I have always been told by my mom that life is short so we should eat dessert first. And since I was always taught to listen to my mother, this is one piece of advice that I stand by today. Today, just in time for Thanksgiving, I am going to share with your the Best Coconut Cream Pie…ever. In full disclosure, Coconut Cream Pie is my favorite pie, so I am a little biased. I have loved it since I was a little girl and I still love it now. 

Since Thanksgiving is almost here, I wanted to share this delicious recipe with you. It always has a place on our Thanksgiving table, parked right next to the pumpkin pie and apple pie. But what I love most about this pie is that it can be enjoyed all year long. And truthfully, I could seriously sneak away with a spoon and the entire bowl of the creamy coconut cream filling. But don’t tell anyone if it’s missing. It will be our secret.

Check out this delicious recipe!

What Ingredients Do I Need To Make this Coconut Cream Pie recipe?

This recipe is Coconut Cream pie with half and half. Half and half is what mama always uses. So yes, you can make this coconut cream pie without coconut milk. But, if you want extra coconut flavor, you can use one 14 ounce can of unsweetened coconut milk plus one cup of half and half instead. And this is not a coconut cream pie without the toasted coconut. I add some to the bottom of the pie shell and also mix some into the custard. The toasted coconut really gives this easy pie recipe an amazing flavor.

How To Make The Whipped Cream Topping

You can certainly make a coconut cream pie with meringue topping, but I like topping my pie with whipped cream instead.

Chill bowl and beaters for at least 30 minutes. Add cold water to a small saucepan. Sprinkle gelatin into the cold water. Over medium heat, whisk until the mixture turns clear. Remove the pot from heat and keep warm.

Beat the heavy cream on high until the cream thickens. While the mixer is still running gradually add the powdered sugar and continue beating until semi-stiff peaks form (be careful not to overbeat). Beat in vanilla then the dissolved warm gelatin all at once beat for a few more minutes. Do not overbeat.

How To Store A Coconut Cream Pie

Since this pie is made from custard, you will need to refrigerate it after serving. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
