I have so many speedy dessert recipes, but this one is truly special. A friend shared it with me, and it immediately became the one I prefer because it tastes like a coconut cream pie with only a fraction of the work. -Betty Claycomb, Alverton, Pennsylvania

"My family absolutely loved this! Because my husband is diabetic, I used s/f pudding, s/f cool whip, no sugar added Ice Cream, and no sugar added angel food cake and it was perfect! Following the directions for when to use a wisk and when to use a mixer, I had no problem with it being liquidy at all. Will make this MANY more times!"

"Excellent recipe - Have used it for 3/4 catering jobs with rave reviews. To keep it from being "runny" be sure your pudding is fairly set up and be sure to refrigerate it well before you try to serve it. My ice cream was almost liquid and it did not affect the consistancy."

"This dessert had a wonderful taste. However, the filling was extremely runny and a spoon was needed to serve and eat it."
