I have actually never made this exact recipe, but I use it as a base to make sugar-free banana cream pies for my dad. It works WONDERFULLY. I simply replace the sugar with Splenda and the vanilla with banana extract,a drop or two of yellow food coloring, then pour the filling over sliced bananas in a sugar-free cookie crumb crust. Chill it and top it with sweetened whipped cream. My dad LOVES it and after tasting it, my aunt asked for the recipe so she can make it for my uncle, who is diabetic. If you know how to make a custard, this recipe is practically fool-proof and HIGHLY adaptable. 5 stars!!
Excellent, very rich. The only change I made was to incorporate 1-1/2 cups of the coconut (untoasted) into the custard filling, followed by the egg whites and whipped cream. Sprinkled the remaing coconut (toasted) on top of the pie before serving. Will definitely make again!
This tasted too eggy for us.
