I'd puree it into milk too. I love using coconut milk for sauces as a replacement for cream or milk. Or add in a little bit of green curry paste and fresh taragon, its great over salmon or seafood crepes

I just watched Alton Brown and he was eating some coconut pies. He hinted about the ingredients and I think I may have to try it.

Basically, roll out a piece of pastry dough, say 8"x10" rectangular. Into that was placed a coconut mix. this was one of his road food things so he wasn't cooking.

He figures along with the coconut(quite a bit) some almond extract, and sweetened condensed milk was added making a thick mixture. It was piled onto the dough which was then folded over and sealed on itself then baked.

I think a bit of cinnamon would work well in with it too.

Gee,
For some reason, all I can think about is rum!

It would go well with a glass of chilled Brinley Gold Coffee Rum.

Sounds like a coconut macaroon in a crust. Yummy!
