No Bake Pineapple Coconut Cream Pie

Experience the tropics with every bite of this refreshing no bake pineapple coconut cream pie. From the sweet and tangy crushed pineapple to the fluffy whipped coconut cream to the crunchy toasted coconut, this is summer in a pie!

(Love tropical treats? Try this cold and refreshing buko pandan. It’s a popular Filipino dessert made of coconut, tapioca pearls and pandan-infused gelatine. It’s delicious! Mango graham cake or mango float is another favourite summertime treat – absolutely no baking required.)

No Bake Pineapple Coconut Cream Pie

I may not want to admit it but summer is winding down. We still get marvelous sunshine however the days are getting shorter, the air is crisper in the morning and it’s been averaging in the low 20s (65F) more and more.

Plus, this is the last recipe in our No Bake Summer Series! That went by fast (remember the Strawberry Mango Banana Smoothie from June?).

We will pick it up again next year but in the meantime, I leave you with this amazing, no bake pineapple coconut cream pie. It’s the perfect send-off to summer!

Labour Day weekend

No Bake Pineapple Coconut Cream Pie

I know a lot of you have been busy with back-to-school activities but here, school doesn’t start until after Labour Day. So the Labour Day weekend is really when we try to cram as much summer activities as we can.

And this pie is perfect for those BBQs and picnics and parties you’re cooking up. Pineapples + coconut + more coconut…a summer dessert can’t get any more tropical than this!

Use chilled coconut cream

No Bake Pineapple Coconut Cream Pie

I kid you not when I say it’s super easy to whip this up. Just one important thing to remember: use coconut cream and not coconut milk. The cans look very similar sometimes so double-check you’re grabbing the right one.

And chill the can the night before you plan to use it. You want the solidified coconut cream and not the watery bits. Don’t throw away the watery portion though! It’s still good for other recipes like smoothies.

Then off you go! Prepare your crust. Freeze. Prepare your filling. Chill. Top with toasted coconuts and more whipped coconut cream before serving. Enjoy! It’s really that easy.

So this long weekend, the last long weekend of summer, make this no bake pineapple coconut cream pie and have a wonderful time! Make it count!

Instructions
 

For the Coconut Crust:

  • In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut, ½ cup melted butter and a pinch of salt. Stir until evenly moist.
  • Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Freeze while you prepare the filling.

For the Pineapple Coconut Cream Filling:

  • Pour 1 packet of unflavoured gelatine into a small bowl with 3 tablespoons of pineapple juice (drained from the can of crushed pineapple). Do not stir. Let sit for 10 minutes to allow it to bloom.
  • In the meantime, using a handheld electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and 2 tablespoons sugar on medium high speed until smooth and creamy. Fold crushed pineapples. Set aside.
  • Using a handheld electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip a can of coconut cream (only use the solidified portions of your coconut cream, see my notes above) on medium high speed until resembling soft peaks.
  • Get your gelatine and microwave for no more than 10 seconds (the bowl should not be warm to the touch). Whisk until smooth.
  • With the mixer on medium low speed, gradually pour the gelatine in a steady stream into your coconut cream. Continue whipping until incorporated.
  • Fold your coconut cream into your cream cheese pineapple mixture.
  • Transfer the filling into your prepared crust and chill for 4-6 hours, preferably overnight.
  • To serve, top with coconut cream and sprinkle with toasted sweetened shredded coconut

Thanks for the tip about coconut cream! I thought coconut milk and coconut cream are kinda interchangeable.

Summer is a bit short this year!

Cream cheese, pineapple and coconut cream - sounds like I've gone to the islands! Beautiful pie and I bet with some gluten-free graham cracker crumbs I can make this for my daughter. Thanks for the last flavors of summer!

This sounds so delicious! It has been averaging around 10 here... So fall is definitely here... It even snowed in the mountains recently... Yikes! So any recipes that lets me hold on to a bit of summer is good for me!

Yikes! And I thought our frost warnings were bad lol. Oh well, it's inevitable I guess :) And yes, we will grill as long as we can and hold on to summer as much as possible!
