Expert Tips

  • Making your own coconut cream is as easy as opening a can of coconut milk. To make your own coconut cream, refrigerate a 15-ounce can of full-fat coconut milk overnight. Remove from the refrigerator, being careful not to tip or shake the can. Open the can gently and scoop out the thick layer of fatty cream that has gathered at the surface. Discard the liquid.
  • Even though there is no traditional crust to this pie, the bottom bakes firmly, making it easy to slice and serve in one piece.
  • If you don’t have an overly sweet tooth, feel free to omit the honey from the whipped coconut cream, and simply whip until fluffy.
  • Garnish each serving with a sprinkle of cinnamon to make it extra special.
