Easy Vegan Coconut Cream Pie

Another yummy no-bake pie coming your way. I am working on perfecting my pies, cheesecakes, and graham cracker crusts and I think I’ve cracked the code with this one. My latest masterpiece is this easy vegan coffee-infused coconut cream pie. The main ingredient in this homemade coconut cream pie is Mementa Coffee flavored Coconut Condensed Milk. Which tastes more like sweet, toasted coconut than coffee. It worked perfectly with this pie. I’ve used this brand of condensed milk before in my no-bake strawberry cheesecake and it was just as delicious.

If you love coconut then you’re going to love this dairy-free coconut cream pie recipe. My mother’s favorite flavor is coconut and she could not get enough of this pie. She even suggested that I added toasted coconut flakes to the gluten-free graham cracker crust. This creamy, no-bake coconut cream pie is made with only seven ingredients all of which are free of gluten, soy, nuts, dairy, and eggs. I hope you enjoy this simple recipe!

Most cream pies include eggs and milk. This recipe does not. Its main ingredients are vegan cream cheese, coffee-infused coconut condensed milk, vanilla, and lemon juice. The lemon juice helps firm up the no-bake cream pie. It does not affect the flavors of the pie. I want to be very transparent here. The coffee-infused coconut condensed milk provides only a slight coffee flavor. For those who may be thinking of making this recipe, but aren’t a fan of coffee, do not let this ingredient deter you. The coffee-infused coconut condensed milk tastes identical to toasted coconut.

Ingredients you will need to make this easy vegan and gluten-free coconut cream pie

Coffee-infused coconut cream pie filling

  • Coffee-infused coconut condensed milk Provides the flavor and sweetness to your cream pie. I’ve only been able to locate strawberry and coffee-infused coconut condensed milk. This brand of coconut condensed milk would work well too if you were looking to make a plain coconut cream pie.
  • Vegan Cream Cheese gives your cream pie a rich and creamy texture. I prefer to use soy-free vegan cream cheese brands like Violife and Daiya.
  • Lemon Juice, when combined with the condensed milk provides for a thick and firm texture.
  • Vanilla Extract 
  • Toasted Coconut Flakes

Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Crust

How do you make vegan coffee-infused coconut cream pie from scratch?

As mentioned, this recipe is very easy. Mainly because all of the ingredients for this gluten-free cream pie are already made. Making this homemade coconut cream pie is as simple as combining all the ingredients for both the cream pie and gluten-free graham cracker crust.

Prepare gluten-free graham cracker crust 

Making a gluten-free graham crack crust is very simple. I suggest using these graham crackers or graham cracker styled crumbs.

  • Add 1 box (8 oz /220g) of gluten-free graham crackers to the bowl of a food processor. Pulverize graham crackers in a food processor until finely ground into crumbs (skip this step if starting with graham cracker crumbs).
  • Pour crumbles and toasted coconut into a bowl and add 5 tbsp of melted butter 1 tbsp at a time until crumbles are soft and moist.
  • Press the mixture into the bottom and around the sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Set aside.

Preparing coffee-infused coconut condensed cream pie filling

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer add vegan cream cheese and mix for 2-3 minutes until velvety and smooth.
  • Add coffee-infused coconut condensed milk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
  • Pour mixture into prepared graham cracker crust and sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Is condensed coconut milk the same as coconut milk?

Condensed coconut milk and coconut milk are NOT THE SAME. Coconut milk is unsweetened and used for soups and curries. Condensed milk contains added sugars and is most often used in dessert recipes. You can not substitute coconut milk for its condensed cousin in this recipe. It will not be sweet at all and will not firm up in the fridge. If you aren’t looking specifically to make a dairy-free coconut cream pie, you can substitute the sweetened condensed coconut milk for the version with dairy.

Can I use plain coconut condensed milk?

Yes. Using plant coconut condensed milk will produce the flavors of a plain coconut cream pie. Which is also delicious. I suggest using two cans of coconut condensed milk and increase the amount of vanilla by 1/2 teaspoon to add roundness and flavor to your vegan coconut cream pie.

Can I freeze a homemade coconut cream pie?

Freshly baked coconut cream pie will keep for about 3 to 4 days in the fridge; refrigerate covered loosely with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Can you freeze coconut cream pie? Coconut cream pie does not freeze well and is not recommended for quality purposes.
