A Chocolate-Covered Grilled Coconut With Sea Salt Recipe Perfect for Summer

For many people, coconut encompasses all the summer feels,

whether it’s mixed into a refreshing piña colada or hanging from a tree on the beach.

While you might think of coconut as a fruit, this tropical food is technically a fruit, a nut, and a seed, per the Library of Congress.

Inside you get a whole lot of fat, so a little goes a long way, but one thing you may not consider it for is its fiber

each raw piece measuring 2 inches by 2 ½ inches offers 4 grams (g), as the U.S.

Department of Agriculture notes, making it a good source of the filling nutrient.

Grilling coconut deepens its flavor and dries it enough so that the pieces can be dipped in decadent dark chocolate.

A pinch of sea salt rounds out this delicious summertime dessert perfectly!

Here’s some inspiration for enjoying coconut this way.
