❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

This recipe is super easy, you just throw all the ingredients in a bowl, mix and pour in the pie shell. If you use a premade pie crust, you can put this pie together in under 10 minutes and that is always a big plus. It has sort of a crust on top and it is soft in the center. It’s delicious with whipped cream on top!

Coconut Custard Pie

⭐TIP

This is a custard pie, not a cream pie. Many people will confuse the two but a custard pie isn’t ‘creamy’ like a cream pie. It is thicker and has a very different texture.
