Wow! What a treat! This hit the spot today in our hot muggy weather! I made it as directed using Cool Whip Free, including the toasted coconut. BTW: I took out the frozen tub of Cool Whip at 7:00 AM before work, and it was perfectly defrosted in the 'fridge by 1:30 PM - serving time! Thanks, CoffeeB! Made for Vegetarian Recipe Swap.
