Coconut Laddu

Coconut Ladoo is one of my favorite coconut dessert recipe to date. Just a few ingredients, a few minutes in the kitchen and you are ready for a heavenly experience with soft-on-bite rich coconut sweet. Coconut Laddu make for perfect after meal nibbles or a party dessert.

Coconut works beautifully in sweetened condensed milk. You can also make excellent chocolate truffles with it substituting the cream.

    What is milk whitener? Is there any substitute for that?

      Dairy whitener is basically a mixture of skimmed milk powder and sugar. I used Nestle Brand. You will find it at stores like More, Spencer’s, Food World.

    Hi Sailu,

    This dessert looks very yummy. I would love to try it but I havent heard of diary milk whitener here in US. Could we use a milk powder or could you suggest something different. Your recipes turn out great everytime. Wish I could also present it as well as you do.

    Many thanks.

      You can use skimmed milk powder or milk powder that is probably sweetened (usually fed to babies). :)

      I wouldn’t suggest milk. Skimmed milk powder or milk powder will work.
