And boy does this no bake coconut cream pie go down easy! One slice turned into two turned into getting it out of the house, because two would have become the entire pie. I have no self-control when it comes to no bake pudding pies. The crunchy cookie crust, the creamy pudding, the whipped cream…they’re so light you don’t realize you’ve eaten too much until it’s too late.

That reminds me of something I’ve realized about myself that’s different than a lot of people. I only realized it after watching Jordan, when I realized she’s the same as me. My husband can’t understand why we’re always talking about or thinking about or eating food and it dawned on me that the way Jordan and I are is the minority. We think about food all the time. Ever since I was a little girl, I remember doing this. It started way before thinking about food was my job (but way to parlay that skill, am I right?).

I’m not joking when I say I think about it all the time. It’s not an exaggeration. I literally think about food 99% of my waking moments. When I get up I think about what I’m going to eat for breakfast. When I’m working out, I think about how many hours it is before it’s acceptable to eat a snack. I think about what I’m going to have for lunch, snack, dessert, dinner…constantly. I do it when I’m hungry but also when I’m not. It’s probably the reason I’m an emotional eater and a bored eater: because food is never far from my brain. I swear I was a smoker or something in a past life, with an oral fixation that manifested itself into food in this life.

When my husband complains about Jordan always looking in the pantry or thinking about what’s for dinner, I have to explain to him she comes by it honestly. I don’t know how to turn off my constant thinking about food (believe me, I’ve tried) but since I’ve kind of built a business on it…I guess it’s an okay thing.

Speaking of which, it’s now 12:05pm as I write this, and that means it’s socially acceptable to eat lunch, so let’s wrap this thing up.

So…PIE. NO BAKE COCONUT CREAM PIE, with a GOLDEN OREO crust. Just hand me a fork, no plate required.

No Bake Coconut Cream Pie - this EASY no bake pie recipe is full of coconut pudding, fresh whipped cream, and a Golden Oreo crust!

This cream pie is a marriage of a few things on this blog. It starts with my favorite Oreo Crust recipe, and I used Golden Oreos. That crust recipe works with ANY flavor Oreo and I think that the sweet vanilla taste of a Golden Oreo pairs perfect with coconut. You could also use a shortbread crust or a graham cracker crust, if you prefer – all of my cookie crust recipes are no bake. If you’re going to the trouble of making a pudding pie, why on earth would you want to bake it? (It’s why I love my Coconut Banana Cream Pie recipe, but I often make it with a cookie crust instead of pastry!)

The filling of the pie is Instant Coconut Pudding Mix. I’ve seen that flavor at 99% of grocery stores, but if you can’t find it, substitute vanilla and add 1 teaspoon of coconut extract. Then you stir in shredded coconut and pour it into the crust. Let it set, then you top it with fluffy whipped cream and tons of toasted coconut.

If you’re not sure how to make toasted coconut, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. I just posted my first Cooking Basics video tutorial, and it’s all about making toasted coconut.

The hardest part about making this coconut cream pie recipe is not eating it all.

Easy No Bake Coconut Cream Pie

No Bake Coconut Cream Pie - this EASY no bake pie recipe is full of coconut pudding, fresh whipped cream, and a Golden Oreo crust! This pie goes down so easy!


  • 1 recipe Golden Oreo Crust  — Graham Cracker or Shortbread may be substituted, homemade or store bought
  • 2 boxes — 3.4 ounces each Instant Coconut Pudding Mix
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1-2 cups  Fresh Whipped Cream or Cool Whip — for topping
  • 1 cup toasted coconut — for topping


  1. Chill your pie crust recipe while making the filling, if you made it from scratch. No baking necessary! (If you're making a Golden Oreo crust, no need to remove the filling either.)
  2. Add pudding mix to a large bowl. Add milk and whisk until smooth. The mixture will be slightly lumpy from the coconut in the pudding mix. Let sit for 5 minutes until soft set. Stir in coconut. Pour into pie crust. Cover and chill for at least 3-4 hours.
  3. Before serving, top with whipped cream and toasted coconut. Store covered in refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  3. Looks wonderful… As much as Daddy and I think about food, you were doomed…sorry.

  4. LOVE the recipe! Where did you find the forks? Have friends that literally always eat dessert first! Great gift idea!!! thnx!

  5. I am a huge coconut dessert fan! This pie looks so sweet and creamy – swoon!!

  6. I love coconut so much that when I was in Hawaii my daughter and I went in search of the best coconut cake (found it!). Thanks for this recipe – it looks mouth-watering!

  7. Awesome ! I toasted up some coconut today, so I am all good to go 🙂

  8. Coconut cream is one of my favorite pies! Love that you used golden oreos for the crust!

  10. thanks for sending me the recipe , appreciate it .

  11. omg that looks so delicious!! I will need to try it 🙂

  12. Can you just add coconut to vanilla pudding? Can’t find coconut pudding.

  13. My mom LOVES coconut cream pie, so looks like I will have to make this for her soon!!! 🙂

  14. I have to admit, I’m a very disappomtrd to check out a “recipe” that consists of nothing but instant ingredients. 🙁

  15. This looks so much easier than my “from scratch” recipe! I will make it for my mom for Easter. Thank you for sharing.

  16. This pie was easy to make and very delicious although it did not set up very firm and was more like pudding in a pie pan. That’s ok, it was still very tasty.

  17. Hi. Im sorry I just needs some clarification on the ingredients. This calls for 3 and 1/2 cups of milk? That’s 1 1/2 cups more than the Kraft recipe. Just mixed this together and it seems extremely liquid.
    Is it supposed to be 3 (1/2 cups) & not 3 cups and 1/2 cup of milk?

    • Yes – it’s 3 1/2 cups – because it uses two boxes of pudding. Enjoy!

    • I just made it with 3 1/2 cups. It was terrible. Should have read this clarification first.

      • Yes, this really needs clarification, otherwise ingredients and efforts are wasted. If it’s (3x) 1/2 cups of milk, perhaps edit the recipe as “1 1/2 cups of milk.” I plan on making this soon. Thank you for the recipe.

  18. Can coconut milk be sub’d for some of the milk ?

  19. Loved it. Went to make another but accidentally bought banana pudding. Hmm wonder how that will taste with the coconut?

  20. I am trying to understand the milk for the pudding so is it 1/2 cup 3x or 3 and 1/2 cups because the box is saying 2 cups per box please clarify

    • I made this by using the directions on the back of the Kraft Coconut Creme Pudding Mix box for making a pudding pie: 2 packages of pudding whisked with 2 and 3/4 cups cold milk for two minutes. It may be thicker than a traditional coconut pie, but I didn’t have any issues with getting it set. Hope that helps.

  21. This looks amazing and your photos are so beautiful! And seems so simple to make. I love coconut pie!

  22. Oh my gosh I love this! So simple and quick, and it looks so incredibly tasty!

  23. What are the calories and carbs per slice and per pie?

  24. Recipe – good; attempted Pulitzer Prize winning and tediously lengthy thesis….no. Please keep to printing only the recipe with a few descriptions. 

  25. For those having issues with your pudding setting properly, I made this by following the directions on the pudding box to get the correct milk ratio. According to the Kraft brand Instant Coconut Creme Pudding mix directions, whisk together 2 packages of pudding with 2 and 3/4 cups cold milk for 2 minutes. The filling was thick and set well. I mixed in a cup of shredded coconut and followed the rest of the recipe as is. I used a ready-made 10″ graham cracker crust. Hope that helps.

  26. I have prepared this many, many times. It’s soooo easy and tastes delicious! I always receive compliments! YUMMO!!!

  27. What would happen to the pudding if I used canned Coconut Milk rather than regular milk? I would think it would still set, and give it even more of a coconut taste. What do you think?

    • Having coconut in the pudding, whipped topping and the top, plus the coconut extract was more then enough “coconut” flavor

    • It won’t set up without cows milk – instant pudding needs the proteins in the milk for that. Coconut milk would only work if you used about half the amount, but then the pie wouldn’t be full (so you could add cool whip if you want)

  28. My husband is very picky about coconut cream or custard pies. He said “this is the best I have ever tasted”. My daughter agreed. The only thing I changed was using Keebler Sandies shortbread cookies because the store did not have the recommended cookie. I let it sit for about an hour in the fridge before adding the other ingredients, then we ate it about 4 hours later.
