Great recipe! This is much easier than making a coconut cream pie. I would not change a thing and recommend this dessert to any coconut lover!!!!

This is delicious, tastes just like coconut cream pie. Lasts for several days in the fridge without breaking down, the crust did not get soggy as it does with pie.

This is so good. I made this yesterday and let set in the refrigerator overnight. The crust is perfect. I only had 2 boxes of pudding mix so I used that and 3 cups of skim milk. It worked wonderfully. I put the coconut in the oven at 350 for 3-4 minutes to toast it for the topping. This may be better than coconut cream pie. If you like coconut, you've got to try this recipe. This one is a keeper.
