It tasted delicious. But it wasn't thick enough. When I sent to serve it, I needed a spoon to scoop it out. Would be a great pudding recipe. I followed instructions precisely. Used Whippes topping like recipe called for. Disappointed, as I made this for my husband for his birthday.

I am not a "coconut person," but I love this pie. It is super simple to make and it is delicious!!

This is a really good recipe, and so easy and fast to put together. I use coconut pudding mix instead of vanilla, and also the coconut extract.

How do you toast coconut?

My 48 year old son who hardly ever eats desserts loved this made just as written except I forgot to toast the coconut. I just sprinkled the untoasted on and everyone agreed that this was definitely a keeper. Next time I’ll look for coconut pudding mix, couldn’t find it at Smiths.

Great and easy. I used toasted coconut pudding instead of vanilla, skip the coconut extract.

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
