Frozen Limoncello Dessert with Toasted Coconut

Here is an easy recipe to make a Frozen Limoncello Dessert that includes toasted coconut and is so delicious.

Y’all, I recently made homemade limoncello liqueur, and it is wonderful to use in this tasty, refreshing recipe. You can see the homemade limoncello recipes here.

This recipe includes alcoholic liqueur; however, the alcohol content per serving is minimal. If you’d prefer a nonalcoholic version, see the recipe options below.

In addition, if you don’t have the time to make your own limoncello or don’t want to, you can purchase it at your local wine or ABC store.

It’s so easy even I’ll make it – Limoncello Dessert

Honestly, this limoncello dessert recipe is so easy even I’ll make it, and I love that it can be made up to a week ahead of your party.

It’s only a few simple ingredients.

You can make with a purchased graham cracker crust if you desire, however the tart pan makes for a pretty presentation.

Homemade Dessert Crust

If you are making a homemade crust, you will want to begin by mixing your ingredients and pressing into a greased removable bottom tart pan. I used a rectangle pan but a round tart pan will be pretty as well.

Bake the crust at 350 degrees for approx. 10 minutes until set.

Be sure to allow crust to cool before adding filling.

Limoncello Dessert Filling

While the crust is cooling, make your filling by pouring whipping creme into a mixing bowl. Then use a hand-held mixer to beat until it is thick, with a consistency that doesn’t fall from a spoon easily.

Whipping creme for dessert filling

Add the zest of 2 lemons, lemon juice, limoncello, and sweetened condensed milk and mix well.

Pour the mixture onto the cooled tart crust and sprinkle toasted coconut over the tops of the filling.

You can eliminate the coconut if you prefer and still have a tasty dessert.

Place in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours up to a week.
