I recently toasted a bunch of coconut for a new ice cream recipe. I’ll share that really soon because we’ve been testing it and it is awesome! Seriously, because the family inhaled it!

I realized I’ve never shared how to make toasted coconut here on Good Life Eats, so I thought I would do that before I shared the toasted coconut ice cream with you.

I love to add toasted coconut flakes to baked goods and use it as a garnish on bowls of ice cream or yogurt and granola. Do you love coconut or hate it? Fortunately, everyone in our house is of the same opinion: coconut it any form is delicious!

If you are a coconut lover and haven’t yet tried toasting coconut before, you should!  It adds a ton of flavor a depth to whatever recipe you are adding it to, and I love that it adds some nice color (thanks to the golden brown flakes!).
