You’re going to crave this recipe all the time. I love topping it with toasted coconut and even sprinkling on some extra chocolate chips. I think that added coconut extract reminds me a tiny bit of creme brulee as well. Cheesecakes are so much fun to make!

When it comes to making this recipe, it’s not hard. Add the ingredients to the bowl, beat until smooth and creamy, and then eventually you’re going to place the filled springform pan with the mixture and put it into the water bath that you’re making in the Instant Pot. (Don’t worry, it’s just a few cups of water and you’re not actually immersing the cheesecake at all.)

This is one of my favorite flavors for cheesecake and it tends to replace my sweet cravings that usually rice pudding or banana bread tend to fix. My boys also love this taste and sprint to the table when it’s ready!

What should the texture of cheesecake taste like?

It should have a bit of firmness to it while still being creamy. If you’ve ever tried pumpkin pie, it’s very similar to that texture.
