Baked or no baked keto pie crust
You will love this keto coconut cake, I'm sure! You can make it in literally 15 minutes! There is an option to make it as baked or no bake pie. Sounds fantastic!? It is! Ingredients are completely the same but you can decide bake or not to bake. If you have oven and you have 10 minutes more, bake it because the taste will be better. Whole cake will have very rich flavor if crust is baked.
If you decide not to bake it will still be great. If you don't have oven or you do't want to heat your home because it's too hot in your part of the world, you will definitely love this recipe!

The best low carb coconut cream pie
When I tell you that this is the best low carb coconut cream pie, you need to believe me. Keto sweet pie crust is delicious and so versatile, baked or no baked.
Cream is so smooth and rich. Heavy whipping cream is cooked with eggs and vanilla and they are so good combination. When you add mascarpone into that yumminess and a tablespoon of butter, OMG! You literally get heaven on your plate!
When I tried this cream for the first time, I couldn't believe how good it was. Cream has so rich taste, and you need to add vanilla because then you get real vanilla cream. On top of the cream goes full cup or roasted shredded coconut.
You can use raw shredded coconut, but roasting on a pan will give special aroma and flavor, it will be so much better. Don't forget to leave 1 tablespoon of coconut to sprinkle on top of whipped heavy cream.
However, this vanilla cream is so rich and strong, so you need to put whipped heavy whipping cream on top of vanilla cream. I don't put any sweetener in heavy whipping cream. I just mix good quality heavy whipping cream until firm peaks are formed. When ready just put it on top. Whipped heavy cream gives fluffiness to this pie and it makes pie lighter.
Keto coconut cream pie serving
With serving of this coconut cream pie you don't have any problems. It goes perfectly on every way. Only problem you can have with this keto cake is that it is gone too fast. I try to leave a piece for myself to have it with a cup of tea in the evening.
Cup of tea before going to bed is my little ritual that makes my life so much better. I have opportunity to reflect on my day, everything that worked well and what I should improve. Time to think and create my next day and week. That little moment, it's 10 or 15 minutes only, but my whole week is more successful if I manage to have these 10 minutes for myself in the evening.
Definitely it makes me more productive, more successful and more happy I would say. So, I can recommend you, make this delicious keto coconut cream pie, make yourself tea or coffee and enjoy it with yourself! You will see how good you will feel!
