  1. In a small bowl, combine coconut and butter. Press onto the bottom and up the side of a greased 9-in. pie plate. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until firm.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Spread 1-1/2 cups over crust.

Coconut Pistachio Cream Pie Tips

How should you toast the shredded coconut for the crust?

You can toast coconut in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally until lightly browned. If you prefer, you can also toast coconut in the oven just as easily.

How long will coconut pistachio cream pie last for?

Coconut pistachio cream pie will last for about 3-5 days covered in the refrigerator. Be sure to cover with plastic or re-useable wrap, or seal in these storage containers we love.

What other toppings can you put on coconut pistachio cream pie?

Use your favorites! Try topping your homemade cream pie with white chocolate shavings, a drizzle of chocolate sauce, or even more coconut!
