Pineapple Coconut Pie

MY DAUGHTER introduced me to several recipes that are low in sugar after I found out I have diabetes. This was one of them, and it's become one of my favorite desserts. I enjoy making this pie and baking other treats for my daughters, 10 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. -Elsie Wilson, Freeman, Missouri

    I made this pie today and made a few changes. The filling is thick and did not seem to be enough to fill the pie shell. I used a graham cracker shell. I decided to just go ahead and fold in all the whipped topping from an 8 oz. tub and it was perfect. I did use a sugar free pudding mix. Not only delicious but pretty, too. Hubby loved it.

    Very misleading on the consistency of this mixture. There was no pouring it was so thick I had to spoon into the crust. Not what I had thought it would be. To thick.

    Simple to put together, but a little bland.

    Noy exactly low in sugar & carbs. I'm a type-1 diabetic, and must count carbs. Could make this better with hoods Low Calorie Countdown milk(low carbs) or fat free half & half, as well as diet pudding mix. Sometimes I just go "crustless" as well.
