Let’s get started with making our Killer Creamy Coconut Pie!
We’ll begin with what you need from the fridge and pantry.
Any of the ingredients that you don’t have at home will most likely be found at your local grocery store or supermarket.
I’m including links to AmazonFresh for these items so you’ll have a crystal clear idea of the ingredients you’ll need to pick up.
Also, to be totally honest and transparent, we recommend the items below based on how to make this recipe however as an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. That is how we support this website.
Make sure you buy a 9-inch ready made pie crust.
1-1/2 boxes (about 7.5oz.) so buy 2 boxes (5.1oz each box) that way you’ll have enough.
Buy 1 Tub (8oz.), you’ll be using the whole thing.
1/2 cup of shredded coconut so buy 1 bag (14oz.).
You also have the option of toasting some of the shredded coconut as part of the recipe.
1 teaspoon of vanilla flavoring or extract so buy a 2 or 4 oz. bottle.
6) Whole Milk
2-3/4 cups of your favorite cold whole milk.
LET’S PUT THIS PIE TOGETHER QUICK!
Using a large bowl, pour in the vanilla instant pie filling, the whole milk and the vanilla flavoring / extract:
Whisk the mixture in the bowl until you get a nice thick consistency, like this:
Make sure the frozen whipped cream is thawed and add it along with the 1/2 cup of shredded coconut to the mix:
Fold it into the mix, like this:
When you’re done folding it in, this is how your coconut cream pie filling should look:
Now just add your freshly made coconut cream pie filling to the ready-made pie crust:
Smooth out the top of the pie:
Highly recommended but optional, add some toasted shredded coconut to the top of your pie:
Chill in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours before serving:
And that’s it we’re done! Serve it with a smile:
THE TOOLS YOU’LL NEED!
There’s really not that many things you need to put this delicious pie together.
You’ll need a couple of mixing bowls to put the ingredients together.
You’ll be whisking by hand, no need for an electric mixer for this recipe so make sure you have a good hand whisk.
You’ll be folding together some ingredients so having a good spatula really helps.
You’ll need to measure that milk so make sure you have a handy measuring cup.
Ramekins are great to hold those small amounts of ingredients like the vanilla flavoring and toasted shredded coconut used in this recipe.
DESSERT FOR ELEGANT DINING!
