MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 24, 2012

It's been over 100 degrees for two weeks now and this is such an easy, refreshing dessert. I used sugar-free, fat-free everything and I added 4 oz fat free cool whip. I should have taken out about 1/2 cup of the skim milk to compensate. I also taosted the coconut. It was yummmmy! A real keeper and if I cut the pie into 12 slices it comes out to less than 200 calories/slice.
