Pina Colada Pie

This Pina Colada Pie is definitely a new favorite of mine! It’s so light and summery, and the pineapple and coconut flavors are TO DIE FOR! I’m in love with it.

If you like pina coladas, you definitely have to make these Pina Colada Cupcakes too!

Today, this pie is for a celebration! The guest of honor is a big fan of all things coconut and tropical, so pina colada is perfect. We are celebrating a virtual baby shower for Zainab of Blahnik Baker! Yay!

I’ve been following Zainab’s blog for some time now. She has some of the most beautiful treats (like this Coconut Lemon Layer Cake, Pink Velvet Cupcakes and this AMAZING minion cake). I finally got the chance to meet her in person back in February at the Food Blog Forum conference at Disney World. It was that weekend over lunch that she told us she was (see her post Beyond the Oven: A Bun in the Oven).

Exciting!

She is so sweet and I’m so excited for her. What a crazy new adventure! And she’s due in a month!

So we are celebrating with pie. And this is not just any pie. It really is so darn good, you will not want to share. I really, really didn’t. But I’m working on my fitness and eating a whole pie myself just wasn’t in the cards. However I did eat more of this pie than most things I’ve made recently. #truth

The filling is super light, made with cream cheese and Cool Whip. You could definitely use homemade whipped cream too. The filling is flavored with coconut extract and little coconut rum. Not exactly baby friendly, I know, but it’s pina colada! You could totally leave it out though and add a touch more extract.

The pineapple filling is next. OMG.

I actually had to make this pie multiple times because of this layer. The first time it wasn’t thick enough and the pie was more coconut than pineapple, thus missing out on the perfect combination of two wonderful flavors that make a pina colada.

The light, mousse-y coconut layer with the fruity pineapple layer is just to die for. I know I keep saying that, but really.

The only way to make it better was to top it with fresh whipped cream flavored with a little bit of pineapple and coconut.

You really have to make this pie. It’s begging you to make it. I’M begging you to make it. I mean, it’s for a good cause. It’s a celebration pie. 🙂

And be sure to check out some of the other tasty food that people “brought” to the shower! It all looks so good!

    This sounds delicious – it went right into my dessert Pins! I do have a question, though. Should step 6 be to stir in Cool Whip, not whipped cream?

    Pina colada in a pie is much more exciting than in a drink. I could get down with this! Great choice for a coconut lover like Zainab, Lindsay!

  15. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

    It’s been a long time since I’ve had a pina colada, so long that it was before I finally warmed up to coconut and eventually fell in love. I have made a pina colada inspired smoothie since those coconut-fearing days and it was quite tasty. I’d love a slice of this pie!
