Coconut Cream Pie Parfaits
This coconut cream pie parfait recipe is simply the perfect coconut dessert!
When I was younger I was completely uninterested in anything coconut flavored. Isn’t it funny how as we get older our tastebuds change? At 30 I’ll eat pretty much anything I can get my hands on that has coconut in it. If there is a coconut popsicle I’m sure to reach for it over almost any other flavor. I used to pass on coconut cake, sacrilege! This recipe for coconut cream pie parfaits is my proven custard recipe transformed with coconut. I know you and your family are going to love these parfaits!
I use the exact same vanilla custard base recipe with my banana cream pie and the same technique with my pistachio parfaits. Once you get past the fear of whipping up from scratch pudding on the stove you’ll never open a box mix again! The flavor, texture and richness of homemade pudding is the best!
Watch the video below to see how I make these coconut cream pie parfaits. Pay attention to the whisking- you can see the thickness change! It’s a gratifying feeling, right?!
