A Really Easy To Make Creamy Coconut Cream Pie

A Really Easy To Make Creamy Coconut Cream Pie

If you want a simple dessert you can bring to your potluck, try this Easy Coconut Cream Pie. I am sure everyone will rave about it. 
 

Pre-made graham cracker crumb crust and instant pudding make this Coconut Cream Pie so easy to prepare. Adding whipped cream and toasted coconut flakes on top made this dessert a complete package.

 
You can toast the coconut flakes in the skillet but if you are using an oven, just make sure to keep an eye on it. Coconut flakes should be light brown only.

 
If you want an intense coconut flavor, you can replace one vanilla pudding package with coconut cream pudding. However, if you are having a hard time looking for this instant pudding flavor, you can use the two vanilla instant pudding and add a teaspoon of coconut extract. You can add more extract based on your preference though this is just an optional ingredient.
