The Betty Crocker Project : Frozen Coconut Cream Pie

It's 798 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of chilled San Pellegrinos, it's sunny out and we're wearing sunglasses. Let's make some pie*!

Hit it. 

This photo shows the roasted coconut better but the crust was all crumbly... SIGH.

Frozen Coconut Cream Pie
  • 1 Chocolate Cookie Pie Crust 
  • 1 Package Silken Tofu
  • 2/3 Cup Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Coconut Oil Spread (you can use Margarine if you can't find the coconut spread - either way it needs to be softened)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla or Coconut Extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Agave Nectar
  • 1 Cup Shredded Raw Coconut
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Flour or Corn Starch
Set your oven to 350. Spread 3/4 cup of Raw Shredded Coconut evenly over a cookie sheet. Place in the oven for 5-7 minutes. Remove when the Coconut is lightly browned and toasted.

In your food processor puree 1/4 cup Raw Shredded Coconut. Then add Sugar, Coconut Oil Spread, Vanilla, Coconut Milk, Coconut Flour, Sea Salt, Agave Nectar and Silken Tofu to your food processor, blend until it is smooth and creamy. Pour into your Pie Crust and evenly sprinkle toasted Coconut over the top. Put in the freezer for 8 hours.

* If you're wondering if this pie is more like an ice cream treat than a cream pie... it is.



  1. I don't know how I missed this a couple of days ago but I CAN'T WAIT to make it!

  2. Loving the kitty picture! And the recipe!!! Wow!! Just a suggestion: try the HimalaSalt pink salt from Sustainable Sourcing (here's their website: ) or their organic peppercorns. The taste is extraordinary--everything tastes BETTER! And thanks for your's really neat!

  3. Looks great, but is there something you can use besides tofu, I don't do soy, it disrupts hormones immensely and is not a good food for people to eat (not a real food).

    1. Sorry but most research would actually say the opposite. many vegetables have pytoestrogens not just soy and pytoestrogens are not the same as our estrogen. You can choose to not eat it that is your choice but I believe that non GMO soy is fine in moderation.

  4. YESSS, I have all of those ingredients already!
