5 from 1 review

This coconut pie recipe is so rich, creamy, and coconutty. And it's just so, so delicious too. It has the taste and texture of rich custard and it's flecked with shredded coconut and encased in a buttery, flaky pie crust. It's an old-fashioned pie that is made with just a handful of simple ingredients. And, best of all, it takes just 5 minutes to prep.



2 cups of shredded coconut

1 1/4 cups of whole milk (or coconut milk)

3/4 cup of granulated sugar

2 beaten eggs

3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons of butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180ºC).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine milk, sugar, coconut, eggs, flour, and vanilla, and mix until well combined.
  3. Grease a pie dish and unroll the pie shell over it. Crimp the edges of the pie crust.
  4. Pour the mixture over the pie crust.
  5. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until it sets. You will know it's ready when inserting a toothpick in it comes out clean.
  6. Let the pie sit on a wire rack until it cools, then slice and serve.
