Your Instant Pot can be used for more than just pressure cooking! It’s a handy way to create one-pot recipes where heat is needed! This decadent Instant Pot gluten-free vegan chocolate coconut dessert is not only delicious for a post-dinner snack, but it’s also chock full of yummy healthy fats for a satisfying treat during the day. This dessert is a mix of sweet creamy coconut milk and chewy flaked coconut, and is reminiscent of the chocolate coconut candy bars. Top the final result with more shredded coconut, chocolate chips, or slivered almonds for an extra crunch.

Put the Instant Pot on Sauté – Less Mode and add the maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla, and coffee, if desired.

Mix until everything is combined and mixture is smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Turn off Instant Pot, and pour mixture into a heat-safe bowl.

Refrigerate until chilled. Whip chocolate coconut cream mixture with beaters until fluffy, and mix in ½ cup of shredded coconut.

Top with remaining ¼ cup of coconut, and serve immediately! This is also very tasty with cacao nibs or chocolate chips mixed in with the shredded coconut on the last step.
