Coconut Cream Pie
Totally not healthy like Frozen Chocobanana Bites or Homemade Chocolate Pudding, but it is yummy! I make it every year for my hubby's birthday, and I think I will be making again soon since there's a lonely pie crust in the fridge just waiting to be rolled out and filled. :)
Here's what you will need:
- 1 pie crust ( I either use a homemade one or the Pillsbury roll out kind.)
- 1 small box cook n serve vanilla pudding
- 1 small box cook n serve coconut cream pudding
- 1 pkg. sweetened coconut
- 8 oz Cool Whip ( I don't like Cool Whip, so I use homemade whipped cream instead)*
- Small amount of butter
Here's what you will do:
Pour pudding into cooled pie shell and put it in the fridge until set. (A few hours) Mix about 1/2 of the toasted coconut with the whipped cream* and spread over pudding. Sprinkle remaining toasted coconut on top. I usually put back in fridge for a little bit after this last step.
Slice and savor!
*To make homemade whipped cream, I buy a pint of whipping cream, add about 2 TBSP of sugar, and beat with a mixer on high until cream is nice and stiff. Tastes so much better than Cool Whip.
