Servings: 8

Active time: 25 minutes

Total time:


  • 1 1/2 c coconut milk
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar, divided use
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 4 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg(s), separated
  • 1 c white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 c sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 1/4 c heavy whipping cream
  • 1 baked pie shell
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar


  1. In a large saucepan, over medium heat, combine coconut milk, 1/4 cup sugar and cornstarch; bring to a simmer, whisking frequently.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks together in a medium sized mixing bowl, and gradually whisk in half of hot milk mixture until combined; whisk the egg mixture back into saucepan containing remaining milk.
  3. Heat mixture, whisking frequently, until it just comes to a slight simmer, starts to thicken up, and coats the back of a spoon; strain into a large mixing bowl. Stir in white chocolate until melted. Stir in vanilla and coconut, until combined. Chill coconut custard in refrigerator for 45 minutes, or until cold.
  4. Place heavy cream in a large mixing bowl; using a mixer on high speed, beat until stiff peaks form - about 2-3 minutes. Gently fold whipped cream into coconut custard until combined. Place mixture into baked pie shell. Freeze for 3 hours, or until ready to serve.
  5. When ready to serve, heat oven broiler (preferably on a low setting). In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on high speed, beat together egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form – about 2-3 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to medium, and gradually beat in remaining 1/4 cup sugar until well combined.
  6. Spread meringue over the top of pie. Broil until golden brown, which should take less than a minute. Serve immediately.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
