Easy Low Carb Blender Coconut Cream Pie-an oldie but goodie!!

I always loved this recipe and even enjoyed it as another option besides eggs for breakfast. I thought the new low carbers might enjoy it as well. I'm not sure who originally posted it, but thank you!!

Easy LowCarb Blender Coconut Cream Pie

4 eggs - room temperature and well beaten
1/4 cup butter - room temp
2/3 cup Splenda
1/4 teas salt
1 teas vanilla
1/2 teas baking powder
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup unsweetened coconut

Place all ingredients in blender and blend.

Pour into a buttered 10 inch pie plate. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Some people added 1/2 cup Atkins bake mix or soy protein to help it make more of a crust. I enjoyed it more without the addition, it was more custard like.

Enjoy!
Nicole

I liked it WITH the bake mix because it made it more 'cakey'. I also add just a little more coconut to help with the crust.

Mmmmmm.

WalMart, or most any grocery sells unsweetened coconut. It is in the frozen foods section usually by the Cool Whip.

WOE: maintaining 124-128 range
Start Date: 2/1/13
I made this two days ago and it really improves with age

I subbed Davinci's sf coconut and almond flavors for the Splenda, and reduced the cream amount. Subbed half and half for the cream since I didn't have any on hand. I just took 1/3 each of the davinci's and added it to 1 and 1/3 half and half, added a 1/4 tsp. of guar gum and whipped up to thicken it like cream.

The half and half ups the carbs but the Davinci's saved a bunch from the Splenda count so I think I'm ahead of the game

Great dish! Considering trying other blender recipes. This is a copycat of an Impossible recipe collection from Bisquick. I'll post if I come up with any "winners". Thanks for posting this recipe.

Nuts and unsweetened coconut resource

I know this was offered somewhere way back, but for anyone who is new at this, I buy my almond "flour" and other nut flours, as well as unsweetened coconut finely ground up from nuts4u.com

The prices are very reasonable and the shipping may be a little high, but to me it is worth it.

cbcm, my Wal-Mart doesn't carry it, but our Kroger does. I find the Melissa's brand in the produce section. These are the counts on that particular brand for a serving size of 1/4 cup:

Carb: 4
Fiber: <1
Calories: 110
Protein: 1

Hope that helps.

If I want to have the crust included, do I just add 1/2 cup of Carbquick? Or is there a blend I have to use?

Made this today, and I used only 1/4 Cup of Carbquik. I didn't want it "cake-like" so went a little light. The top nicely and evenly browned for somewhat of a light, cake crust, but the underneath was still custardy (which I wanted).

I also made this with 1 Cup HWC and 1 Cup Coconut Milk (the fresh kind found in the dairy/milk section) and added about 1 tsp of Coconut Extract. Probably isn't as rich tasting as the full cream recipe, but I was needing to move that coconut milk along!

Very tasty and satisfying. Thanks for posting this!

Made this tonight, my kind of recipe, dump it in the blender and bake! It was a perfect golden brown, I planned on a pic, but DH had his eye on the prize and dove in while it was hot. Excellent stuff, I think it will be even better cold. For those who can't find unsweetened coconut, it is available here on Netrition. I think my next coconut project will be coconut shrimp.

Hi Nicole, the receipe sounds good to me. Do you by any chance know how many servings this is and what approximately is the carb count? Just wondering..
