This delicious Low Carb Coconut Pie is the first recipe named by my husband. Undertaker’s Delight is no reference to the famous wrestler, but rather to his profession. Since realizing the need to trim carbs from Steve’s diet, this pie has become a comforting delight!

Even though one may have sugar sensitivities, dishes like Keto Strawberry Jello Dessert and Keto Lemon Berry Dessert can still be enjoyed as a mock sweet treat. They are helpful in reducing sugar and carb intake. We like them, but it’s time for a new dish.

Being a fan of coconut pie I recently made Steve this sugar free, low carb version. After a few bites, he named it Undertaker’s Delight. I smiled and happily agreed!

Starting with a Low Carb Crust

In its early stages of testing, this pie was made with a graham cracker crust, then to cut a few more carbs, I used a pecan crust (sweetened with a little stevia) instead.

That’s right, pecans! It’s so easy and delicious and gluten-free, too!

The ingredients are mixed together in a food processor and pressed into a pie plate like this Emille Henry Pie Plate. It’s a french ceramic pan that is heat and scratch-resistant, easy to clean, dishwasher safe, microwave safe, goes from freezer to oven to table, and durable for everyday use.

I have two of these nifty pie pans and cook in them again and again. They come in different colors and they’re not just for pies, either.

Using a piece of plastic wrap over the pie dough keeps your hands clean and helps the crust to evenly spread.

Low Carb Coconut Pie Ingredients

After the pie crust is baked, the process of browning unsweetened coconut flakes begins. This is done by continually stirring the coconut in a heavy saucepan over medium heat for a few minutes until most of the flakes are browned. Be careful not to walk away from it until you remove the pot from the heat. It will scorch quickly.

Next comes the mixing of the instant pudding with coconut milk. Yummy coconut milk! If you’ve never had the pleasure of tasting unsweetened coconut milk, you need to give yourself the experience. It is so light and refreshing and great on cereal or in a smoothie.

Now, stir the cooled coconut into the pudding. Next, whip the cream with stevia and fold into the coconut pudding mixture. Lastly, pour into the prepared and cooled pie shell. Refrigerate until the pie is cold before serving.

  • Hello Kay I just found your blog and I love your recipes. A couple of questions about the low carb coconut pie: You “fold the whipping cream into the pudding mixture”. There’s no separate meringue on top, correct? Did you also stir the coconut into the pudding mixture? It looks like you sprinkled the toasted coconut on top.

    • Hi, Phyllis! Thank you for your interest and compliment. Very encouraging! Yes, I fold the whipped cream into the pudding mixture and there is no separate meringue on top. Yes I held out a little toasted coconut to add on top as a garnish. Enjoy!
