Coconut Cream Pie

This Coconut Cream Pie Recipe is based on reader requests. Outrageously addictive Coconut Cream Pie, just in time for summer parties! Fluffy, creamy, and oh-so coconutty. 

Coconut Cream Pie | #pie #recipe #coconut

A few months back, I posted this fluffy banana cream pie recipe and had so many questions about how to turn it into a coconut cream pie, that I thought I better come up with an anwser.

See how this works? You demand, I deliver. *wink*

Of course this was no trouble for me. I adore all coconut cream recipes and was happy to oblige.

I would say coconut cream pie is in my blood.

For years I’ve witnessed my mother order this lavish dessert every chance she gets. I love watching her face light up when she notices coconut cream pie is on the menu.

In a moment, her years of wisdom melt into childlike delight, and I suddenly picture her as a little girl sitting on a kitchen stool in gingham and pincurls, waiting for my granny to serve up her favorite treat.

That’s the power of a good pie.

Perfect Coconut Cream Pie | #pie #recipe #coconut

Nostalgic and homey, yet somehow possessing the very essence of luxury.

This coconut cream pie is no exception. Airy cream filling delicately kissed with coconut. Rich buttery coconut speckled pie crust, pillows of fresh whipped cream, and showers of toasted coconut.

Simple, yet extravagant.

I’m getting dizzy with excitement just thinking about it!

Easy Coconut Cream Pie | #pie #recipe #coconut

This coconut cream pie recipe (and our banana cream pie recipe, fluffy chocolate banoffee pie, and lemon cream pie) eliminate the need for making a custard base, by substituting instant pudding and cream cheese. In my opinion, the tang of the cream cheese perfectly balances the sweetness of the coconut filling, and provides an ultra fluffy cream texture.

I actually prefer it to custard pies and hope you will too!

For the Coconut Crust:

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 stick COLD unsalted butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3-5 tablespoons ice cold coconut rum

For the Coconut Cream Pie:

  • 5.1 ounce box instant vanilla pudding
  • 15 ounce can cream of coconut
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (or cow’s milk)
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup toasted coconut


  1. For the Crust: Cut the butter into small cubes and place in the freezer to make sure it’s very cold. Place 1/3 cup shredded coconut in the food processor. Pulse to finely chop. Then add the flour and salt and pulse again. Pour a couple ounces of coconut rum over ice to chill. Then add the cold butter to the flour mixture and pulse until it’s finely chopped and mixed into the flour. It should resemble oatmeal or little pellets. One tablespoon at a time, pulse in the chilled coconut rum (not the ice cubes) until it clumps together. It should be firm, not sticky. Mine usually takes 4 tablespoons. Dump the dough onto a piece of plastic wrap and form into a disk. Wrap and refrigerate for at least thirty minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Once chilled, roll the dough out on a floured work surface, into a 14 inch circle. Hold one side of the pie crust over the rolling pin and carefully roll it over the top of the rolling pin to transfer it to the pie pan. Don’t stretch the pie crust, but gently move it into the center of the pie pan. Turn the edges underneath and crimp the edges to seal. You can do this with a fork or with your fingers. Place a large piece of foil over the pie crust and gently shape it over the dough. Fill the foil with ceramic pie weights, or dried beans. Bake the crust for 15 minutes. Then carefully remove the foil and weights. Then bake again for 10 minutes. Cool completely before filling.
  3. Spread the coconut out onto a baking sheet. Toast for 3-5 minutes, until just golden. Then remove and cool. DO NOT take your eyes off the coconut while it’s in the oven. It can turn black in a second!
  4. For the Filling: Place the instant pudding mix in a large glass jar or plastic air-tight container. Add the cream of coconut and milk. Cover tightly and shake for 1-2 minutes until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  5. Using an electric mixer, whip the heavy cream with 1 tsp. vanilla and 3 Tb. sugar. Transfer to another bowl, cover and refrigerate. Then beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Slowly, beat in the pudding mixture. Add a little at a time and scrape the bowl regularly, to ensure there are no clumps. Finally fold in HALF the whipped cream. Carefully mix until smooth.
  6. Scoop the filling into the cooled pie crust. Top with the remaining whipped cream and sprinkle generously with toasted coconut. Chill for at least 4 hour. Overnight is even better.

    I used this recipe for the filling and everyone loved it.  I made a different crust using 15 gingersnaps, 6 graham crackers, roughly 8 oz of melted butter, 1/4 C shredded coconut, sugar to taste and a dash of nutmeg.  The filling was a great compliment to the crust.  It was creamy, set up well, and had excellent coconut flavor.  I also added shredded coconut to the filling.   I’ve looked at a lot of recipes, some custards and some puddings, and I was concerned that if I didn’t make a custard then the pie wouldn’t taste right.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.  Using the pudding made it easy to get the right consistency and using the coconut milk and cream of coconut made it taste out of this world!    Some other reviewers suggested making more than 2 C whipped cream and I would agree.  2 cups was enough, but just barely.  If you like a thicker layer of cream, I would suggest making 2.5-3 cups of the cream.   All in all, this is a great recipe and I have no doubt that the crust in this recipe is good too.  I just wanted a crumb crust this time since I was serving it with chicken pot pie which also uses pie crust.  Didn’t want to overdo it with pie crust.  :)

    I have had this recipe pinned for years! I get requests to make it ALL OF THE TIME! It is the very best coconut cream pie EVER! I had a small panic attack, because the link in my pin was no longer available. I even went right to this website and couldn’t find it in your search. Finally, I Googled “Coconut Cream Pie with Rum Crust” and here I am! WHEW! Today I am printing! Thank you so much for this recipe!

    Delish!  Everyone loved the pie!   I made a graham cracker crust instead.  Perhaps a little too sweet.  Would definitely make again just may decrease the sugar in the whip cream. Tobslance the sweet crust.   Thank you!!

    One word…FABULOUS! I made this yesturday. And just a few minutes ago, its’ last slice bid a farewell ( sooo good, my son had to have it with breakfast). It is light & airy yet creamy, it is rich enough without an overbearing coconut aftertaste that comes with some pies, and it is now one my family’s favorites. Thank you for such a remarkable coconut pie recipe, Sommer….You are an awesome cook!

    Hi there I’m from the UK’  I was looking for something different to take to a school reunion and have just come across your coconut cream pie recipe. It looks and sounds delicious and can’t wait to give it a try “but” what is Instant Vanilla Pudding, I’ve never heard of it in the UK. Would be grateful if you could help

    This PIE is one of the best pies I have ever made and eaten! I didn’t have time to make the crust, so I used a brand name deep dish pie crust. Even with that change, the pie is still AWESOME! Next time I will make the suggested crust. My husband went nuts! Thanks for sharing!

    Wow this looks and sounds amazing…I can’t wait to try it.

    Just a quick question. The toasted coconut – do I need to use sweetened coconut or can I use unsweetened dessicated coconut? I’m in the UK and sweetened coconut is not easily available. I’m going to try to sweeten some coconut for the pie crust using icing sugar and hot water….. 

    • Sommerposted June 15, 2015 at 2:25 pm Reply

      Hi Shahada, You can definitely use unsweetened coconut. Let me know how it turns out! :)

      • Shahadaposted June 16, 2015 at 4:13 pm

        Thanks so much for getting back to me, Sommer! :) Funny thing is, I couldn’t wait to make it and had already made it by the time I saw your response.

        I sweetened some coconut with hot water and icing sugar. The pie was so yummy!! And soooo big!!  I’ve never made a pie before and had heard people’s horror stories about making pie crust…I was amazed that my crust came out great (under your direction, of course)! Thank you!

        I’d love to make a chocolate cream pie now :) Looking forward to you posting up a recipe ;)

    This pie is outstanding! Followed the recipe exactly. I initially ran across this pie as a dessert in a restaurant I frequent. They changed their dessert supplier so I have been trying to find the recipe for a year. This is the one, so delicious. Now I can satisfy my craving for this decadent dessert more frequently once again. FYI, coconut rum does not make the pie non-kid friendly as the alcohol is cooked off in the baking process.

I dislike comments like, “Oh, this looks delicious!” It does, but let’s hear from folks who have made the pie. The only change I made was I used Coconut flavored Pudding and Pie Mix in lieu of vanilla. This was exceptional! I’m now a subscriber and am searching for that banana cream pie recipe on your site.

    I’m a novice pie maker and this pie was pretty easy to make. It set up nicely and my family liked it. It was definitley yummy but It is extremely rich! Too rich for my tastes, and even my husband’s, who loves pie. Certinaly nothing wrong with rich desserts, but I would just say that this is definitely not a light and fluffy pie–it’s very dense.

    I made this and it was a huge hit with my family. Thank you for the recipe! It’s now become my husband’s #1 requested dessert. For the crust, I used Girl Scout Shortbread cookies because Cookie Moms always have some left over.

    I put half a stick of melted and cooled butter, 1/3 C coconut flakes and an entire box of Shortbreads into my food processor until it was a fine crumb and would hold together. It made more than I needed for my Pyrex deep dish pie plate. I had about a half cup of crust mix left over. I let my kids use it as a topping because they don’t like coconut flakes. I baked the crust at 350F for about 10 minutes and let it cool before filling it. It was a good compliment to the delicious filling.

  45. Loriposted December 15, 2013 at 2:56 pm Reply

    It came out great and it tasted good, but there is a sour aftertaste. I used only 8oz (instead of 12oz) of cream cheese as an accident…8oz is one package so I used it without checking the amount. It also had more sugar because I had to add a lot more to the whipped cream because it really needed it. I added powdered sugar instead adding more granular because it made it thicker. I also had to make double the amount of whipped cream because the 2 cups was not enough. I probably used more pie filling because all I had were 2 small boxes (I measured 5.1 but I know it was a little more). AND I used a shortbread crust because time was of the essence. (I made it for company and served right away.) I followed all of the other instructions with the coconut milk, cream of coconut, etc. and I made it according to your instructions.

    So, with less cream cheese and a lot more sugar in a doubled amount of whipped cream, more pie filling and a sweet shortbread crust, why does it have a sour aftertaste.? The pie does taste very good but maybe if it were a lemon or lime coconut pie, it should taste like that. But coconut cream is supposed to be sweet all the way through. Did I miss something that explained that it would have this flavor? Thanks.

    • Loriposted December 15, 2013 at 3:12 pm Reply

      I just thought of this. A good way to describe it is coconut cheesecake. That is exactly what it tastes like! FYI.

    I made this recipe yesterday, it was a perfect desert. Everyone loved it but I was disappointed because as beautiful as it looked in the pie plate it needed more body. The filling was not runny but it fell out of the crust if that makes sense. There were 3 pieces left over and I had to immediately put them into containers because they were trying to ooze off the crust. Any suggestions on making the filling a little thicker without altering the flavor? My husbands 85 year old grandparents said they have never had such great tasting pie and she was a professional cook for most of her life. She suggested thickening with corn starch but did not understand it was not a cooked filling? I will make this again but probably not for a few months because it of the calories it must be loaded with.

    • Sommerposted October 1, 2013 at 6:30 am Reply

      Hey Rose, It’s hard to tell with out seeing it myself, but I wonder if you need to whip the heavy cream a little more firm.

    • Loriposted December 15, 2013 at 3:05 pm Reply

      Rose, use powdered sugar in the whipped cream instead of granular. It has corn starch in it and it really thickens it up.

    This looks super yum….but what is cream of coconut? I’ve never seen it here (in Canada). I’ve bought cans of coconut milk, which can be pretty creamy, but never ‘cream of coconut’. Help, I want to make this pie!

    • Sommerposted July 18, 2013 at 12:18 am Reply

      Hey Amy, Cream of Coconut is usually found in the cocktail section. It’s a sweet coconut syrup that is used to make Pina Coladas!

      • Shannonposted November 30, 2014 at 2:16 pm

        Ooooooh… Thanks for clarifying that! I made it with coconut milk, which was ok, but really didn’t impart much of a coconut flavor. I added in some actual coconut to it as well, and it was still yummy, but a little on the bland side. Coconut syrup makes much more sense! I didn’t use your crust. Will try next time! But I used some pre-formed mini graham-cracker-crust torts and they were so cute. It made 12 and I still had so much left over filling, I probably could’ve made at least another dozen or another pie! You must have used a very deep dish!

    • Gabriela Oposted December 9, 2014 at 2:53 am Reply

      also in Canada here! I used condensed milk as a substitute for the cream of coconut because I too raided my grocery store and couldnt find it for the life of me. Last minute in the isle I googled substitutions. it turned out wonderful, nice and full and thick.. I had way too much filling as well, but I just piled it on top of my pie. it was huge and left little room for whipped cream but honestly it was amazing.

    Yum! We have friends arriving for July 4th and I know they love Coconut Cream Pie because they served it to us when we visited them, but it was from Shari’s Restaurant.
    I will definitely make this for them. Thank you!

    Cream cheese and vanilla pudding mix?! Seriously? That is one of the most gorgeous Coconut Cream Pies I have ever seen.

    I am going to have to try this recipe, because it does sound good. And if I can avoid standing at a stove making a custard, I’ll do it!

    What a fabulous follow-up to your Banana Cream Pie, Sommer! I actually make a combo of both because I can never decide which one to make and serve. Thanks for sharing!

    My absolutely FAVORITE pie – dessert – treat of all time. My birthday is coming up and I can’t wait to make this. (Sure, I’ll make my own birthday pie :-> )

    I LOVE coconut cream pie! Sonic has an amazing coconut cream pie shake which is divine, if you never tried it. Anyway, I will be making this!

    I am SO envious that Griffin got to eat this pie!! No wonder his parting words from the sleep over were “thanks for that yummy pie”!!! Gotta make this happen.

    This is one mighty fine looking pie! Most of my family, including Eric, aren’t big coconut fans but I’ve always been into it. Now, pass me a fork.

    Totally down with this cream pie. Actually just started a “Coconutty” Pinterest board because of it!

      Love it! Happy to inspire. :)

        This was the absolute BEST pie I’ve ever made! You are a genius. I made it for a dinner party this past weekend because my husband loves coconut cream pie. It was easy to make and the final product looked just like the pics you posted. I got more compliments …. i deviated just a bit and used vodka and coconut extract for the crust because I always use vodka for pie crusts. I also added a bit of coconut extract and the toasted coconut to the custard, not a lot, but just enough to matter. Thanks for a fab recipe, I can’t wait to try the banana cream pie next!

        Hi Margie! You just made my day!! Thanks for coming back to let me know you liked it. XOXO

    Coconut cream pie!? That has got to be like a dream pie for me. I am coconut crazed at the moment and this is just pretty. Plus, it sounds amazing!
