♫♫ Mile-High Coconut DREAM Pie ♫♫




Mile-High Coconut DREAM Pie

  • 2 envelopes Kraft Dream Whip® whipped topping mix- dry
  • 2 3/4 cups Fat Free Milk, (divided)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 2 (4 serving) boxes Kraft Jell-O® INSTANT Coconut Cream pudding & pie mix
  • 1 cup coconut, (toasted in oven @ 350º for approx. 5 minutes till lightly browned)
  • 1 9" pie shell (any type or serve as mousse to save calories)



Mix both packages of dry Dream Whip® with 1 cup of milk & 1 tsp. vanilla on high for 6 minutes until very stiff peaks form (do not UNDER BEAT!)
Add remaining milk & both boxes of instant pudding mixes & coconut extract.
Blend slowly then beat on high for 2 minutes. Fold in toasted coconut (Reserve 2 Tbsp. of coconut for garnish if desired)
Pour into pie shell.* Sprinkle with reserved coconut to garnish
Chill at least 3-4 hrs. .

* To save 80+ calories per serving, use individual dessert cups with pie filling & sprinkle with toasted low fat graham cracker crumbs.



Be sure to use Dream Whip®, not Cool Whip!
Dream Whip® gives the pie a nice stiff texture & less calories.
Cool Whip makes a much softer pie & adds calories as well.


Servings Per Recipe: 12
Approx. 150 calories/slice if served in graham cracker crust.

  10. How gorgeous does that look? That is one scrumptious summer pie. Regarding the anchovies: If you use the paste in the dressing, the results will be similar. Use 1/2 teaspoon paste for every 2 anchovies in the recipe. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  25. I just saw your comment on Alycia's post and chuckled over your comment about the pink and green being DZ colors. I had the same thought. Does that mean we are of the same old rose/vieux green sorority?
    Oh yes, and I especially appreciate your coconut pie recipe as I love anything with coconut.

  39. Consider yourself featured! I finally made it but with cheescake pudding. Never could find coconut. But followed everything else in the recipe to a t. Yumminess extreme. I made it with sugar free pudding too. Maybe that helped with calories a little. Thanks, Lori
