Coconut Raspberry Macarons With Raspberry Rose Buttercream.
I know how this looks.
Yet another indulgent and time-consuming dessert, BUT – wait, wait, wait!! It is so not either of those. PROMISE.
Sorry for all the yelling, I am just excited about this one.
At some point this week, I decided instead of doing some crazy dessert on Friday I wanted to try something healthy or at least healthyish. I also decided that for some reason I kind of wanted it to be a vegan dessert. No idea why since I am not even close to being a vegan, but it is just what I wanted to do. Something a little different.
Well that, and I am obsessed with using coconut milk or anything that involves toasted coconut.
Over the next two weeks you will realize just how bad my obsession has become, but in my defense I kind of did it on purpose. Since I am heading to Florida Monday I wanted to do a bunch of tropical eats. It’s gonna be so good. Unless you hate tropical foods, in which case I am sorry. They won’t all be tropical though, so don’t hate me too much.
Anyway, I can’t say this is the very healthiest vegan dessert around, but I can say that it’s pretty balanced. Yes, there is a little added sugar going on in the form of vegan chocolate chips, but other than that it’s not too bad. Ok, and there is a little vegan butter in the crumble, but if you are opposed, try swapping in your favorite granola in place of the crumble. I mean, I obviously think the crumble fits a little better with this, but granola would be delicious too.
My ultimate goal was to create something easy, but mainly something that was a little lighter for these warm summer days.
For most of you, things are getting hot (not for me, but I assume most of you live in normal non-mountain climates), people are worrying about their beach bods and lighter foods just sound better, so I decided to just go with it. Trust me though, I had brownies, cookies and about a million other completely non-healthy things going through my head. Why is it that when I know what direction I want to go with a recipe, I then come up with a million recipes in the completely opposite direction? Ugh. My brain!
Anyway, I know this may seem like it takes a few steps to make, but it’s really not bad. Each step is super simple and takes almost no time at all. Everything except the bananas can be prepped in advance. Then, after dinner, just grill up the bananas. These are perfect for any kind of dinner party or BBQ.
They are so light, they’re even great as a sweet midday snack.
And now? Can we just jump up and down that it is Friday please? I know I am jumping right now. You should try it too, it makes you happy!
These deconstructed coconut cream pies will make you happy too. They’re actually a mix between a sundae, a yogurt bowl and pie. They’re kind of a three in one dessert…

Which obviously means they’re the best. So go on, do up Friday right!
I haven’t made this yet but it looks amazing! I just want to confirm.. is that x2 15 oz cans of coconut milk? What if you use coconut cream, how much is it actually supposed to be? Thank you!!
HI Christie! Yes, 2 cans or 2 cups coconut cream! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you!! xTieghan
I tried doing just the bananas and a sad microwave version of the chocolate sauce over ice cream and it was really good!! Would Definitely make it again!

Your welcome! Thank you so much!! So happy you like it all Sandra!
I’m amazed, I have too admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let
me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks arre speaking intelligently about.
I am very hapy thawt I came across this in my search for something concerning this.
