Preparation Time: 20 mins

Cook: 45 mins

Additional: 4 hrs

Servings: 6


  • 1 ½ cups half-and-half
  • 1 ½ cups coconut milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (9 inch) baked pie crust
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 6 tablespoons white sugar
  • ½ cup flaked coconut


Step 1.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Step 2.
Stir half-and-half, coconut milk, eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, and salt together in a saucepan; stirring constantly, slowly bring to a boil over low heat and cook until thick, about 30 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat; fold 3/4 cup coconut into the mixture with the vanilla extract. Pour the coconut mixture into the baked pie crust.

Step 3.
Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until foamy. Gradually add cream of tartar and 6 tablespoons white sugar, continuing to beat until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Spread egg white mixture over the pie. Sprinkle 1/2 cup coconut over the pie.

Step 4.
Bake in a preheated oven until the top is golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Move to a wire rack to cool until completely cooled to the touch, about 1 hour. Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.
