I got mine at Whole foods. I must try this recipe, but I like whipped cream on top, the only pie I like Meringue on is lemon ;)

Thanks Kevin, it is absolutely gorgeous and mouthwatering! I have the cocoa nibs, now I finally have something GREAT to use them for. :D

Hi Kevin,

I just found this recipe after going through your list - and REALLY want to make it - but would have to order both the nibs and the coconut cream concentrate online from two different sources - thus incurring two separate shipping charges - plus the concentrate is expensive.

SOOOOOO - a couple of questions:

How important are the nibs to the crust?

The other - I live in a area with a large population of people from the Caribbean (South Florida) and all of our grocery stores have an entire section devoted to food products indigenous to the area - however NO coconut cream concentrate. BUT what I did find was Pure Coconut Cream which comes in a 6 oz size. - it's like a paste. Could I substitue that for the coconut cream concentrate - it seems pretty concentrated to me.

If not I just expect that I'll have to shelve the recipe - way too expensive!

Thanks!

Barb

Barb, I used the nibs to add a little crunch and flavor to the crust but they could be omitted without a problem. Depending on your taste, a sub that could be used to acheive the same effect would be chopped coffee beans.

Also the Pure Coconut Cream that you mention will do just fine as a sub.

Let us know how it turns out for you.

That's GREAT on both counts!!!! :clap: I "plan" on making it this weekend - I can't wait - it looks SOOOOO good!

Hi Kevin,

Well I just finished making the filling for the pie using the Pure Coconut Cream and it tastes GREAT - also has the consistency that is required.

The BEST part is the Pure Coconut Cream only cost me 89 cents!!!

My husband will be VERY pleased with this one - coconut cream is one of his VERY favorites - thank! AGAIN

I will definitely be trying a gluten-free version of this when the coconut concentrate and isomalt comes in the mail! Love that you're using stuff like cacao nibs. Looks delish! :D

theredhead 03-23-2008 03:28 PM

I adore coconut cream pie with whipped cream topping, but not meringue. If I'm not doing meringue, do I need to cook the pie (after the previous steps)? This sounds so yummy! :)

mac24312 03-23-2008 03:56 PM

I made this and just ate a piece of it..what I did was instead of meringue I used Heavy Whipping cream thicken with Geltine and sweetened with a couple of drops of liquid splenda. I also didn't use the nips. I just used more pecans in my crust. So..no..you dont need to cook it if you dont use the meringue because all he is doing is browning it. It thickens up great without putting it back in the oven. Very good Kevin! Thanks!

Thanks! I'm going to try it soon. :)

Kevin, I think I can sub for the coconut cream concentrate, which I don't want to order, but have a question about the merinque; would poly-d and a little add'l Splenda work as a sub for diabetesweet, or would that fail to work in a meringue?

And, just out of curiosity, do you know if Navitas Naturals Raw Cacao Nibs (organic) is a good brand? (That's the one I've got.) Thanks.

I have never tried polyd in a meringue before but I would guess it would work ok. I like to use a little bit of some form of granular sweetener when making it because it helps to give the meringue more body. As a matter of fact, the last couple times I made meringue, I used granular erythritol instead of the powered and omitted the diabetisweet.

As far as the nibs go, I have bought Navitas and it is a good brand. Most organics are ok to buy.
