Our Keto Coconut Cream pie is everything you’re looking for in a keto dessert. It is low carb, it is low sugar, and above all it is delicious.
Finding Keto desserts that taste as good as the original, and are low carb is loosely considered a miracle. In that case, my friends, we’ve done a fantastic miracle.
Before we dive into the recipe we want to just take a moment to explain to our readers why so many people are joining the Keto movement and the benefits behind it.

Most of our readers are in fact not ketogenic diet followers so we decided it would be best to inform them because perhaps this would be something that they would like to fit into their lives!
The Ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that puts your body into a fat-burning mode. This fat-burning mode is also famously known as ketosis.
Ketosis simply means that your body switches from burning sugar for energy to fat. This eats away at the body’s store of fat and gives you a much leaner figure.
It is a popular belief that the easiest way of losing weight and getting leaner is to workout more. Diet is more often than not the most underrated and most effective way of reducing your body fat percentage.
Switching to a ketogenic diet has helped millions of people with their weight loss journeys. Most standard diets nowadays involve some type of balanced version of a type of protein, vegetable, and carb.
When you get into the ketogenic diet you instead switch the carb for a fat. In food terms, this would mean that you would switch a bowl of rice for a sizeable portion of avocado or eggs.
For years now it seems that people have been benefiting significantly from ketogenic diets. Many studies are concluding that there important reductions in insulin levels as well as blood sugar.
Did you know that David Goggins the famous ultra endurance athlete follows a ketogenic diet?
Apart from these health benefits, the ketogenic diet has been shown to improve significant risk factors for deadly diseases such as heart disease, the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and many others.
As always we recommend doing your own research and looking at the medical studies that have been published before making your own nutritional decisions.
So what exactly can you eat with a ketogenic diet? And is this sustainable? It seems that following a keto diet will get rid of all the fun people have in eating.
This is a quite basic list and makes us wonder where in the world would we be able to eat a coconut cream pie? Doesn’t that include all the things that people on keto would get mad at me for even mentioning?
That’s why we have to consider these desserts basically miracles. We’re copying something that should be quite carb intensive and quite sugary for something that is low carb and still delicious.
We hope you guys try it out and let us know how we did!!
Even before making this recipe, we realized that coconut is definitely an extremely underrated ingredient in desserts! It is a natural, often sugar-free ingredient that can add a lot of flavor to any regular dish!
We’re going to break down this recipe into two separate recipes for the complete keto coconut cream pie.
We’re gonna first focus on the crust of the pie. These are the following ingredients you’re going to need to make a beautiful keto coconut flour pie crust.
Time needed: 45 minutes.
It would be best to use a food processor to mix these together. We’re aiming for a crumble-type consistency.
Add your shredded coconut, beef gelatin powder, and erythritol for another pulse of the food processor
Add the two large eggs and vanilla extract (or whichever extract you want to add) to the food processor and pulse until a thick dough forms.
Mold the dough to make sure that it is evenly doughy and once in a uniform ball wrap it with plastic and let it sit in the fridge for around 45 minutes.
Placing your dough on some parchment paper separately and try to roll it out evenly to prepare for placement on your pie plate. If needed place another sheet of parchment paper over your dough for better rolling.
This step is often the hardest step of the whole pie crust making recipe. Ideally, you place your rolled out pie dough and form it on your pie plate ready for the oven. However, it can easily break and you can still form it piece by piece if necessary.
Let us know how you did in the comments!
Shape the edges however you’d like for presentation and add some holes on the bottom of your crust for proper baking.
If you follow this recipe you’re going to get a fantastic low-carb crust for your keto coconut cream pie. Now let’s get to the creamy goodness!
Before we dive into the recipe of the pudding for our keto coconut cream pie and putting everything together we’re just going to detail how we come about making our gelatin and our whipped cream.
For our gelatin, we’re going to start off with two bowls, one with warm/lukewarm water and the other with significantly hotter water.
We’re going to start off but adding our beef gelatin to the warm water and mix continuously. Once we have a consistency that we like, we’re going to follow up by adding our second bowl of hot water.
Mix properly until there are no obvious clumps floating around! That should be it for the gelatin, and this will be an essential step to our later development of the whipped cream.
So how do we make our whipped cream? It’s relatively quick so here we go!
In a rather large bowl add in your whipping cream. We will then add in our extracts and finish it up with powdered sugar. Mix all the contents together and taste before adding in your powdered erythritol.
We want to taste BEFORE we add the powder because we don’t want to make the whipped cream too sweet! Also, you need to put the whipped cream into the context of the whole pie.
So if it is too sweet, and on top of that we’re adding the pudding which is already sweet we might have a problem!
We hope you enjoy this pie as much as we did
We saw this in a cooking show and decided to try it and it actually worked out quite splendidly. We’re going to recommend that you guys try it too!
What we’re talking about is making sure that the whipped cream stays cold throughout the whole process. Add a larger bowl under the whipping cream with ice to make sure that it stays at that desired temperature.
We also recommend finding some toasted coconut shreds to add to the topping of your coconut cream pie! Will make it a wonderful last-minute flavor blast.
A final tip that we have is that you wait until the day after baking everything to eat it! As with most cold pies, the flavor is often better once it sets and the flavors get to know each other properly.
This pie is made for around 12 decently sized slices and its carb content is significantly low. Per serving we’re seeing around 70 carbs which is absolutely incredible.
