These Coconut Lime Doughnuts are the perfect reminder that warm weather is soon on its way if it hasn’t made its way to you already!
Okay okay, so maybe not quite. Yes, yesterday officially marked the first day of spring on the calendar, and although our weather here in Utah has been beautiful and mild, I know there are still some cold days ahead. Or maybe you even still saw snow in your neck of the woods yesterday!
Regardless of the weather situation in your area, I decided to make you a treat that would make you think of warm weather no matter what.
One of my favorite flavor combinations is coconut and lime. Actually now that I think about it, coconut and anything is my favorite. Coconut + Coffee. Coconut + Chocolate. Coconut + Any liquor of any kind. You just can’t go wrong.
Anyway, back to the coconut and lime combo. It all just takes me back to childhood roadtrips. The ones where we’d listen to my parents’ “Golden Oldies” cd’s. I vividly remember the laughter we shared while all singing “You put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up.” There was just something about that song that stuck with me as a part of my childhood memories.
So the song, along with the flavors mentioned in the song, and paired with the memory of a warm spring or summer roadtrip. It’s a given that I’ve just got to share a Coconut Lime recipe with you as we turn the corner into warmer weather.
Everything about these donuts is perfect. The light and springy cake consistency. The sweet icing. And of course the garnish of shredded coconut and lime zest.
