Helpful Tips and FAQs

What kind of filling goes best with toasted coconut crusts?

This easy-to-make Toasted Coconut Crust is perfect for no-bake cheesecakes and pies that use custard or pudding-like fillings. This would be amazing with our Sugar-Free Key Lime Cheesecake or our Sugar-Free Chocolate Cheesecake.

Does it matter which grind the coconut is?

A medium-sized shredded coconut works best. The medium grind provides structure without being too powdery. If using a fine or super=fine you may need to adjust the amounts to cover the area of your baking tray or pie plate.

Can I use a different sweetener?

I always use a Splenda or Splenda Stevia blend. Sweeteners that contain sugar alcohol adversely affect my blood sugar. This isn’t the case for everyone, so if you would like to use your sweetener of choice, feel free. You may need to make changes to amounts, depending on the sweetness level you are trying to achieve.

Can this Sugar Free Toasted Coconut Crust be frozen?

As long as you pre-bake the crust it can be frozen and saved for later. Be sure to keep it in an airtight container. The baked toasted coconut crust is delicate, so take care to not break it.

To defrost, allow it to set at room temperature until fully thawed. If any moisture remains, place it in a warm oven to allow it to dry. A warm oven is an oven that is heated and turned off. Allow the crust to rest in the oven while the oven is cooling.
