This coconut custard pie is so easy to make and a wonderful addition to any gathering. If you love coconut this is the pie for you.

Coconut Custard Pie

If you haven’t tried this Coconut Cake you’re missing out. It is one of our most popular recipes for a reason and has amazing reviews.


This recipe is super easy, you just throw all the ingredients in a bowl, mix and pour in the pie shell. If you use a premade pie crust, you can put this pie together in under 10 minutes and that is always a big plus. It has sort of a crust on top and it is soft in the center. It’s delicious with whipped cream on top!


  • (9 inch) unbaked pie shell (You can make it or use a bought one)
  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Milk (I used 2%)
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt
  • Coconut (sweetened)


You can use evaporated milk or whole milk in this pie. You could also switch out the vanilla extract for another flavor like almond or coconut.


This pie is very simple, no real prep except getting the ingredients together.


Step 1
Mix eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla and salt with mixer.  Fold in coconut. Pour in pie shell.

Step 2
Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes.  Let it cool before serving, it will continue to set up.

Coconut Custard Pie


This is a custard pie, not a cream pie. Many people will confuse the two but a custard pie isn’t ‘creamy’ like a cream pie. It is thicker and has a very different texture.


If you love coconut like we do, you will also love these delicious recipes:

Do you use sweetened or unsweetened coconut?

We use sweetened but you can use whatever you like.

Will the pie thicken when it cools?

The pie will thicken some while it cools, but it should come out of the oven done.


You can store this pie in the fridge or in a cool place and it will keep for a few days. We reheat in the microwave but this pie delicious at room temperature too.
