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 very minimal. If you’d prefer a non alcoholic version, see recipes options below.

In addition, if you don’t have the time to make your own limoncello or no desire to do so, you can purchase 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, begin to 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.

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

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

If you prefer, you can eliminate the coconut and still have a tasty dessert.

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

Just before serving remove from freezer and garnish. I used lemons and blackberries but any fruit would be pretty on the Limoncello Dessert.

This frozen limoncello dessert has quickly become a favorite in our home. It’s light, refreshing, and oh so Italian!
