I really enjoy trying new recipes and this one really intrigued me. This recipe claimed to create its own crust, so I had to try it to see if it was really right. Well, guess what…it really does!! I don’t know how it does it, but I claim it is magic (my kids love that)! Although, one might think that it takes forever and a day to prepare this. Don’t tell you taste testers this, but it literally took me five minutes to prepare this recipe! All you need is a blender to throw all of your ingredients in and then blend for a few seconds and you are done! I would compare the taste of this to a coconut cream pie, especially when it is topped off with whipped cream. The crust on this is unbelievably good too. I really do not know how this pie does it! After the crust, their is a creamy coconut flavored custard layer with a lightly browned top. This dessert is officially a placeholder in my recipe box!
