This is my favorite recipe for coconut flan. With the caramelized sugar I prefer a less sweet flan with vanilla and toasted coconut flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place 3/4 cup of the sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook gently, without stirring, but shaking occasionally until the sugar has melted. Continue cooking until the sugar has completely melted, and turned golden brown. Pour into a large, glass baking dish. Spread the caramel evenly over the bottom of the dish, then set aside to cool for 15 minutes before proceeding.
  3. Toast the coconut gently over medium heat until light golden brown.
  4. Add the toasted coconut to the light coconut milk and bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat and let reduce for 10 minutes, let cool.
  5. Strain coconut out of coconut milk.
  6. Once the caramel has hardened, pour the condensed milk, light coconut milk, milk, eggs, sugar free coconut syrup, and into a blender. Blend for 3 minutes until smooth. Pour into baking dish over the caramel.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes until set. When done, remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the dish to separate the flan from the sides. Refrigerate overnight.
