Keto Coconut Cream Pie in 3 Parts
To make this recipe easier to follow, I divided it into 3 parts. It’s so easy to make a keto pie from scratch.
- Homemade Keto Pie Crust – Make the pie crust from scratch using almond flour and coconut flour. It’s important to blind bake it.
- Sugar-Free Coconut Filling – Make a custardy coconut filling on the stove.
- Whipped Cream – Super easy to make without added sugar. You can add some coconut extract, too.
Low Carb Coconut Cream Pie Ingredients
This recipe uses canned coconut cream, which is super thick and creamy. The rest of the ingredients are incredibly common and easy to find at any grocery store.
For The Crust:
- Almond Flour & Coconut Flour – is the best keto flour mix to create a delicious keto pie crust.
- Powdered Sweetener – Any keto powdered sweetener, such as erythritol, xylitol, monk fruit, or allulose, can be used.
- Butter – make sure that you use unsalted butter or replace it with coconut oil for dairy-free.
- Egg – use a room temperature large egg to bind everything together.
For the coconut cream filling:
- Heavy Whipping Cream – the best choice to use as a creamy base for the filling. Don’t substitute with milk.
- Coconut Cream – It adds a hint of coconut flavor. But if you don’t have any, you can easily replace it with the same amount of heavy cream and add some coconut extract.
- Eggs – large eggs at room temperature are the best. It helps the cream to bind. You’ll need to use 2 whole eggs and an egg yolk.
- Powdered Sweetener – I recommend sifting the sweetener to avoid any lumps.
- Butter – to incorporate it easily, use butter at room temperature.
- Vanilla & Coconut Extract – use a high-quality extract for a better taste.
- Xanthan Gum – helps the cream thicken, so make sure you don’t skip it. You can also replace it with guar gum, gelatin powder, or agar-agar. However, if you’re not worried too much about the carbs, you can use corn starch to thicken the pie filling.
- Shredded Coconut – make sure that you are using unsweetened shredded coconut.
- Heavy Whipping Cream – you have to use cold heavy whipping cream this time.
- Powdered Swerve Sweetener
- Vanilla Extract – It’s important to use a high-quality vanilla extract.
- Flaked Coconut – you can toast them or leave them as they are.
How To Make This Delicious Low Carb Coconut Cream Pie
If you follow the next steps, you will end up with the most delicious low carb coconut cream pie you have ever tried. It might seem complicated at first, but you can go through the instructions and watch the step-by-step video.
First, you have to make the almond flour crust. Start by mixing all the ingredients for the crust. Next, press the dough in s 9-inch pie dish, and poke holes into the bottom of the crust with a fork. Place the crust for 10 minutes in the fridge before baking it.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. To prevent the edges from burning, wrap them with foil.
- Make the filling: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the heavy cream and coconut cream. Bring to a low boil, then reduce to a low simmer.
Meanwhile, mix the eggs, yolks, sweetener, and xanthan gum in a bowl.
Pour half of the hot cream over the egg mixture and mix well, then add all the tempered mixture over the hot cream.
Take the cream off the heat, add the butter, and coconut flakes, and mix well until thickened.
Pour the cream over the cooled crust and let it cool in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
Prepare the topping: Put all the ingredients in a bowl except the coconut flakes, and beat them for about 3 minutes.
Toast the unsweetened coconut flakes until it turns a bright golden brown color.
Spread the whipped cream on the pie and decorate it with coconut flakes.
Make-ahead tip: Prepare the flaky almond flour crust up to 3 days ahead of time. The baked pie crust will be ready for the coconut filling.
Tips For Making The Best Low Carb Coconut Cream Pie
- For the best results, bring all the ingredients at room-temperature ingredients except for the heavy cream needed for the topping.
- To prevent the filling from burning, whisk it constantly while it is on the stove. Cook over medium-low heat for about five minutes until the filling has thickened.
- Don’t overbeat the whipped cream; otherwise it will separate and turn into butter.
- Leave out the shredded coconut if you’re not a fan. You will have a creamier, smoother texture that way.
How To Store Low Carb Coconut Cream Pie
- Fridge: cover the coconut cream pie with plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for up to five days.
- Freezer: If you want to freeze it, I recommend freezing the pie crust and filing separately. Thaw and assemble the pie the day before you want to enjoy it.
