This pie is one of the easiest and quick to whip up with just a few simple ingredients. Rich, creamy, and tasty no-bake dessert with summer tropical feel. A refreshing pie with coconut and pineapple. This mimics a cheesecake because of the cream cheese and cool whip that add richness to this pie. Feel free to garnish with the remaining cool whip when serving and sprinkles of coconuts and pecans. No wonder they call it a Million Dollar Pie.
My mom loves this pie so much that she makes this three times a week! She’s obsessed with how easy this is to make, with the simple ingredients, and easy steps. It’s no doubt that this is the perfect summertime dessert that you can serve any season!
Sugar, cream cheese, cool whip, coconut, pecans, pineapple, and graham cracker pie crust are all you need to make this and a few simple steps. In reality, all you have to do is mix everything and chill until ready to serve. Easy peasy, right? Well, those are the main reasons why my mom and much more love this recipe so much. And it is a wonderful dessert to serve on a hot summer night. The kids love this and my husband can finish the whole thing if we allow him to. My mom? She’s happy with just a slice. A slice of her favourite pie every after a meal.
