  • 1 can coconut milk 14 ounces
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp sugar or to taste
  • 10 mini graham cracker pie/tart shells or one regular pie shell, see notes


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine milk, sugar, and coconut milk. Heat to a boil. Meanwhile, combine cornstarch and water and whisk to fully combine. Once coconut milk is boiling, reduce to a simmer and whisk in cornstarch slurry. Continue to stir over low heat until mixture is thickened, to the consistency of pudding.
  2. Melt chocolate chips in a glass bowl in the microwave (make sure to stir occasionally so it doesn't burn). Divide coconut mixture evenly into two bowls and stir chocolate in to one.
  3. Spread chocolate mixture onto the bottoms of pie shells and smooth out. Top with coconut mixture and smooth out. Refrigerate until cool. Before serving, whip the cream with sugar and layer on the pies. Optional: garnish with chocolate shavings.

Recipe Notes

Adapted from: All Recipes.

You can use a regular pie crust, a graham cracker pie crust, or individual sized graham cracker pie shells. BUT the individual size shells come in packs of six. I made six and then put the rest into regular containers and ate it without the crust. Also delicious.
