No Bake Coconut Pie

Back in the day when I first got married, one of the first things I did was subscribe to the Taste of Home Annual Recipe Books.  Along with my Betty Crocker Cookbook that I'm sure all cooks have a copy of, many of the meals I make today came from there.  Although I no longer subscribe to them, I often read through the stacks of books just to get ideas for new recipes.  Their website is even better!  Check them out sometime :)  The photo and recipe is courtesy Taste of Home!

Coconut anything is something I love very much.  This recipe seems to have everything we all look for in a recipe . . . delicious, quick and easy!  The best of semi-homemade!  It doesn't even need to be baked!!  

As we work on summer plans for projects around the house, quick and easy meals are what I look for.  While we are busy with other stuff, meals should still be awesome!

Would be a quick dessert to take to a party!


    • 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix
    • 2-3/4 cups cold 2% milk
    • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
    • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
    • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
    • 1 graham cracker crust (9 inches)
    • Toasted coconut


In a large bowl, whisk the pudding mixes, milk and extract for 2 minutes. 

Fold in whipped topping and coconut.

Pour into the crust. Sprinkle with toasted coconut. 

Chill until serving. 

Yield: 6-8 servings.

Yes, Gina my mom had the checkered Betty Crocker cookbook. I love it with all of her index cards tucked away in the book. (sadly the book was lost in the storm) but I still have very good memories of this book in the kitchen.
This pie is a classic standard and a favorite. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

Oh Catherine, I'm so sorry your Betty Crocker cookbook with the precious index cards was lost in that storm :( Mine is always prominently displayed in my kitchen! I still refer to it for so many things.

Love these kind of pies :)

Blessings to you . . . Gina
