    Yummy! It sounds almost like coconut pudding :)

  2. Kay-M

    It sure would be helpful AND greatly appreciated, if you would include the number of servings and the NI for each recipe! Thanks for 'considering' this!

      Pretty easy to figure out yourself :) Just look up the calorie content for each ingredient and divide it by how many servings YOU get. Serving size is in the eye of the beholder.

      I was just wondering the same thing myself--not so much nutritional info but quantity it ends up making...simply because I'm party planning and want to make sure to make enough!

  3. Wendy

    Do you think this would work as a pie filling?

  4. Joy

    Hi can this be used for a no bake coconut cream pie. It's sounds perfect for it.

  7. Melissa

    Wow! This sounds amazing! I would probably eat the whole bowl all by myself!

    In the recipe Coconut Cream Pie Dip - what is half and half.

    1. Chef in Training

      in the US it is found in most grocery stores next to the heavy cream. It is half heavy cream half milk. Hope that helps :)

    2. Karen

      Can real whipped cream be used instead of Cool Whip? I very much dislike that stuff.

  9. Sejal

    What can I subsitute the eggs with? My daughter is allergic.

  10. cindy

    this sounds really good and u could also use it for pastries with cream cheese of a filling for cakes or muffins

    1. Chef in Training

      you can substitute sweetened whipped cream if you would like

  11. Courtenay

    Thank you sooo much...I can't wait to try it.
    How far in advance can I make this?

  12. Trish

    What I can sub for the cool whip? I am trying to eat clean.

  13. Kristy

    I premade this last night for a gathering today. I plan on adding the cool whip right before the guests get here. The bowl in the fridge is soupy. Is that right?

  14. Kim

    Did you toast coconut on top?

  15. Sandra

    Can I use whipping cream instead of half and half?
