Coconut cream is the main ingredient in this dip. It is much thicker than coconut milk and ย usually has the consistency of soften butter in room temperature which makes it a fantastic ingredient for easy and flavourful dips!

There is no cooking involved here and you can tweak it to as salty, tart, sweet as you want. The bonus? You can even tweak the thickness of the sauce to your hearts desire. ๐Ÿ™‚

Too Thick? or Not Thick Enough?

Depending on the brand of coconut cream you buy, they sometimes come very thick – almost paste like. Thin it out to your preference by adding milk in it.

If the dip is not thick enough or you added too much liquid, I find adding desiccated unsweetened coconut flakes thickens it up quite nicely again.



Dip Everything! ๐Ÿ™‚

Everything and anything, but if you must choose here are a few suggestions:

  • Chips
  • Wraps
  • Deep fried crispy snacks
  • Curries

A simple coconut dip that is made with coconut cream, lime and garlic to give it the full bodied creaminess and coconut flavour.


  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce (or soy sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1/2 lime (juiced)

  • 1 tablespoon desiccated unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion seeds (optional)


  1. In a bowl, add the coconut cream
  2. Squeeze fresh lime into the coconut cream and mix it together
  3. Finely chop the garlic and add it to the mix
  4. Add some maple syrup and fish sauce and adjust it for the salt and sugar balance to your preference. Add more maple if you prefer a sweeter dip.(Note: Fish sauce is a very potent and salty ingredient, if you are going to tweak it experiment with it do it a little bit at a time.)
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of dried shredded unsweetened coconut. This will thicken up the dip and give it a bit of texture. Add more if you want a thicker dip
  6. [Optional] Adding 1/2 tsp of onion seeds adds a bit more spice and flavour to the dip.
  7. Enjoy with snacks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. i’m not a huge fan of plain chicken, but if i had this sauce to serve it with, i’d eat it alllll day long. also thinking about how good this would be with sauteed veggies, a hard-boiled egg and some rice. mmm.

    1. I did it with chips. Not sure it was that tasty with chips haha but definitely good with fried chicken and fritters! I even scooped some into my pasta sauces! The coconut cream melts into a oil and gives it a nice flavour!
