Coconut Cream Pie Recipe
By Chef Sara

This rich, luscious Coconut Cream Pie is a coconut lover’s dream with a compassionate twist! Two kinds of coconut milk stand in for the usual dairy, and organic cornstarch and agar flakes are a kinder alternative to eggs. For the best texture, allow at least 4 hours for the pie to chill before slicing and serving. Topped with cool, creamy coconut whipped cream, such as SoDelicious’ CocoWhip!, this dessert will become a new family favorite!

    1

    In a small saucepan, combine agar flakes and water, and let sit for 5-10 minutes to soften. Bring agar-water mixture to a boil, cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the agar is completely dissolved. Cover and set aside until needed.

    2

    In a medium saucepan, combine the full-fat coconut milk, coconut milk beverage, granulated sugar, coconut sugar, and salt. Whisk in the cornstarch and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. After coming to a boil, the mixture will have thickened, like a thin pudding. Stir in the vanilla extract, shredded coconut, and agar mixture. Mix well.

    3

    Pour the coconut custard into the prepared pie crust, smoothing out the top with the back of a spoon. Refrigerate for at least four hours, until set. To decorate pie, spread or pipe coconut whipped cream over the pie surface, then sprinkle with toasted coconut.

    To slice easily, dip a sharp knife in hot water, wipe with a clean cloth, and slice. Repeat for each slice for beautiful, clean slices.
