You either love or hate coconut, but if you love it, then you really love it. There’s so much you can do with coconut as well because it pairs so wonderfully with so many other ingredients and flavors.
One way you can enjoy coconut that isn’t widely talked about is in the form of pie. Coconut pie tastes absolutely delicious and the crispiness of the pie crust adds a whole depth of texture that makes it completely irresistible.
If you’ve never tried coconut pie, it can be quite difficult to know where to start. But that’s where we come in! We’ve put together a list of 15 delicious and easy coconut pie recipes that you will absolutely love.
So let’s get started.

Once you see just how easy this impossible pie is to make, you’ll be making it again and again.
2. Coconut And Lemon Cream Pie
If you are a fan of lemon, then you definitely need to try this coconut and lemon cream pie. The crust is quite similar to shortbread, but it might surprise you to learn that it’s actually only made with coconut oil.
The center of the pie is a bit like lemon curd and the pie on a whole is flaky, crumbly, and delicious. The coconut and lemon work together incredibly well and will leave you feeling satisfied after every single bite.
You can serve this pie straight away, but it will be quite messy. To avoid this, chill it in the fridge for a few hours first.
