Steps to make Coconut Lime Cheesecake Mousse


Whip heavy cream


In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip ⅔ cup heavy cream until it starts to thicken. While mixing, slowly add ¼ cup powdered sugar and beat until the mixture is thickened and holds a stiff peak. Be careful not to overbeat.



Scoop the whipped heavy cream into a clean bowl and transfer to the fridge.


Beat cream cheese


In the empty mixer bowl (no need to wash it), add 8 ounces cream cheese and beat until smooth. While mixing, add the remaining ½ cup powdered sugar. Then add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, ½ cup sweetened flaked coconut, 1 teaspoon lime zest, and 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice and blend until well combined.


Add whipped heavy cream


Remove the whipped heavy cream from the fridge. Add about ½ of the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and blend gently on low speed for a few seconds. Then add the remaining whipped cream and blend on low speed, or fold in gently with a spatula until just combined.


Divide mixture between dessert dishes

Spoon the mixture into 4 dessert dishes and transfer to the fridge while you toast the coconut for garnish.


Toast coconut


Preheat the oven 300 °F. Spread ¼ cup coconut on a baking sheet and bake, stirring halfway through cooking time, about 3 to 5 minutes. The time may vary depending on your oven, so watch it carefully. Once baked, remove to a plate to cool for just a few minutes before adding to desserts.



To serve, remove the desserts from the fridge and garnish with toasted coconut, a lime slice, and a coconut cookie. Enjoy!
