Reviews forNo-Cook Coconut Pie
"For the person that said "do not use 2% milk" the reason it was too runny, was because you used whipping cream instead of whipped TOPPING. It does not have as much body. Don't rate a recipe down a star because you didn't follow the recipe."
"Family loved this! Like the notes said, I used coconut cream pudding instead of vanilla and omitted the coconut extract. It was so easy to put together.....this will be one of my "go to" summer desserts. Will try it with bananas next time......the possibilities are endless! Just delicious!Volunteer Field Editor"
"I made this today and it is a clear 5-star winner. I followed the recipe exactly but did make it sugar free. Hubby could not stop eating it. It is thick and rich and so flavorful. We will be having this again. I highly recommend it.Volunteer Field Editor"
"I'll be making this again...so good!"
"First thing is to never use 2% milk and always use a minimum 4%, your pudding will ALWAYS be thicker. I use half and half, it's dessert so it's ok. I don't like frozen whipped topping and use beaten sweetened heavy cream in place of the topping. Coconut cream pie is one of my husband's and my favorites pies. Made with the alterations I suggested this is a 5 star recipe everyone will love."
"How can you even recommend something that is made from hydrogenated oils? Worst thing ever for your health! Not to mention it taste terrible. Shame on you!"
"I didn't use a crust - just put it in stemmed red wine glasses. It tasted great and looked beautiful!"
"My family loved it. Last less then a hour. 5 Star rating"
"Very good pie! I omitted the coconut extract and substituted coconut cream pudding instead."
"I'm trying to cut calories wherever I can, so i used sugar free pudding, light whipped topping and 1% milk. Yummy!"
