I was really underwhelmed by this recipie! Seduced by the fabulous reviews and ease, I was expecting a lot more. Head my warning... DO NOT MAKE THIS FOR COMPANY. As is, it has the gastronomic aplomb of a budget cafeteria dessert! It essentially tastes like vanilla pudding with cool whip on top. The coconut flavor is nearly non-existant.
Undaunted, I altered this recipe and found it was improved by:
- adding a can of Cream of Coconut (not coconut milk)
- using an oatmeal cinamon graham cracker crust
- serving it in custard cups instead of pie or spring form pan (the Cream of Coconut will alter the firmness of the pudding)
While the end result was a little sweet for my taste, everyone else enjoyed it enormously. The stronger coconut taste masked the non-excitment of vanilla j-ello pudding. I may try making it again and substituting coconut extract in lieu of the Cream of Coconut.
