This isn't made in a blender, but it comes out with an actual bottom crust and it's very good.

4 eggs (Beaten)
1/4 t. vanilla
1/4 C. melted coconut oil
1C. cream + 1 C. water
(Blend together well I just use a whisk)

In separate bowl.

1/4 C. almond flour
1/4 C. wheat protein Isolate
1/4 C. Poly D
1/4 C. Isomalt
1/4 C erythritol
1 1/4 C. splenda
1 1/2 C. unsweetened coconut
(I didn't have Poly D or Isomalt, so just used more Splenda and Erythritol)

Mix dry ingredients well, then add egg mixture, mix well and pour into a greased
10" pie plate. Bake at 350 40-45 minutes.

Fresh has more water content. The packaged we get is dried dessicated coconut.

I have tried it and it is yummy. My friend makes it to serve to regular high carb guests, and it's been a success. But I have little self-control around coconut, and it's calorie dense, so I can't make it as often as I would like.

Saving some calories

Hi guys- I haven't posted here in almost a year- but I had to come out of hibernation to tell you what I did with this recipe. I don't know if anyone else tried it or not, but I just subbed a 13.5 oz. can of coconut milk for the whole 2 cups of HWC. That little move saved almost 1000 calories! (920 to be precise- or 115 per serving) I used drops of liquid Splenda (someone started talking to me, and I lost count, so I'm not sure how many drops; I was shooting for 12), but other than that, I followed the recipe as written. I've eaten 2 servings in the past 3 hours I'm counting that 2nd one as supper.

A grrr and a question

I made the blender pie this evening. About 15 minutes after it went into the oven, my DH found my melted butter (with a tablespoon of added coconut butter) in the microwave. We'll see what happens with the pie. It probably will still be good, but won't be as flavorful and rich as it would have been with the butters.

This brings up a question. Since I have the two butters set aside for the pie, I'd like to make a chocolate coconut version of this pie in the morning. I have Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder, Lindt 70 percent and Giradelli 100 percent. I'm leaning toward the cocoa powder. Do you think 1/4 cup cocoa plus additional sweetner would suffice? It makes me think about the German Chocolate pies that I made in the olden days.

I'd cut back on the Splenda and make up the difference with some other AS- erythritol maybe. Splenda alone does not sweeten chocolate.

I made this pie with the can of coconut milk, and it was a big hit. I also used the 12 drops of EZ Sweetz, and it was just sweet enough for us. The coconut extract and added coconut enhance the coconut flavor. So easy, and a nice treat. I actually liked it better than the HWC recipe which I made previously.

If you use cocoa powder, won't you need to increase your liquid or fat/oil? Let us know how you fair with the chocolate version. Scatter a few chopped or slivered almonds over that and you'll have an Almond Joy Pie. Yum.

Does anyone have a pic of this? I tend to judge a book by its cover, too...

I looked up some recipes for German chocolate pies, and most called for 4 ounces of German sweet baking chocolate.
The equivalent of 4 oz. of Baker's German's sweet chocolate can be created with 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder plus 1/3 cup sugar (erythritol maybe?) plus 3 tbsp. of fat, such as butter, margarine, shortening or vegetable oil

Yep, Cooks' thesaurus calls for butter/shortening to be added when using cocoa powder.

I did google!

There are 2 kinds and I can't decide. One is a chocolate pie with coconut/pecan topping, and the other is pecan pie with chocolate/coconut added.

German Chocolate Pie: I'm drooling. I think mine always came out with two layers. This should be doable for low carbing.

I love German Chocolate pie. A local cafeteria used to serve it here. It was like a pecan pie with nuts and coconut added, however, it was not clearish like pecan pie if that makes sense.

It was very rich which is why I liked it so much.

I'm thinking that we got it at a Luby's cafeteria (too many years ago). The recipe that I got was inside a bar of German chocolate. I served it for many years. I think the coconut and nuts rose to the top during cooking.
