer for 1 hour or in the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
