Combine all ingredients in the food processor or blender until smooth and combined. 

Once filling is set in freezer (overnight or at least 3 hours) top with ganache. Ganache will start to go hard due to the cold filling. So spread evenly quickly. Top with shredded coconut. Serves immediately or cut into slices and store in the freezer. Take out to thaw 10-15 min before serving.
