Coconut bar is a refrigerated dim sum dessert found in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southern China and in overseas Chinatowns. It is sweet and has a soft, gelatin-like texture but is white in color rather than translucent like gelatin. It is sometimes referred to as coconut pudding despite not really being a pudding.
The dessert is made of coconut paste. It is sweetened, and sometimes sprinkled with desiccated coconuts. The texture is smooth, and the standard dim sum version has no filling.
