Just because someone is vegan, that doesn’t mean that subsist on vegetables and tofu. In fact, there are many vegan dessert recipes to choose from – including these coconut brulee cupcakes. The bottom layer is made from seven simple ingredients, including warm water to substitute for eggs, and almond milk instead of cow’s milk. The top layer consists of Earth Balance, almond milk, shredded coconut and brown sugar. It’s spread on while the cupcakes are still in the oven, and takes the place of frosting.

Caramel and coconut go hand in hand, much like peanut butter and chocolate. In order to make these double flavored cupcakes, you will need a tool that holds one side of the batter in place while you pour in the other. It sounds far more complicated than it really is. After these coconut on one side and caramel on the other cupcakes have baked, top them with a layer of caramel sauce, another of coconut flavored buttercream, and then some caramel drizzles. You really do get the best of both worlds!

These cupcakes were designed with coconut lovers in mind. The batter consists of softened coconut oil (substituted for butter), unsweetened shredded coconut, and coconut milk. If you like limes, then you’ll enjoy the lime zest and lime juice that are in the cupcakes as well. The frosting for these treats contains more of both of these ingredients – most notably, coconut oil, coconut milk, and lime juice. When you combine them with all of the other ingredients, you end up with a very tasty cupcake!

What do brownie cupcakes, coconut gelato and coconut whipped cream have in common? Easy! They are all components in these fudge brownie and coconut ice cream cupcakes. The cupcakes are made from a brownie batter, which makes thicker, more dense treats. This pairs well with the coconut gelato and the coconut whipped cream (which doubles as frosting.) Simply layer on the gelato, top with frosting, sprinkle on some toasted coconut and chocolate sprinkles and serve. You won’t be able to eat just one!

There is nothing more classic than a white cupcake. However, once you add a little coconut to that cupcake, you end up with a new spin on this classic treat, something reminiscent of a Southern style coconut cake. The trick lies in creating the perfect combination of cupcake ingredients. This recipe uses coconut milk, vanilla extract and coconut extract to create just the right flavors. The frosting contains more coconut extract, with some sweetened coconut tossed in for fun.

Coconut Snowball Cupcakes are the coconut loverís dream cupcake! Unlike their iconic namesake, these feature a coconut cake. This cake is made of ingredients that combine to form a sweet and moist cake which is subsequently filled with a homemade coconut pastry cream and topped with further coconut goodness by way of a cooked coconut frosting. These make a lovely display when left their natural white, but for a themed party the coconut can be colored quite easily using food coloring.

Just like there are triple chocolate cupcakes, there are also triple coconut ones. In this case, the coconut flavor comes from the combination of coconut flour, shredded coconut and coconut oil. Since these cupcakes are gluten free (and therefore somewhat healthier), they also contain eggs, sea salt, agave nectar and baking soda.) The frosting is a gluten free key lime, made from heavy cream, agave nectar and key lime zest. The results are tangy and coconut-y and completely irrisistable!
