paleo chocolate coffee coconut dessert

No Cooking, Super Fast, Totally Delicious

This is one of my favorite desserts ever, and you can make it into any flavor you want – it doesn’t have to be coffee-flavored or chocolatey.

The basis for this dessert is coconut butter. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you’ll probably know that I LOVE coconut butter.

If you’re new to coconut butter, then check out these 2 posts: 12 Ridiculously Addictive Coconut Butter Recipes and How to Make Coconut Butter.

To start off, you want to melt 1/2-2/3 cup of coconut butter in a bowl (you can melt it in the microwave – just remember to take off the metal lid if you’re melting the entire jar). It doesn’t need to be too melted – just enough to for it to be vaguely stir-able. If your apartment is as hot as mine is, then it might already be soft enough!

Then just add in your choice of flavors – I like pure cocoa powder with some freshly ground coffee beans and a sprinkle of coconut flakes. Then I sweeten it with just a tad bit of honey.

You can use any coffee of course (freshly ground, already ground, whatever you want). I actually used Bulletproof coffee, although I have a feeling that Dave Asprey will think it’s a waste of his coffee!

Then just mix everything up, and you’ll be ready to put it into ice-cube trays. Place 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil into each ice-cube tray first – this makes the tops of the desserts smoother as the oil fills up any gaps in the mixture and gives it a slight marbled look.

Then just spoon in your mixture into the ice-cube tray and pat it down.

You should be able to make 6-7 of these desserts with the recipe. Freeze them for 4-5 hours (it will probably harden in an hour or two, but I haven’t tested this out). If you’re really lazy, you can also just eat the mixture straight from the bowl without freezing it!

Let the dessert defrost for around 15-20 minutes before serving it (otherwise it’ll be too hard to bite into). It’s perfect with a cup of tea or coffee or as a quick snack.

    I love the ice cube tray idea. never thought of that. i’m sure i’d eat the whole thing in one sitting!!

    • Louise August 15, 2013, 9:12 pm

      I actually found it difficult to do so because it’s so filling! I can usually only eat 2 in one sitting.

  • Edwin August 14, 2013, 9:52 pm

    so… here I am again… :P im about to start prepping this recipe… so most likely I’ll be happy with the outcome…:)
    thank you for so many easy recipes and soooo yummy!

    • Louise August 15, 2013, 9:14 pm

      :) Let me know what you think – I love this one (one of the healthiest Paleo desserts, apart from perhaps the Paleo jello).

  • Angy August 16, 2013, 9:20 am

    I am going to use my silicon mini muffin cups instead of an ice tray! I will let you know how that goes. Can’t wait to try these.

    • Louise August 16, 2013, 4:38 pm

      Let me know how that works!

  • Melissa August 22, 2013, 9:17 pm

    I used a mini-muffin pan, which works just as well. Thanks for the recipe!

    You Rock!

  • Davide.c October 2, 2013, 8:26 pm

    beautiful! but i don’t have any access to coconut oil, can i use something as an alternative?



    • Louise October 2, 2013, 11:59 pm

      Do you mean coconut butter? Any nut butter or perhaps even cocoa butter should work.

  • Diane November 11, 2013, 2:00 pm

    Ground coffee?? Really?

    • Louise November 11, 2013, 7:11 pm

      Yep – I used freshly ground up coffee beans. You can use your own coffee preference (instant, pre-ground).

      • Diane November 12, 2013, 7:06 am

        Okay, just wanted to be sure you didn’t mean instant. Thanks so much. Sounds yummy!

  • Mary B. January 9, 2014, 1:50 pm

    I followed your instructions for making coconut butter, then made these delicious truffles.
    I filled tiny paper truffle cups with about 1 tsp. or so of the mixture, then put them in the frig to harden. I didn’t use coconut oil.
    They are just wonderful, and a little bit really does satisfy that sweet craving.
    Thank you!

    • Louise January 9, 2014, 2:59 pm

      That’s great!

  • paleo January 18, 2014, 8:17 pm

    Can you use just coconut oil instead of coconut butter?

    • Louise February 18, 2014, 2:40 pm

      It would change the texture – I would add in more coconut flakes if you only use coconut oil.

  • Natalie February 18, 2014, 11:12 am

    Oops! ALSO- Can you use used coffee grounds instead of raw ones?

    • Louise February 18, 2014, 2:41 pm

      Hi Natalie – do you mean coffee grounds that has been used to brew coffee already? I guess so (although I’m not sure it would taste quite as good), and I would dry them out first.

  • mabel March 14, 2014, 8:22 am

    Do you mean coffee powder that is used when brewing coffee or instant coffee powder? Won’t it taste like saw dust?

    • Louise March 14, 2014, 1:52 pm

      I used freshly ground coffee beans. Coffee beans are quite tasty, and the small amount that’s added just provides a slight crunch and flavor.

  • Megan March 31, 2014, 2:24 pm

    I’m all out of honey, do you think I could substitute pure maple syrup instead? I can’t wait to try these. Thanks!

    • Louise April 2, 2014, 6:46 am

      Yes – should work fine :)
