Want a Coconut Cream Pie but don't have all day to make it, try this!

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Servings:
1 pie

Ingredients

1 9-inch regular pie shell (homemade, frozen, refrig, graham cracker, etc. are all good) already baked and cooled
1 3.5 oz package of instant vanilla pudding mix
1 3.5 oz package of coconut cream pie pudding mix (if you can’t find this flavor, I suggest using another package of vanilla and add a bit of coconut flavoring when mixing for extra flavor)
2 cups milk (can use refrigerated coconut milk for extra flavor)
1½ cups flaked sweetened coconut, keeping ½ cup to the side
1 8 oz container frozen whipped topping (Cool Whip), thawed

Directions

  1. Take ½ cup coconut that you set to the side and toast. I do this in a small skillet over medium heat until most of the coconut is golden brown. You can also toast in the oven, but I find it a waste unless you’re toasting a large amount.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the pudding mixes and milk and stir until the mixture is thickened.
  3. Fold in the remaining 1 cup of coconut and half of the frozen whipped topping into the pudding mixture.
  4. Pour the resulting mix into the prepared pie crust and spread evenly.
  5. Top with remaining whipped topping.
  6. Sprinkle toasted coconut on top.
  7. Refrigerate until serving and enjoy!
  8. Optional Notes Really bump up the coconut flavor by using coconut extract and serving with coconut whipped cream!
