I love coconut too. There's a wonderful drink served here called a "Cocada" - basically fresh coconut blended with water, ice, sugar and a little cinnamon. We use the green coconuts for this, but you could do it with the mature ones.

Then there's coconut rice; Coconut Chicken; Coconut Preserve ( with raw cane sugar) ; green beans stirfried with coconut and hot peppers;....

Shall I go on??

Maybe I should have posted my request here. I love coconut too and looking for a Filipino dessert that's made with sweet coconut milk and cornstarch. At least these two ingredients is what I can taste. Anyone have an idea of the recipe?

Coco-Loco Coconut Cream Pie

1 8oz cream cheese
1 can Coco-Loco
1 3.4 oz box Cheesecake Jell-O Instant pudding
1 12 oz cool whip tub
1 12 oz bag of coconut
1 deep dish ready made graham cracker crust

In large bowl, whip cream cheese, coco-loco, and pudding mix. (until well combined)
Fold in half the cool whip, and half the bag of coconut.
Pour into pie shell and pat down firm.
Pour the rest of cool whip on top of Pie, and make "peeks".
sprinkle 3/4 cup of "toasted coconut" on top.
chill until firm. (I do overnite)

This Pie is very rich as you can see! but oh so darn good!
My Sister gave me this recipe, and it is a holiday favorite.
I hope you like it as well!

Thanks for posting the coconut pie. It sounds deadly, but I will certainly make it. Coconut - my favorite, well at least one of them.

I'm assuming "cocoloco" is a canned coconut?


PS - if you haven't already searched our archives, here are some coconut goodies for you:
